Nintendo’s Wii video game system (pronounced “we”) brings people of all ages and video game experience together to play. This simple yet ground breaking idea is expressed not only though the system’s evocative name which is easily pronounced in a variety of languages and suggests two players side by side but also through its innovative list of features and extensive list of playable titles.

A Little Box With Plenty of Power
As with every console much of the buzz surrounds the specs. The Wii boasts 512 MB of internal flash memory two USB 2.0 ports and a slot for SD memory expansion. The system’s technological heart — a processing chip developed with IBM and code-named “Broadway” and a graphics chipset from ATI code-named “Hollywood” — deliver stunning performance. And instead of a tray Wii uses a single self-loading media bay that plays both 12-centimeter optical discs used for the new system as well as Nintendo GameCube discs.
No bigger than a small traditional remote control the wireless Wii Remote is a truly multi functional device. The magic of the Wii Remote’s design lies within acellerometers inside the controller measure movement in all directions and at all speeds. In a tennis game it serves as your racket as you swing away. In driving games it serves as a steering wheel allowing you to swerve to avoid obstacles or pickup power-ups. In first-person shooters it acts as a firearm that you can point directly at an on-screen enemy. 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. The system allows for up to four controllers to be linked at a time and utilizes standard Bluetooth wireless technology. For those who prefer the feel of a traditional controller an adapter is available that fits over the Wii’s remote.
