If you are one who needs a DVD player with your system, Nintendo finally announced something major today.
According to GameDaily, later in the year, you can purchase and upgraded Wii that will have DVD playback. The unit will cost a little more than the unit you will see at launch and will be available later in the year as well. When asked if people who buy the unit at launch can upgrade to the DVD via downloads they stated that it does “requires more than a firmware upgrade.”
