Nope. No idea why either. It's not like it costs much to put in.

I can live without the DVD and Blu Ray support however it would be nice if they did a software update to allow streamed content from USB Drives.

Posts may be more salty than Nintended!

I stick with Hulu on my Wii U.
It doesn't play dvds and my experience with Netflix seems to always have issues.

Four more months until Bayonetta 2.

No DVD, no Blu-ray disc and no CD playback. Only Wii and Wii U optical discs. Nintendo consoles are strictly meant for gaming and I'm fine with that stance.

Netflix. Hulu Plus. and Amazon Instant Video say hello. And don't forget Google Street View and that Panorama View thing w/ the $1.99 vids. And Wii U Chat, which could be a Skype competitor if anybody knew it existed.

But no discs other than game discs. They really should run video if they expect people to hook up 2TB HDD for their games though. I watch most of my tv on a USB thumbdrive plugged into my PS3.

Can I play Wii U games in my DVD player?

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

There may be a lame reason for lack of dvd and usb video streaming. Because you could easily watched copied movies on dvds or usb devices. So your only way to watch a show is the legal way by paying either netflix, hulu or amazon. Or if you're lucky, find the show you want to watch on youtube.

Doesn't cost much to buy a DVD player either ;)

If you care so much for your privacy, what are you hiding?

Watching DVDs became obsolete for 99% of the world population around the time that the internet became popular (see South Park episode and bankruptcy of blockbuster).

I don't really understand this mentality. "Thank God the Wii U has doesn't have features that consoles have had for years"?

I had fun once and it was awful.

yup, just rename you DVD player to "WiiU" then you shove a DVD into the "WiiU" and it'll work.

I was once a fighter in spirit alone, but not long ago I found something that was missing and became a fighter in body and mind too.

It's Unfortunate that WiiU can't play movies. To this day only the Panasonic Gamecube is the only Nintendo system to actually play movies.

Nintendo don't want to pay royalties to the dvd and blu ray consortiums.
