Originally the Wii was going to be released with a built in player, but when the final specs arrived Nintendo the DVD feature was removed. Now Gameindustry.biz confirmed that an “enhanced” Wii is in the works for next year and one of the new features will be a built in DVD player. Currently Nintendo only plans to release the upgraded Wii in Japan. Maybe the enhanced Wii will be the next Panasonic Q (region free Gamecube with a DVD player) or maybe it will get a global release. While playing DVDs is an added bonus, that version of the Wii is probably going to cost more. Also like most people I have plenty of devices that play DVDs, which makes having a Wii that does it unnecessary. What about you? Is it worth waiting a year or more for a supercharged Wii?
