    They ruled out including one at launch. This doesn't mean they can't add it as an update later on.

    Okay, if not a DVD, what about home movies and videos from the internet?

    I own a PMP(portable media player) that I use to store all of my music and movies. It has the capability of hooking up to a TV, which eliminates the need for a DVD player, while functioning as a PVR to record TV shows.

    This essentially eliminates four devices: iPod, portable DVD player, console DVD player, and PVR all at the size of the iPod.


    I think as a multimedia center, the Wii could eliminate the DVD player all together. Why, you ask? Because people hate how clunky they are.

    Furthermore, if Nintendo were to add support for a USB HDTV tuner and TiVo-esque recording software, you would have everything you need in your livingroom with just a TV and the compact size of the Wii.

    That could eliminate a lot of hassle for people, especially with everything on the Wii organized as channels- a format they're already familiar with.

    If DVD playback is made possible through a software/firmware update, I wonder if Nintendo or some third party will make a wiimote that has more buttons for DVD playback, like a pause/play, fast forward, skip scene, etc.

    Better yet, why not have it gesture based?

    Hold A button and make a 90 degree angle for play, two vertical lines for pause, a square for stop, etc.
