    That is a custom case for the Wii, it's already available.

    Here, it will void your warranty since you have to remove the original casing, however if your Wii is already out of warranty and you understand the dangers of ESD to electronic devices (and know how to safe-guard against them)...

    If you can't google out a satisfactory shop online, then you can find them all day long on eBay...

    Don't feel like voiding the warranty or taking the risk of ESD damage, they've got chrome decals in all sorts of colors, from chrome blue to pink chrome.

    DVD on the Wii is very possible. Considering that the Wii Game Discs are basically the same as DVD disc. Not to mention it's already been done by modding.
    GAME OVER

    What do people talk about things of which they have no solid knowledge. Wii games are DVD disks, so all you need is a software decoder to play movies. 'Wii doesn't read DVD'... sheesh.

    Actually, the Wii uses an optical disc drive LIKE DVD, however the bit arrangement is NOT DVD. Yes, it's the same laser width and everything, however the bit encoding is in fact different and the controller cannot be bypassed without a hardware mod.

    Understanding WII/Gamecube Optical Disks

    I forget who owns the patent rights to the DVD format, however instead of paying royalties the the DVD format owners Nintendo went with a generic format instead. The Wii's drive CAN read DVD discs when the on-board controller is bypassed, since hardware wise they are compatible and which is partially how mod-chips work (and able to provide DVD playback), however the factory default Wii relies on this controller for it's data. The controller on the typical default Wii cannot be flashed, therefore without that hardware modification they cannot change the way the controller reads the disc's bit encoding. This is generally why Nintendo says they need more than a firmware update to add DVD support.

    I'm personally not too excited about DVD playback. I play DVDs on my PS3 since there's pretty much nothing else to do on it. This would be a good time for Nintendo to address the original flaws that plagued the Wii, for example the paltry, insignificant, microscopic 512MB flash memory. Who knows how much that boils down to after formatting and firmware. If apple can get a 80GB HDD in the ipod video, then Nintendo can do it. Unfortunately you would run into proprietary hardware territory, which no gamer likes (COUGH Microsoft overpriced 120GB HDD COUGH COUGH). As much as I really like the Wii, it was outdated the moment it was released because of the storage space. DVD playback is cool, but since the Wii is still selling like hotcakes, there's nowhere to go but up. Look at it this way, if you REALLY need a DVD player pick up a BluRay/DVD/media/music/PS3 player. Now, there's a case of paraois schizophrenia.

    From what I understand, yes, they've been confirmed. However they will not release them until suppy issues have been resolved. With that in mind, they are talking about another sell-out holiday season with the Wii remaining in short-supply and "hard to find" status. (Basically, buy them if you find them now. Store them until after "Black Friday" and post them for sale on eBay. )

    So, I don't expect to see any changes to the Wii until sometime next year. If Nintendo can figure out a way around it's optical drive's controller limitations and able to create a "bit flip" converter of sorts we may still see DVD playback via WiiWare, who knows.

    The other thing that gets me is that they've flat out shot down the idea of a hard drive add-on, which makes little sense. With Neo-Geo and even Turbo-Grafx16-CD to hit WiiWare, that 512mb flash is going to be horrible. I know the Wii has the SD slot, but has anyone actually tried removing the card once it's put in there? I've got small hands and even I had trouble with the way they've designed it, so swapping SD cards regularly is a pathetic means to offer a storage solution.
