    It cannot play DVDs as it doesn't have an MPEG-2 decoder. This isn't something that can be downloaded and an extra piece of hardware is needed. A new version of the Wii will be released later this year which has the chip but existing Wiis won't be offered an upgrade

    the DVD playing functionality is a hardware issue. it cannot be resolved by a download.

    why does everybody care so much about this? im just assuming here, but if you can buy a wii, you probably already have a dvd player.... so why does it matter?

    because people want to save space and don't like a million wires cluttering up the back of their entertainment center

    not only that, right now, dvd's are getting old, why would nintendo put a dvd chip on the wii, when ps3 already have blueray..... I would say it would be a waste for nintendo doing a wii with dvd playback... almost every house have a dvd player. they should be worrying about high definition dvd playback or blue-ray disc playback
