DVD-ready Wii for Japan

Nintendo has reversed an earlier decision to exclude DVD playback from the Wii, at least in Japan, GamesIndustry reports. The game console had initially been planned to play DVDs everywhere, but the company later reasoned that this would be an unnecessary expense. A spokesperson is now saying there are "currently plans" for a DVD-ready Wii in Japan. The exact date of its release is unknown, but the same spokesperson cautions Western gamers that they may not receive DVD playback. "There are currently no plans to bring this model to Europe or the US," the spokesperson says.
