    Dude its a DVD-ROM in the Wiis, where did you get the information they don't have DVD drives? Try looking around on the net, especially at technical specifications of games as they clearly state 'DVD-ROM'.

    It will most likely be a codecs update and added via the channels, it would undermine the whole purpose of Wii channels if they released a new one.

    You actually think they could put a game thats so massive like Zelda on a normal CD for an example?

    I'll try to find what I read. But im pretty sure it doesn't and they the new model with the DVD drive will be $100 more then the Base and it will be an option.

    Nintendo Wii specs

    Processors:
    o IBM PowerPC “Broadway” CPU :
    o ATI “Hollywood” GPU :
    * Memory:1T-SRAM and DRAM
    o 512 MB built-in expandable flash memory
    * Ports and Peripherals:
    o Two USB 2.0 ports.
    o Wireless controllers.
    o a single proprietary output for video and audio.
    o 4 Nintendo GameCube controller ports and 2 Nintendo GameCube memory card ports (for compatibility).
    o Optional USB PC-compatible 802.11b wireless router.
    * Media:
    o Slot loading optical disc drive compatible with both 12 cm and 8 cm proprietary optical discs (again, for GameCube compatibility) as well as standard DVD discs. The proprietary optical discs will hold 4.7 GB (single layered) and 8.5 GB (double layered).
    o 2 front loading SD memory card slots.
    o Nintendo has announced that the Revolution will have a content ratings system in its console, having age restrictions as follows: PEGI 3+, 7+, 12+, 16+,18+, and ESRB EC, E, E10+, T, M, and AO.
    * Networking:
    o Wi-Fi by the Broadcom Corporation:
    + Built-in 802.11b & 802.11g support.
    o No Ethernet port built-in, though Iwata has mentioned that a USB-attachment Ethernet port peripheral will be released, though no further information is known.
    * The final version will be smaller than the prototype presented E³, which was described as being “about the size of three stacked standard DVD cases”.

    Just for clarification, the Gamecube disc is also based on proprietary Nintendo technology, just because it looks like a mini CD, doesn't mean its tracks and sectors are formed the same.

    Case dismissed.

    Software update would be excellent, you can buy DVD players for $20, so it's not worth buying a new one, but I take my xbox to my cottage, and I plan on taking the wii this year.

    Apparently there was an error in that post. Theres 1 SD card port, not 2. Unless I still haven't found mine.

    Yes it will be a software update, for example on a normal computer you build, and I have build some, just because you install a DVD drive doesn't mean you can watch DVD movies. You need software to do it first, and that software will contain codecs which is basically the information the computer uses to decode DVD movie content.
