In case you missed the news, the Wii's swapping out MP3 support for AAC, killing your custom MP3 soundtracks. This little change is bundled with Photo Channel 1.1. But, it's optional—not a mandatory system update—so you keep on keepin' on with MP3 by blowing off the upgrade. The switch is probably due to some licensing snafu, so it's not a big deal. Especially if you just ignore it. [Go Nintendo via Kotaku]

Whether you use the feature or not is sort of irrelevant, isn't it? Everything (yes, even the iPod) supports MP3, but to kill it in favor of AAC? That seems like someone has been smoking the wacky weed out at NOA headquarters.
