The only way I can see them saying that is because with DVD playback the drive is in constant use whereas with (some) games it isn't. I'd consider multiple spin up/down to be far worse than constant spinning.
I agree. It seems to be far fetched to me. I think it might be true that people who also watch movies on their counsels do wear them out because of the added use, but I couldn't imagine a reason why it would be any worse than games.
