So...indeed there will be a Wii capable of playing DVD's, but so far it has only been confirmed for Japan, as will be due some time next year.
So yea. I would say this is a bad move by Nintendo. I would say that they should have just built in a DVD player in the first place. I would say this, but theres no need.
As the article states, you can just simply buy cheap DVD players anyway. What I think = if you want to play games, buy a console. If you want to watch DVD's, buy a DVD player.
Its obvious anyway that soon, both DVD's and players will come down in price, what with Blu-Ray and HD-DVD just about to kick start and all...
Hopefully this is new news :] (I usually fail in bringing news, its always "old"). I would have posted in the "News" section, but we lowlifes are not good enough
