    Yes, and even they don't play them that often, though they may jump on Fit a couple times a month.

    My ex would do the Wii fit stuff a couple of times a week :o She played right through SSBB and Mario Galaxy.

    Wasn't interested in the 360 though..

    Yea and tbh I don't think it does a very good job of it :o

    Isn't it something to do with licensing that it wasn't included?

    I'm pretty sure it was just nintendo cutting parts out because they didn't feel like paying extra development costs. I'm sure it had to do with some kind of licensing costs, not that they couldn't afford it.

    The Gamecube not having dvd was sort of understandable as DVD was sort of a new technology.

    Now however, it is just pure greediness from Nintendo not to include dvd support for the Wii.

    Can you have two systems running the same netflix account? Watching different movies? This sounds awesome if so, might have to move the Wii to the living room.

    Yea, but it worked :eek3:

    Never bothered me too much as I have the PS2 next to my 360 next to the DVD player next to the Wii and then my laptop lol.

    It works as a huge selling point to college crowds imo. I go through a lot of dorm rooms and more often than not, video game systems are used in place of a DVD player.
