A Look at Nintendo Wii Accessories

An Introduction to the Nintendo Wii

 

The Nintendo Wii is the fifth home video game console released by Nintendo and is the direct successor to the Nintendo GameCube. Competing with industry heavy hitters like Sony and Microsoft with their Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 systems, the Wii has not only met but has far surpassed everyone's expectations. Launching the system in the Fall of 2006, Nintendo has enjoyed a considerable lead in the next generation console wars and it does not appear that they will slow down. The success of the Wii gaming system can be attributed to many different factors, one of the most important is the distinguishing wireless controller system, which consists of the Wii Remote (dubbed Wii-mote), which can be used as a handheld pointing device and can detect motion and rotation in three dimensions. The second aspect of the controller system is the Wii Nunchuck, which connects to the Wii-mote. Another notable feature is WiiConnect24, which enables players to receive messages and updates over the Internet while in standby mode. With a combination of these features, the Wii has become the system of choice for all gamers, regardless of age or gaming preference.
