After the success of the current Wii, its hard to imagine the point of adding another SKU to the mix. Especially one that is higher priced and will unsatisfy early adopters. Originally the plan for the Wii was to have an add-on Wii DVD player. Then later, there would be a DVD Wii version in late 2007. But after this years E3 and the success of the current Wii there will be no way for you to have a DVD playing Wii (unless you mod it). While I don’t think anyone will be unhappy with this desicion, its important to note that this could mean that they will add another SKU later in about 2-3 years known to some of us as Wii HD.
