On such a dull rainy day there is nothing better than a bit of hot gossip or rumours to stir the nation.
One particular blog today has it on 'good authority' from a Nintendo rep, that a new version of the Wii will launch in the Autumn.
Apparently the new model will essentially be the same albeit with DVD playback and be avaliable in a variety of different flavours (colours!). They go on to state that a DVD application will be avaliable for download via the WiWare download marketplace and so essentially any owner can get hold of this kinda thing.
But then didn't Nintendo say they didn't want to include DVD playback because EVERYTHING has it now? Well time will tell and we'll go on spreading the rumours far and wide...
