    Agreed. And also not that many scart or av in's on their tv's / projectors...

    It's much more practical to use one box to perform as many functions as possible and not have multiple remotes lying all over the place!!

    Even if Nintendo don't release a d-loadable option, I'm sure a chip/mod would sort things with an update...

    I hope Nintendo change their minds if what people say is true about them not bothering with a software fix.

    Signed.

    I really wish people would stop saying that its alrite for Nintendo to create a brand new type of Wii less than a year after the launch that has DVD playback capability. Thats not right and its not fair to the majority of us who bought our Wiis at launch. And like the guys above me mentioned not everyone has a lot of space for a DVD Player, a VCR, and a gaming system besides the tv. Basically its the principle of the thing that bothers me.

    yep consoles should be for gaming, in my opinion.

    Glad to see this member is now banned. I just get a little bit of heartburn over people who respond in situations where it would flat out just be better to apply the principle of "if you don't have anything nice to say, keep your mouth shut..."

    As for DVD playback, it is too bad that the drive itself is physically incapable of playing regular NTSC/PAL formatted DVD's.

    I did up a spreadsheet of all my Wii-related expenditures thus far. And with only two retail-boxed games (plus about 6000 Wii points thus far purchased) I have already spent in excess of $600 US. I really am not looking forward to the prospect of additional hardware to achieve DVD playback.

    Then again, I went into my Wii purchase with the plain knowledge that it would be for playing games and not movies/multimedia.

    It is very true that a family household has multiple DVD players already. My tv alone has a PS2 (1), Xbox (2), A real DVD Player (3), a Chinese VCD/DVD player (4), and apparently My dad is going to buy another one. so thats 5 DVD players total in one room. Which quite frankly is pointless to add another one, Wii.

    If Nintendo states they cant just manually upgrade the Wii to play DVDs with a patch via internet then there are probably legal issues, and or specific valid reasons to not release the patch.

    I am sure even if Nintendo released a DVD capable Wii, they will not replace existing Wii's.

    Doesn't Hacking your Wii Violate your Terms of Service? I am sure if you poke the wrong circuit and something doesnt work anymore and try to explain what this huge irregular mod chip thats been fused into your Wii circuit board is would be hell. So why does it seem so important just to play DVDs?
    I say it is not. :P

    Which is exactly why I am patiently waiting my wii. Sure, i could have gotten it easily about a week after launch. But instead, I sit here, wishing I had a wii, but knowing that the new one will be worth it. So, yes, I do think that those of us that have waited do deserve dvd playback.

    What do you think the Sonic Solutions software does? It's not hardware- it's software. The Wii firmware disables this function- and the Wii has no DVD playback software. This isn't a drive issue.

    Keep drinking the Kool Aid...
    wheres the proof of people hacking them just with software...

    and tell me, if it just needed to be "unlocked" why wouldnt they just let it play DVDs, whats the holdback if they can do it via an update?
