Crackers add DVD playback to Nintendo Wii

Posted on Tuesday, August 21 2007 @ 10:00:33 CEST by

Console cracking group Team Symbiote has released a piece of software which adds DVD playback to the Nintendo Wii:
In order to get the DVD software running, according to Maxconsole, users must burn the application with Clone CD, then run it in a modded Wii. The console will recognize the disc as a GameCube game, and will boot to a menu that allows the user to swap to a DVD. There is no official media remote for the Wii, but the software maps several rudimentary DVD functions to the Wii remote.

Nintendo’s decision to not include DVD playback on its newest console us likely because of the license fees required for support of the standard, which would drive up costs, eating away at the company’s profits on Wii sales. Each Wii costs an estimated $158 for Nintendo to manufacture.
