    The cannot play DVD's yet, the only possible way I know of making it play DVD's is by modding it. Which is illegal, so I wouldn't try that. You'll probably find loads of info of possible plans of a DVD or rumours of one if you use the Search Button.

    According to Nintendo, the current Wii's would take more than a software update to enable DVD playback. So there is no way an update could do it.

    They will release DVD compatible Wii's next year

    Hopefully they're black, because black is a shmexy colour. Or possibly in your case, purple and black/a very dark blue. Didn't you spray-paint your controller black?

    INCORRECT!!

    Modding a piece of equipment that you have legally purchased is NOT illegal, and is completely protected by fair use. You own it. You can mod it, re-sell it, freeze it in carbonite, or smash it with a hammer and blend the pieces in a blend tech blender. I don't recommend ANY of these, but they are all legal...

    Now, the primary reason for modding a console, to play burned roms of games you don't own, that is Highly Illegal. But modding itself is not.

    Also, little tiny mistakes in applying the mod chip generally brick and/or fry your system. So, you know, it's a bit dangerous.

    Blendec Blender, lmao, I love those videos especially the Iphone one. And I don't think this guy would ever MOD his system just to watch a DVD he just had a simple question but whatever, and your answer makes sense.
