ah here we go.

1) Yes, you will need to purchase the dvd remote, for 24.99 i believe.

2) Well, "going on the internet" id use as a loose term, it wont be able to surf the web, but if you mean online gaming, no it comes with a Broad Band modem built in.

3) Ummm DVD playback is when you stick a DVD (Digital Video Disc) into the xbox, and it will play it back as if its a DVD player. Simply put, it plays movies.

4) Yes there will be many quake-like games to play online - Halo, Unreal Championship, Quake 3 Special Edition, WWII Online, the list goes on and on :)

5) Yes, i would imagine you'd need an existing cable internet servie provider, but im sure they will debut their own service in the near future.
