    this means that they can just add it via the channels thingy, since the wii allready has a dvd drive, they would only need to update the codecs

    same with hd... the 360 did it, they can do 1080p now, the wii can do it too

    it depends on what ninty does, hopefully, they will just make an update, but they might be asses and release a new one

    Your talking about the Future Wii right? The current model does not have a DvD drive in it.

    I don't know. It gives them a good excuse to upgrade the processor to keep up with any HD games.

    If they do a "DS Lite" maneuver for the Wii, I'll be severely pissed.

    I hope to god they just do an update, I can understand them releasing colors later, but not something as big as this.

    Yeah wouldn't that be a kicker if they released a better console and we couldn't play the new High Def games on our original wii's. I would loose it and become a Xbox fan really quick.

    Dude its a DVD-ROM in the Wiis, where did you get the information they don't have DVD drives? Try looking around on the net, especially at technical specifications of games as they clearly state 'DVD-ROM'.

    It will most likely be a codecs update and added via the channels, it would undermine the whole purpose of Wii channels if they released a new one.

    You actually think they could put a game thats so massive like Zelda on a normal CD for an example?

    I'll try to find what I read. But im pretty sure it doesn't and they the new model with the DVD drive will be $100 more then the Base and it will be an option.

    Nintendo Wii specs

    Processors:
    o IBM PowerPC “Broadway” CPU :
    o ATI “Hollywood” GPU :
    * Memory:1T-SRAM and DRAM
    o 512 MB built-in expandable flash memory
    * Ports and Peripherals:
    o Two USB 2.0 ports.
    o Wireless controllers.
    o a single proprietary output for video and audio.
    o 4 Nintendo GameCube controller ports and 2 Nintendo GameCube memory card ports (for compatibility).
    o Optional USB PC-compatible 802.11b wireless router.
    * Media:
    o Slot loading optical disc drive compatible with both 12 cm and 8 cm proprietary optical discs (again, for GameCube compatibility) as well as standard DVD discs. The proprietary optical discs will hold 4.7 GB (single layered) and 8.5 GB (double layered).
    o 2 front loading SD memory card slots.
    o Nintendo has announced that the Revolution will have a content ratings system in its console, having age restrictions as follows: PEGI 3+, 7+, 12+, 16+,18+, and ESRB EC, E, E10+, T, M, and AO.
    * Networking:
    o Wi-Fi by the Broadcom Corporation:
    + Built-in 802.11b & 802.11g support.
    o No Ethernet port built-in, though Iwata has mentioned that a USB-attachment Ethernet port peripheral will be released, though no further information is known.
    * The final version will be smaller than the prototype presented E³, which was described as being “about the size of three stacked standard DVD cases”.

    Just for clarification, the Gamecube disc is also based on proprietary Nintendo technology, just because it looks like a mini CD, doesn't mean its tracks and sectors are formed the same.

    Case dismissed.

    Software update would be excellent, you can buy DVD players for $20, so it's not worth buying a new one, but I take my xbox to my cottage, and I plan on taking the wii this year.

    Apparently there was an error in that post. Theres 1 SD card port, not 2. Unless I still haven't found mine.

    Yes it will be a software update, for example on a normal computer you build, and I have build some, just because you install a DVD drive doesn't mean you can watch DVD movies. You need software to do it first, and that software will contain codecs which is basically the information the computer uses to decode DVD movie content.
