    New 'Enhanced' verison of the Wii in development

    Nintendo is actually making an 'enhanced' Wii that will first launch in Japan.

    According to the latest edition of overseas magazine, Edge, Nintendo is developing an 'enhanced' version of its Wii console, equipped with DVD playback capabilities, which will launch in Japan next year.
    So from this quote, it'll have dvd playback but that will probably not be the only 'enhanced' part. hopefully, they might add some hdtv support or something, hopefully

    This will probably be like the Panasonic Q. If anyone remembers that. It was an enhanced GameCube that was only available in Japan. I think it was called the 'Q'. I don't have a source, but I remember it having extra audio options, and some other things, like DVD playback.

    No, can't and won't. Okay maybe that's wishful thinking but it does contradict Nintendo's philosophy.

    if this was true, Nintendo would NOT want anyone to know about it before the release of wii. it could do nothing but harm sales - i.e. some ppl would have the mentallity that they'll wait for the 'enhanced' version.
    therefore I have concluded it is most likely false.

    You could get these imported from Japan region free for about $1000 Australian, bit over the top really but still very cool, they might do it for the Wii as well.

    yeh i would assume that the next "wii" will be a gen 6 console if there is a "enhanced" version it will be most like likely japan only I would think nintendo would make the next wii a little more expanded some how and the next console will definitely have support for HDTV because i'd say at least 50% of america would have them by that time

    Please PM me before adding me!
