Wii U Will Not Play DVD or Blu-ray


Nintendo Global President Satoru Iwata confirmed at a question-and-answer session for analysts during last week's 2011 E3 Expo that his company's upcoming Wii U game console cannot play DVD or Blu-ray Discs. Iwata said that the increased costs that playing video DVD and Blu-ray Discs would add, due to patents, outweigh the benefits. He added that he thinks people who would need to play DVDs and Blu-ray Discs would already have players.
