Wii to Play DVDs in America Too

When Nintendo first unveiled the Wii, they promised DVD playback. That’s not going to be the case with the first batch of consoles coming out at launch. The reasoning behind it? Most people already have a DVD player or a game system that can play DVDs.

Nintendo is now re-examining that omission and they appear to be correcting it. Even though a DVD-enabled Wii was announced not long ago for release sometime in 2007 in Japan, no American release was planned. Things have changed fast, as GameSpot is reporting that Roxio will provide DVD viewing to a future version of the Wii.
