    i read in a magazine that the wii had the neccesary hardware to play DVD's but that a channel would have to be released first.

    I still like the mp3 and online minigame ideas though

    I think that there should be a chat channel that you can access at any time. Maybe put it in the "Home" key function so that you can go back and forth between game and chat. Thats kind of how it is with some DS games and it's a great function. Still gotta go with the demo channel though. There is just so much potential there.

    Pretty good. I never thought of that. But with all the money Nintendo makes, I highly doubt they would pull a move like that. Despite that, that's a great idea.

    Same hardware, different format. Since the Wii optical drive is not firmware upgradeable to my knowledge means that the drive will require hardware modification or a dirty hack to bring DVD support to the Wii.

    To stop the rumors about that DVD channel. The Wii DVD laser would burn itself out by playing dvds. The end.

    That's the most rediculous thing I have ever heard.

    I have done much research on the Wii's drive and it is a DVD drive it can play dvds with out burning its self out the only reason the wii cant play dvds is because nintendo didnt want the royalty costs for the dvd name included in the price of the wii the Wii in its current state is fully capable of playing dvds with a software modification homebrew already allows it to be done also a movie channel would be possible if nintendo updated the firmware to allow usb hard drives for extra space and possible better codec compatibility for movie play on sd cards

    Please PM me before adding me!
