Will my brand new (12.2007) Wii play DVDs?

    I've found so much information on this using Google and Ask.com and can't find a concrete answer. My Wii has HD capability and I don't know if that means anything. Are there differing consoles? I'd be able to check this if I was at home with my Wii, but I've got to work all day. Thanks in advance for the help.

    The Wii can not play DVD's, and the HD limit the Wii is capable of is 480ip or something like that. Not a big improvement from the normal visuals really.

    Miwii, what are you talking about?

    As I mentioned in my prior post, I just got this yesterday. I know nothing about what you mention.

    The Wii is capable of playing DVD's.... the rumour that "the dvd spins the opposite way" is just that.. a rumour.... there is no hardware upgrade needed for the Wii to play DVD movies. Basically if Nintendo wanted the Wii to play DVD's they can send us a firmware update... or if you really want the Wii to play DVD's go get a Mod Chip.

    which is it? Does it play them or not? You initially said it did, then you said it doesn't.

    The Wii drive wasn't made to play DVDs, it would only burn the laser up.
    It is capable of it tho. There are hacks that can do that. But as I said, the laser would quickly just burn up. T

    DVD is "old" technology sure, but it isn't old enough for people to forget about. I can possibly see these Bluray and HD DVD technologies fail to rise above this supposed DVD. Bluray and HD will probably be kept for gaming (more disc space for gfx/audio) and regular still hold enough space for DVD's now.

    I think dvd is just too new to bring out a blu-ray sony should have wated another 2-4 years.
