[QUOTE=coolcolors;2592903]That sounds like alot of contradiction in itself doesn’t it just look at the reply? Won’t support DVD/BD but the format is the BD format 25G and the hight density is 50GB. It won’t take long for someone to reverse engineer that unit and make it read/play DVD/BD media. They must be thinking there aren’t people out there up to the challege???
And curb pirating…you got to be kidding right?? Or have you not look around on the net pirating is alive and growing…curbing just like how they curb Sony and nailed them to the wall and all their users. Yea that is really going to curb pirates and their allies hack the Wii U even more…[/QUOTE]
look at the 360. If its DVD drive hadn’t been compromised, it probably would of survived relative unscathed by pirates. There is a flaw in earlier consoles, but they were able to remove it with a firmware update, and all consoles made in the last 3 years can’t be hacked the same way. Both on the Wii and the 360 it was the optical drive that was compromised first. I think it at least helps, using an uncommon format to curb piracy.
From a customer standpoint though. I used (and bought) my ps3 to play blurays. I only started buying a few games for it later on. I like that I don’t have to have an extra device on my tv stand to play movies. Its limited space, the less junk up there, the better.
