    When I first got my GameCube I was a little upset that it could not play DVD's it was not to big of a deal but I was wondering do you think that it had any impact on sales?

    I think it would have a bit, I certainly was a little disappointed when I heard that it could only play the small GC discs.

    Yeah... I found it annoying when I heard about it... yet I still purchased it because I loved Nintendo.

    I doubt it had that much of an impact, but I'm sure it didn't help, either. I heard that's why Blockbuster practically shuns GC. Doesn't play DVD's, don't rent DVD's.

    nintendo are right to say that games consoles are for GAMES, not a load of other stuff, get rid of that, and they can focus on gameplay, ie, thats why we have the wii

    Additionally, at E3 2005, Nintendo revealed that a small internal attachment to be sold as an add-on to the console will allow Wii to play DVD-Video.

    Taken straight from the Wiki article.

    I don't think they've announced that yet. They haven't even announced the official price of the console itself.

    I doubt DVD playback hurt sales. Heck, I didn't even use the DVD player on my PlayStation2.
