Its really a matter of unlocking it with some attachment or card that you have to pay for (hopefully not a big ugly bulky attachment). You see, the DVD counsel or whatever they call themselves charge the manufacturer (and therefore you) a fee for selling a DVD or anything that plays DVDs, say 30 dollars or something for including DVD functionality. Price is important for nintendo so I can see why they'd only want you to have to pay that fee if you really want to use it as a DVD player. I hope it can at least play CDs out of the box, but then again who cares GIMME GAMES.
