Nintendo Wii

Nintendo Wii Introduction
Nintendo’s Wii video game system (pronounced “we”) is designed to attract people, regardless of their age or video game experience, to sit down and play together–whether they’re in the same room or on different sides of the globe. The system’s name reflects this simple idea. It’s easily pronounced in a variety of languages, and the distinctive spelling suggests two players side by side.

Nintendo Wii Design
The sleek Wii console is white in color and can be displayed either vertically or horizontally. Featuring a remarkable wireless controller experience. Sensors determine the Wii Remote’s position is in 3-D space, which means that racing-game steering and a tennis swing, for example, are done through movements of your hand rather than by just your thumbs. The controller also has a force feedback “Rumble” feature and an expansion port for use with accessories, such as the Nunchuck, which adds an analog thumbstick and trigger buttons. At 1.75 inches high by 6.25 inches wide by 8.5 inches deep (when oriented horizontally), it is a sleek gaming unit.

Nintendo Wii Features
* Plays two disc formats in a single, self-loading media bay
* Features a processing chip from IBM and a graphics chip from ATI
* Backwards compatible with all Nintendo GameCube games and most peripherals
* Built-in Wi-Fi access for easy connection to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection gaming service

Nintendo Wii Performance
The system boasts 512 MB of internal flash memory, two USB 2.0 ports, and a slot for SD memory expansion. Wii’s technological heart – a processing chip developed with IBM and code-named “Broadway” and a graphics chipset from ATI code-named “Hollywood” – are said to deliver stunning performance. Instead of a tray, Wii uses a single, self-loading media bay that will play both 12-centimeter optical discs used for the new system, as well as Nintendo GameCube discs.

Whats included in the package
This System includes: Wii Console, Wii Console Stand, Wii Remote, Nunchuk, Sensor Bar, Wii AC Adapter, Wii AV Cable.

The Wii is focused squarely on delivering fun and innovative gameplay. Whether they are young or old, expert gamers or beginners, Wii players will enjoy this system together. Two features Nintendo thinks will create even new levels of gaming community are the built-in Wi-Fi access, supported by a new online gaming service, and Wii’s intuitive, wireless, motion-sensitive game controller.
