    No suprise there. But that's where homebrew comes in, ahah!

    And, this.
    The reason for that is that we feel that enough people already have devices that are capable of playing DVDs and Blu-ray, such that it didn't warrant the cost involved to build that functionality into the Wii U console because of the patents related to those technologies.

    Yes, I did, at the least. I'd known for a good few weeks now.

    Not that it matters anyway, DVD playing is for my laptop or PlayStation 2.

    Was that really necessary? And besides, one of the Mods already posted a thread about it Here, so technically this thread is braking the rules, seen Here, in case you forgot to read them

    Hi yes, hello. I've been trying to get the hang of playing on a set of Donkey Konga bongos. I've got the hang of waveshining into double laser 360 half pipe bananarama, but I'm having a hard time smash attacking. How loud should I be clapping?

    do you really need dvd in a game console? it'd just wear out much faster, then you're out a couple hundred. while a basic dvd player cost about $20 now w/ bluray soon following.

    i'd rather WiiU have 3d!

    Speaking of rule breaking... .-. C'mon now, no need to be hostile to anyone wishing for everyone to follow the rules closer, not like he started cussin' ya out. That, and try saying that to a mod, dude. :P

    Word. Not to mention DVD players are usually more practical in general. I'll take a remote over my controllers any day, lol.

    ... That makes me wonder. Would it be possible to hack the 3DS to play 3D movies, without the glasses? Or is the technology involved an entirely different process from traditional 3D... Hmmm.

    There have already been 3D videos and movie trailers on the 3DS. It doesn't require any hacking. The video just needs to be in the correct format.
