I have heard rumours that later in 2007 Nintendo will release a Wii that can play DVD's.
Those of you wondering if this problem can simply be solved by a simple Wii System Update, someone from Nintendo says that is can't be solved by a simple update.
I personally think that everyone that has a Wii already is that high-tech that they already own a DVD player, plus every one else in the world. I think they should just leave it as is, cos i don't think customer's need anymmore reason to buy a Wii.
P.S: There are also rumours that this quote, un-quote '2nd gen' Wii will only be available in Japan and possibly in Northern America.
