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?
