    Wii to play DVD's?

    So much speculation and rumors going around, here's one for ya. Nintendo has a add-on attachment that will allow you to play DVD's?

    Apparently I've heard that it can, not sure but would the insertion point for the mini discs fit a DVD or would it have to be an attachment?

    I heard that it can't play DVDs, but maybe Nintendo will make the attatchment for them.

    I hear that the machine can play a DVD with the purchase of the attachment. You can insert the DVD directly into the machine.

    Personally I would like to see the DVD player already in the machine but I understand that would only make the cost of the Console higher. Which is why you can purchase the attachment if you really want to play DVD's. It can also be a space saver if you don't want to have a bulky DVD player taking up your space.

    Guess its all up to you the consumer.

    The DVD capability may very well be built into the machine, which I believe was the case for the originial xbox -correct me if i'm wrong. Its really a matter of unlocking it with some attachment or card that you have to pay for (hopefully not a big ugly bulky attachment). 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.
