    DVD Playback on Wii

    "A Nintendo spokesperson has announced that the company plans to release a version of the console with DVD-Video playback capabilities in 2007.[38] This corroborates an earlier press release by digital media company Sonic Solutions, stating that Nintendo had chosen their CinePlayer CE DVD Navigator software engine to provide this functionality. Even though software will be used to enable DVD-Video functionality, it apparently "requires more than a firmware upgrade" and cannot therefore be implemented through the WiiConnect24 network."

    Hopefully that finally ends the on-going dispute over this topic on these forums.

    No offense, but do people honestly NOT have other standalone DVD players?

    Running DVDs through a video game system has never been a priority for me....I don't know about other people. I don't know why it would be.

    One would assume that if the people on here have enough money to buy a Wii, then they would also have the time/money to save up for a standalone DVD player.

    Just seems ridiculous to me. Save up the $70 or so in cash it takes to buy a crappy DVD player (such as the one in the Wii).

    Honestly, I wonder what the ratio is on this board of people that have standalones to people that don't.

    If you buy a console just so you get a DVD player, thats kinda pointless. Who doesn't already have a DVD player?

    In Sony's case they wanted to up the price so they chucked in a blu ray drive.

    thats not that bad because as the above says the dvd player is so common now and the wii we have just now will be different from the rest(looking on the brightside)
    dvd players arent that expensive anyway

    games bought-Warioware, Call of Duty, wii Sport
