    It's also an added cost to add encoders to the hardware, something Nintendo is clearly trying to avoid
    ... but what do I know?...

    I see digital outputs on $30 DVD players...I am not saying that Nintendo needs to make the system 5.1 channel, but even Pro Logic sounds better when decoded digitally.

    I would gladly pay $10 more for the system (how much more could it cost if cheap DVD players have it) if it had digital outputs. Even if 95% of games only used Pro logic it would be more future proof for the longrun.

    One thing is that 5.1 taxes cpu's considerably more than matrixes like pro logic do, using considerably more memory as well- if nintendo is trying to create an efficient system with few bottlenecks to maximise power at a low cost, then it could be wise to avoid this. Pro logic still encodes in 2 dimensions.

    I have to say that I am not a fan of surround sound anyway because the 6.1 system I had before college had an annoying amount of wires, and really, it was cool to hear where sounds came from in the game world, but pointless.

    Yeah, it's not a lot, but to have the technology in the Wii and keep the low price, they have to cut the small costs, they do add up.

    I agree that it should have DD 5.1

    please check out this link: http://www.dolby.com/consumer/techno...ologic_II.html

    I have a Dolby Digital 5.1 receiver with 5.1 speakers. Game cube games can do very near 5.1 surround as can some Nintendo 64 games with Pro Logic I. Try games such as Need for Speed Underground II (make sure surround is selected in the audio options). The easist way to hear the effects is to drive with the in car view, your exaust will be heard from the rear surround speakers while crash effects can be heard all independantly from all the speakers.

    So its much more than 2.1 as some would say.

    However, I was really looking forward to a digital output! Pro logic II is still not 5.1.

    5.1 isn't that hard to program, so that's not the problem , i'd rather think that it taxes the cpu of the console too much.
