Wii: Leaked info, no DVD

Not all the news can be good. Perrin Kaplan has told Joystiq that the Wii will have no support for DVD playback, as this would add to the cost of the machine, and many gamers already have players. Meanwhile, a banner put up by British retailer Argos proclaims a UK release of March 2007. This is premature on Argos' part, but since Nintendo's European press conference is scheduled for tomorrow, it could be that Argos has just let some info slip early. March would be an interesting release window - it would mean splitting four million consoles between the Americas and Japan, not to mention going toe-to-toe with the Playstation 3. Of course, that may be what Nintendo is hoping for.
