Nintendo Misses A Trick

Nintendo history of missing generation vital features:

No CD support. Fans so wanted the same kind of demo disk distribution that PlayStation had.

Game Cube
No DVD Support. Fans in Japan bought PS2 consoles as cheap DVD players. And this decision left a lot of gamers around the world drooling over the Panasonic version that could actually play DVDs.

No HD support. That might not sound like much now, but give it three years when everybody is enjoying HD TV channels, HD Movies and HD games on other consoles. The picture quality on the Revolution will look horrible unclear and uncrisp, unlike everything else on HD displays.
