    but then again who cares GIMME GAMES.
    Exactly! My DVDs will still be played in the surround sound system, not a game console (unless i get a 360 or ps3 and an hdtv....)

    As much as i'd love a dvd player built in with no attachment required, I just wanna see the Wii release date closer.

You see, the DVD counsel or whatever they call themselves charge the manufacturer (and therefore you) a fee for selling a DVD or anything that plays DVDs, say 30 dollars or something for including DVD functionality. Price is important for nintendo so I can see why they'd only want you to have to pay that fee if you really want to use it as a DVD player. I hope it can at least play CDs out of the box, but then again who cares GIMME GAMES.
    Yeah you are correct. It is "a matter of unlocking it with an attachment or that you have to pay for"<-- by glassonion. If you really want to play DVD's on your Wii then it wouldnt be a bad investment. I personally wont but I know plenty of ppl who will by the attachment.

    From what I heard they found out how mad people got about the gamecube not being able to play DVD's that they have built in the option to play them on the wii.

    What's the use of built-in DVD functionality if it doesn't have digital-out for surround sound? It won't be of use for me and it's not going to happen, since it has already been announced that it will only be possible with an add-on.

    I'm pretty sure that it would be able to play CDs as well if it has the ability to play DVDs. It's just like your PC's DVD drive.

    well, am i correct by saying the disk will be 12cm anyways so it might just play them like the ps2...no mini disks....but in all fairness who cares, nintendo is all about gaming!
