    DVD compatibility?

    Yeah. Just wondering.

    Even though it doesn't say it on the specs page in plain English...

    I've done some searcing around, and so far, I find nothing on the subject.


    I'm just wondering, you think the Wii will come with DVD compatibility?


    EDIT: What the. After looking at a sticky I didn't see 'til now, I see that it won't. But may have an add-on.

    Sorry for being a moron!

    Yeah, but does your set-up include a surround sound system or HD TV? If so, then Wii wouldn't have been a good DVD player anyway considering it doesn't have true Dolby Prologic 5.1, nor HDMI. I wouldn't have minded it, considering the wiimote is a remote after all, but my Xbox is better for that anyway.

    Since Wii games are on DVDs, Nintendo could potentially send a firmware update to all Wiis, allowing for DVD playback, but that's highly unlikely, at least for quite some time.

    $10 Pre-ordered Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
    $100 Xbox console trade in
    $339.95 extra paid off
    $499.95 Total I'VE PAID IT OFF!

    its firmware, it is the software that the system uses and runs off of if im not mistaken, and they can upgrade it anytime if they find bugs or whatnot kinda like the psp did, they had firmware upgrades to use wma files and also use the internet if im not mistaken, but yeah

    it will probably be updated at some point but in all fairness, most people have a dvd player as well as a console, by keeping it out its probably reducing the costs

    Yes, my house has a dvd player.
    Just not in my room.

    I'm not going to go buy a dvd player to place in my room, because there's one just around the corner in the living room ;P

    Just saying, because having dvd compatibility would be.. A convinience.
