Still nothing confirmed, its a possability in the future to maybe help boost sales, the wii has the capability to do so now with a simple "mod chip" but that voids the warranty.
Really its a needless extra, who doesn't have a DVD player these days? Who cant afford a 19.99 one at Walmart? There is no point lowering the life of a video game console by playing DVD's on it. How many Ps2's died from over heating because of people using them for games and Movies? May they rest in peace.
