Nintendo Selects Sonic to Enable DVD Functionality in Future Version of Wii Console
Thats the heading of sonic.coms statement on the software they are creating for the wii. Something about the word "enable" leads me to be 100% sure that it is a firmware update.
heres the link.
the thing is, they state that this will be available in future versions of the wii, but they also state that : CinePlayer CE DVD Navigator is a robust, software-based DVD playback engine that delivers broad playback compatibility on a variety of platforms.
if this is all that it is, why cant we just download it?
