    wii getting out dated?

    whats going on, i just have a couple of questions. Im thinking about getting a wii because ive heard its a blast, but my question is will they make a better version like ps2 did with the slim ones, or make a new wii that is much better and outdated. So what im basiclly asking is, if i buy a wii now, will i get screwed, or is a now a good time to buy the wii? thanks

    No, but even if it does happen, millions of others will be 'screwed' with you, so you don't stand alone.

    J/K - No there is no updated Wii coming out for a long time. Although there talking about new colors but that's far away if you want to wait that long.

    Any future wii's will be..... well.... Wii's just different colors most likely but I dont think any functionality will be different. Though I'm sure they will incorporate pcb changes to prevent mod chips. Oh and by the way the new Slim ps2's suck ass. they have no fan and the lazer on them blow out in about nine months of regular usage.

    I've just heard different colors, nothing too drastic. I'd say now is a great time to buy one if you can find one.

    Are wii's relatively easy to find now, and whats the deal with the virtual console, can you just hook up to any ethernet cord that has internet access and buy games? oh and btw i didnt know that about the slim ps2, guess newer isnt always better. thanks

    The current Wii is capable of playing DVD's, It would take a firmware revision to the drive..... I believe this is what I heard. Don't some of the mod-chips out there allow the wii to play dvd's and use dvd +/- r/rw....... hmmm. Now that i think of it there may not be a decoder chip in the current wii, but that could be fixed with a software decoder. So if Nintendo where a kinder gentler corporation they COULD give everyone the ability to watch DVD's without having to go buy a whole new unit. This doesnt really matter to me though, I already have DVD players in nearly every room in my house.
