GameSpy: DVD Playback for U.S. Wii Coming
This makes no mention of a software update, this is a full out hardware upgrade that requires a brand new system, with a higher sticker price. Announcing an upgrade to a system that isnt even out yet, doesnt make sense to me. Personally, as someone who plans on getting a Wii when it comes out (and I HATE nintendo), this seems like a real kick in the teeth. He certainly makes it sound like there will be a system with upgraded sound capabilities too (the dvd playing one), and thats an insult to anyone that gets a launch unit.
