Rumor: Marketers head for the hills, a fond farewell to Kaplan and Harrison

Confirmed: no DVD playback for the Wii

Nintendo, in their almost-infinite tornado of news today, never mentioned anything on the promised ability for the Wii to play DVD movies. No mention in the press releases that followed their event today either? Hmm, how odd... So what does Nintendo's VP of Marketing Perrin Kaplan have to say about...
