    I been hearing for the past couple days that Nintendo might be coming out with a new Wii that you can watch DVDs too. Why do you need a Wii with DVD playback? Its 2007 99% of the population has a DVD player in their house also DVD players are cheaper than the Wii console. That will drive up the price of Wii too. Here is the question Do you really need to have DVD playback on your Wii or are you happy the way it is?

    No one really needs it. It only would put more wear and tear on the Wii's drive.

    Supposedly, with an update you could play DVDs on the ones right now. Whether its true and whether they would do it I'm not so sure.

    It will put the price up slightly but it's only for Japan:

    But Blueray movies are a waste of time and cost more.... Just buy a normal DVD and I use my computer

    Though I would like DVD in a machine [Easier for me] I think anything else [Music etc] is too far for a GAMES console

    Would be good if it would be playable just through an update. Would be good for us owners and Ninty if they did to that. Put more strain on Sony too if ya ask me.

    And to answer your question I don't think the Wii NEEDS a dvd player.. but people are lazy, and tight.. they prefer having a few things in one. I would personally love to have it be able to play dvds...wiis will sell with or without a dvd player..but it would help :thumbsup:

    I can't see the point either, maybe its to compete with the 360 and ps3, who knows.

    Wii for games
    360 is for games.

    HD DVD player is for anything else I have.
