yup the GC can't play dvd movies or music cd's, it only accepts that mini-format thing that GC games come on. In Japan Pana(ma)sonic released a $300 version of the GC that COULD play dvd movies (and probably music cd's), and it should be coming out here eventually. Heh I doubt nintendo's just going to sit back and let the whole dvd market pass it by....er....well then again you never know, they did do that with the cart-ish N64 to music cd's =\

In a different post, I believe James brought up a good point that Sony screwed it's sales by releasing PS2 and allowing DVDs to be played on it. They have to compete not only with other systems, but with the whole DVD market too, taking away money that could and should be going to them. I had never really thought about it, though at times, I find myself going to a DVD before picking up a PS2 game. . . no wonder my PS2 library is so small :D LOL

I am actually happy that Nintendo decided to for-go the DVD compatibilty for now, opting to let the games do the talking instead of all the 'special features' that other systems rely on. ^_^ Just my thought though. (Oh . . . . guess the same could be said for CDs too)
