Why did Nintendo release a new console but still keep the old sound format? Dolby Pro Logic II! I would have prefered the WII to have DD rather than the old surround they used on the Cube. If they ever allow the WII to play DVD movies then it will be a shame that we can't watch the movies in Dolby Digital. I would prefer this then I could get rid of my old DVD player that hardly works and use the WII.
