    I reckon Nintendo should introduce a dvd/cd channel to let you be able to watch your dvd's and cd's from the wii, as I also have a dvd player that I hardly use, sometimes just to watch a dvd or something but if they introduce a dvd/cd channel I'll be able to sell it, get some money and still be able to play my movies off the wii, I reckon that is convenient.

    DVD player read discs from the outside to in.
    Wii's read discs from the inside to out.
    You'd be watching your movie backwards :'(

    Nintendo could release it as a channel, yeah, And they could also reverse the way it plays (Or whatever [I don't know much about al; the techno stuff involved) so you can watch DVD's, But i dont know if nintendo will go to all that trouble..

    They can make us download it using our points, if they do introduce it, I would buy it for sure.

    its a games console. what i dont understand is why people want something to be more than it aready is. plus even if ninty did release it would have be already built in, there is no way to provide an update over the shopping channel. and the price of the wii would also go up.

    They are not able to make the Wii read DVD now, so if it's that important to you you'll have to buy the DVD compatible one that was planned to come out sometime later this year.

    For this it's not just a software issue, it's related to hardware. Nothing can be done without the release of a new updated system.

    I'm all for Nintendo having better graphics, online play w/ random people, and adult games but DVD capability? Thats not necessary. The videogame industry should be about games first. Don't mess with a good format. Besides thats why we have DVD Players.

    Poor acid into my eye please!

    Wii in it's current state can not support DVD playback - this has been made clear by Nintendo. A DVD player version of the Wii willl be launched, but current plans are for Japan only.

    If you don't own a DVD player, you're either very old or odd.

    why would you even want to pay more for a wii with a dvd player when you can buy a wii now and just by a cheap dvd player at wal-mart for like $20 and yeah i agree with HAZ if you dont already have a dvd player then you have some issues
