You can play DVDs through the Homebrew channel if you install MPlayer CE :thumbsup:

Buy a real console first.

do you have a lnk with instructions

Yea you will have to mod it first to get Homebrew channel then simply install a 'Homebrew Channel' via a SD card and DVDs work :).
If you find your version on the Wii (in system settings) this is for latest version

Just search the version of your Wii + softmod into google and you will find a guide.

it might bring something 'new' to gaming, but as a Wii owner and a previous 360 owner, I can say the Wii gets boring really quick, and 360 wins hands down....
Although if i could I would probably get a PS3 next..

Er ... if you're a lone (probably male) gamer then a 360 is your console of choice. For those of us with families then the Wii is the best console to own. The beauty of the Nintendo console is that anyone from 3 to 103 can pick up a controller and have a go at gaming. This was proved perfectly on Boxing Day when my 6yr old nephew was beaten at bowling by his seated 78yr old Grandmother!

Would both of them been able to play a game on any other console? No! And that's the main reason (as well as price) that the Wii has out sold the M$ and Sony offerings, it's the perfect console for family fun. The 360 and PS3 (I own the former as well) are great for teenage boys / men but the Wii is designed around family orientated fun.

I love how all the 360 and PS3 fanboys say the wii is crap, have they … I love how all the 360 and PS3 fanboys say the wii is crap, have they seen the state of the machines they call a gaming platform. The wii is easily the best console, it's the only console that brings anything new to gaming.



Yeah so funny ain't it. Like the 300+ terrible low cost pop/arcade/shovelware games and about 8 quality titles in a 3 year period.

Wii brought nothing new from Nintendo just more re-hashes of old. People only wanted Wii Co's they seemingly couldn't buy them therefore they must be good if everyone has bought up all stock. (There are hundreds of thousands of poor Wii's discarded after Christmas. Will you give just one pound to help rescue them.)

The control system is not really a success. It's wasted as it stands and only a few games are actually suited to it's use. It has been overused and put onto practically every game and had a detrimental affect on control on most of them.

Family machine ? and what * family lives in the harmony portrayed? Most will be yeah, great to start with which soon turns to can "Wii" no "Wii" can't be bothered.

M$ version will be no better it's just a poor thought out gimmick.

I like My Wii but hardly use it like most that bought them.

Still prefer it over a PC for gaming as the control system fits in your hand and as any serious PC gamer knows you cannot use a joystick on a PC it has to be a mouse and keyboard on a flat surface.

I used it this afternoon with my daughter and will be agin during this week while I'm off!

Just because it doesn't have GTA or MW2 doesn't mean it's a bad console - if it was as bad as someo of you make out it would have sold so many units!

They should do a still played as well as a still working :lol

Also that site is just making up numbers pulling them outta where the sun don't shine as it changes when viewed in real-time and they do not have access to modems in shops to tell them when 1 is sold on any platform.:lol

"The console sales numbers you see on the front page of NexGen Wars are estimates, and are not intended to represent exact, down to the minute sales as only Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony know the exact sales figures of their respective consoles. What we do here at NexGen Wars is compile numbers from NPD, Media Create, ChartTrack, as well as various other sources. We then take these numbers and, based on past sales trends, extrapolate the numbers out to give as close to real-time estimates as possible. Again, these are only estimates, but we are confident in our ability to bring you accurate and unbiased sales figures. Not only do we extrapolate the numbers out so they don't lag months behind with the official sales numbers, but we also update the numbers when new official numbers have been released to keep our estimates as accurate as possible."
