    DVD-Playing Wii?

    Feel free to beat me with a wet noodle if somebody else has already posted this.

    SOURCE: Wii Lounge - Story: Wii Lite?

    From reports in Japan, the Wii console, which is currently not able to play DVDís, might well be getting an updated version within the next year. Much like the DS Lite was released as an extension of the DS genre, a second Wii is slated for releas sometime in 2007, which will include the capability to play DVDís.

    If an updated console were to be released next year, we would also surely see the addition of box ready HD so that the hassle of purchasing additional component cables online will not be required. Itís likely that this will also be the time at which other console colours are released. While this updated version has only been rumoured in Japan, it seems likely that it if it were released, it would be available worldwide at some point.
    I hope that's not the case, just because I hat to think I could get a better deal if I wait....

    Nintendo, what from i read, has no plans to put a DVD player into the Wii console. But it wouldnt be fair to do a Wii Lite for only japan and making us wait longer. Dont worry, buy a Wii at launch and you will be happy (or only a couple days after).

    They are planning on putting a DVD player into the Wii but only in Japan (from what i've read).

    ^Seriously?!? Well i think that is not the best idea Because:
    1) Its not Fair Japan gets it and other countries dont
    2) This console is for gaming not for watching DVD's.
    Though it would be kool, i think it is wrong.

    Thankz For the Update

    ...wish people would stop worrying about a dvd playing wii...like the third or so thread aboutit. Buy it to play games and play dvd's on one of the 5 players you already have, and if japan gets it fine I'm not worrying about it because I'm getting myWii weeks before others around. with my xbox and ps2 that makes 7 dvd players (included garage and car) for me one more isn't going to make me happier

    I didn't realize somebody else had posted a link to this story already...

    Not everyone has 7 dvd players. I've only got one.

    EDIT: It's not that I need it to play DVDs, I'd just kinda feel like I got jipped if a year down the road, the Wii could play DVDs out of the box... You hate to feel like you missed something just because you wanted it soon - even if it's not something you need.
