Also a good percent of people already own a DvD player as it is. So why add an add-on that no one will probably even use? if wii did have DvD playback i probably wouldn't even use it because i Have a DvD player that works just fine.
Also true about the HDTV's more and more people are buying them but so far that only about 30% or so. So why add something that not every one can use. I for one still dont have a HDTV in fact i still own an analog TV i got when i graduated 7years ago and it still running fine so why should i upgrade?
