    ^^^ yes, but the bigN also said it was too be a very easily accessible console that was helpful, media friendly to new gamers, so a DVD feature would be help and be a form of media for non-gamers, so DVD was def. considered

    Maybe 2 wouldn't work but It'd be nice and when I get some money [Job etc] I will buy a DVD player anyways lol
    No, you're wrong, he was right. A software update won't help.
    If you don't have a DVD player, stop being cheap and buy one for $25. Or go buy "Cooking Mama" for double the price...-_-

    A DVD player would:

    1. Raise the price
    2. Be less original
    3. A wasted add-on

    Just my opinion, with no DVD player, the Wii is unique and original since bothe the X-Box 360 and PS3 have built in DVD players.

    False?

    I thought they said it was going to be a family media device. Allowing you to check the news, weather, and some other things you may want to do daily. Not that I used my Wii to check news or weather daily but I swear Nintendo was advertising it as MORE than just a video game system to hook a lot of parents.

    This has been done to death. If the Wii doesnt play dvds then deal with it. The wii doesnt make toast either does it. Same concept.
    If You Add My Wii Code, Please PM me with your code so i can add you. THANKS

    look right back down the ninty line there is no dvd playback (i dont think anyway) nintendo are pretty much the only console that is DEDICATED to the gaming side of things. wii is still sold out in many places too.
