    Well I have called all companies through their 1-800 numbers. A Microsoft Represenative stated they use HD-DVD discs. Although, I may be wrong. But however, Wii is compatible with DVD-Roms, but cannot play DVD movies, because of the way it was programmed. So even if the XBOX did [or does] they programmed it differently. I'm assuming they sold a seperate drive to accommodate everyone with a DVD player upgrade without making a built-in HD-DVD console upgrade (Market Strategy).

    They gave you wrong information, it's just a plain DVD drive. Or perhaps they meant that they use a DVD drive and that the console can do HD resolution and just explained it poorly.

    Whatever the case is, they should make a Blu-Ray USB Drive. That way they can take advantage of Blu-Ray Media such as BD Games & BD Movies.

    BD = [B]lu-Ray [D]isc

    its a normal DVD drive.
    HD-DVDs where only usable via that HD-DVD drive

    And tell me what you think about it!!
    Maybe you misundertood it. That is about there not being a 'Wii HD', not about there not being a new console to follow the Wii. He is right about the next console not just being a Wii with better graphics though, it has already been said by some Japanese developers that they think the next console will have something new that will 'blow people's minds'.

    The 360 uses normal DVDs, either 4.5GB or 9GB for dual layer, exactly the same as the Wii. The Wii does not have DVD movie playback because Nintendo didn't want to pay for the license, so it wasn't so much a technical reason as a financial one.

    Dprinny, I don't see anything like that on Wikipedia, plus I think that would be a legal issue.

    Raisinghelen, Wii can easily be turned into a DVD play with a bit of reprogramming (Ask those that have pirated their systems to make it play DVDs. Some of them didn't even need anything extra like a MOD Chip). Original XBOX could play DVDs, but with the way Microsoft programmed the system, it required a Playback kit which was a Controller Socket IR and Remote.

    Sony doesn't own Blu-Ray. They're part of the group of companies that helped develop it, but it's not technically a Sony product. There's no legal reason that would prevent Microsoft from releasing a Blu-Ray add-on. And I wouldn't be surprised to see the next XBox use a BD drive. And the next Nintendo console too for that matter.
