Matt Casamassina Thinks; Episode 1

Welcome to episode 1 of “Matt Casamassina Thinks”. Since Matt has been around since the beginning of time, whenever he updates his blog over at IGN I will be sure and let you all know ASAP. Who is Matt Casamassina? I’m glad you asked. Matt is one of the original authors of N64.com, one of the greatest news sites of the Nintendo 64 era and beyond. He’s been through it all and knows Nintendo inside and out. With that said, Matt’s latest blog entry talks about Nintendo’s DVD movie playback ability – will it or will it not be included in the Nintendo Wii?

Half-hatched and Ill-researched Theory About Wii Lacking DVD-movie Playback Now

Well, my topic pretty much says it all. Perhaps I’m being overly paranoid or maybe I’m reading too much into nothing, but I’m beginning to wonder if Wii will still offer the option to play DVD movies. Honestly, it’s not a big deal to me one way or the other, but I suppose someone out there might actually care. Maybe someone who lives in a village, which has yet to embrace DVD players. Or possibly someone traveling to the present from some time deep in our past. Yeah, I’ll move on…

Read on…

This is an interesting find and I wonder if Matt is on to something. Perhaps we will not be playing our movies on the new Nintendo system? Time will tell, and when it does I will be sure to pass on the message!

6 Million Nintendo Wii Systems by March 31, 2007

Following Sony’s announcement that the Playstation 3 has been delayed until March 7th, 2007 in Europe. Nintendo Representative Allison has sent “Go Nintendo” Nintendo’s official response:

Wii is on track to ship in Q4, Nintendo plans to ship 6 million systems to retailers around the world between its launch in the fourth quarter of 2006 and the end of its fiscal year on March 31, 2007.

I can’t help but feel a little bit of simpathy for Sony… Nevermind; my foot was cought under a manhole cover. Keep up the great work Nintendo!
