    The point is, everyone has mp3s on their ipod or computer, but this would be a very easy way to play them on your home theater.

    DVD Decoding Licensing, is actually only 4% of the total price of the unit. So thats $10 bucks. I think Nintendo would have ate that, rather then passing it on. They could recoup it on decreased hardware costs at some point, and would still be making a nice profit on each console.

    And of course this fits well with the big N's way of thinking. Once they release the Wii with dvdplay back, it will spur demand again, and also they wouldn't have had to eat that $10, since they have decreased hardware costs by the time the dvd Wii hits shelves.

    Is it possibly to have something connected too the USB connector too play DVDS?

    Why are you happy? It would be adding something. It's not like you need too use it.

    A response to "Wii - DVD Compatible?"
    "I put a PS3 disc in it and the Wii wouldn't read it. WTF is this world coming to? If I buy a video game console, it better take and kind of media I want. Even if I were to dust off some of my vinyl LPs, the bastard better work."

    i guess it's a good thing that the wii doesnt play dvd's and mp3's, cuz if it did i'd never have to leave my room.

    Spoiler Alert!

    Nintendo are stricktly for gaming and nothing else, is that so bad? I mean we have DVD Players to watch movies, and computers, mp3 players ect for music.

    Unlike Sony and Microsoft X-Box, they do use DVD players and Music and Games which is ok but it focuses away from the gaming.

    I hope that the Wii never does attach DVD and Music Playback because then they'll focus away from the True Meaning of their company of Nintendo.



    GAMING
