    The white version is just fine and I don't need to play DVDs on my console.

    agreed. I have a Dvd player for playing Dvd's, and a game console for playing games. The only thing I like is the Wii media player. That'll be nice onces it gets better.

    YES!! I totally agree, a game console it suppose to play games. If you want to play DVDs then play them on your DVD player.

    Well unless Nintendo secretly installed a DVD-ROM on all the Wiis and didn't tell anyone, You're going to have to buy the new system which is pretty bad. But if they did install DVD-ROMs on all the Wiis it would be rad to just download the codec on an update or if they feel like earning a little cash they can put the codec and a viewing program on Wii Shop Channel.

    aren't the games dvds already? from what i've been told, it's possible to have it play dvd's with a software upgrade.

    Not sure about that one let me double check on that.

    *Update*
    You're right the discs are in DVD format so it would just be an update.

    Kind of funny to those who won't know about it and they go out and buy the upgraded version. :devil:

    If you actually read, you'd know that Nintendo is not going to do a simple software update, they're going to release a new version.

    Colors are horrid , the dvd playback is NOT needed and the price reduction is no where near 2007 time frame. FALSE !

    You obviously don't know how to read, because DVD playback is confirmed. Price reduction will obviously come soon to keep competition up. Just like the 360 dropped sometime after launch, the Wii and PS3 will too.

    And finally, if you're expecting any colors, it'd be these ones:

    Yeah...the red and black ones are cool.

    Edit: Oh yeah...DVD playback isn't really needed...I'm sure everyone probably has a DVD player...if not, they probably won't have a Wii. Just what I think.

    I couldn't agree more:thumbsup: Also despite what that source says, DVD playback has been confirmed only for JAPAN, late 07 with a price increase.

    I totally agree. The only ones worth buying are the black and red ones.
