    A new Nintendo Wii ( Literally) in 07

    New Wii in 2007 to Enable DVD Playback
    Sonic Solutions signs on to develop updated console for last next year.
    by Hilary Goldstein
    November 13, 2006 - In a curiously timed announcement, Sonic Solutions revealed it had been chosen by Nintendo to provide DVD movie playback on a future version of the Wii. According to the release, Nintendo plans to offer a new version of the Wii in the fall or winter of 2007. Sonic's CinePlayer CE DVD Navigator, a standard in DVD playback software, allows for anamorphic widescreen video, motion menus and alternate camera angles.

    "To be involved in Nintendo's ground-breaking gaming console is extremely gratifying and a testament to the efficiency, flexibility and dependability of Sonic's technology," said Jim Taylor, senior vice president and general manager of Sonic's Advanced Technology Group. "Game consoles represent a fresh market and platform where we can introduce a new audience of potentially millions to the quality of our brand and the power of our digital media applications."

    It is unknown if there is an add-on DVD player is also planned. If not, those who purchase a Wii this holiday would need to buy a brand new system next fall in order to enjoy DVDs.

    With the Wii launch coming this Sunday, the announcement of an updated console shipping late next year doesn't seem very beneficial to Nintendo. But that won't stop us from lining up on launch day.

    unless you own a dvd player its pretty much pointless, its understandable why nintendo didnt come out with the dvd playback in the first place. because a game console should focus on the gameplay itself, and in these day and ages a dvd player is pretty much a standard thing around the house.

    people will probably buy it, but probably not in as much excess as the wii. In other words, not as many people will care about having the "new and improved" wii which of course will be more expensive than having the original.
