    Hey as most of you know supposably you can buy an attachment for the wii which could play dvds but i think if you had a wii you most definetly have a dvd player so i kinda pointless what are you opions ?

    now thinking about it, I agree with you all saying how it brings production costs way down. I was getting excited about just needing to have my cable box and Wii in my entertainment center because I thought it had DVD, but now hearing how it doesnt and why it doesnt... I suuport their decidsion now.

    I think a DVD player is nice to have in a console. Currently, my Xbox is my DVD player.

    While Wii's won't be HD and won't have Dolby Digital 5.1, it would be nice if you had it built into a car with a LCD screen.

    Wii will be one of the smallest DVD players around but if it didn't have one, I wonder if it could be an even smaller console?

    didn't they already surpass sony and microsoft?
    it would be cool though, having a dvdplayer in the Wii, since our crappy dvd player sucks...
    And since i'm gonna live on my own in a few years i'll need to buy myself a dvd-player, So i'd rather just have one in my wii :p

    yeah, its mostlikely gonna be an add-on you put in the gamecube contoller slots or the usb slots in the back of the wii
    kinda like the xbox dvd add-on: [​IMG]
