The WII is just fun, physical and great for the whole family. Our six and two year old even play. The kids, my husband and I really enjoy playing these games and it gets the family together, which is very important these days. Not to mention it's a good deal on the price.

-Anonymous quote

I am 32. A friend of mine brought over a Wii for a party. I had such a good time; I chose to buy one. This system came with the console, the sports game, and a single hand controller with nunchuck extension. I also bought the Fit balance board at the same time and the component cables to give me a better picture on my HDTV. I have played this system with kids 7 and up, with adults from 20 - 76. That's right 76, my grandmother loved this system.

Product Overview

The Nintendo Wii includes one wireless Wii Remote controller, one Nunchuk controller and the groundbreaking collection of five different Wii Sports games on one disc (tennis, golf, baseball, bowling and boxing), which anyone can play using simple movements, experienced or not.

Wii is creating worldwide excitement with its unique control system, an inventive, first-of-its-kind controller whose position can be detected in a 3-D space. The new controller allows users to pinpoint targets in games or move through the Wii Channel Menu with precision and ease. This intuitive control system will be understood immediately by everyone, regardless of their previous experience with video games. With this one small controller, Wii makes games both easier and more intense than anything previously experienced. For example, in the Wii Sports tennis game, players swing the Wii Remote like a racket to hit the ball, as in real life. They can add topspin or slice the ball just by angling their hands and wrist like they would in a real match.

Overview:

  • Design: Featuring a compact design that makes it a natural addition to any television setup, the Wii console is white in color and can be displayed either vertically or horizontally
  • Size: About 8.5 inches long, 6 inches wide and less than 2 inches thick (roughly the size of 3 DVD cases stacked on top of each other)
  • Network: The Wii console communicates wirelessly with the Internet via IEEE 802.11 or a USB 2.0 LAN adaptor. Wii also can connect wirelessly with Nintendo DS.
  • GameCube Compatibility: The Wii is backward-compatible to all Nintendo GameCube games and includes four ports for controllers and two slots for memory cards
  • CPU: PowerPC CPU (code-named “Broadway”), made with a 90nm SOI CMOS process, jointly developed with and manufactured by IBM; GPU developed with ATI
  • Media: A single self-loading media bay plays single- or double-layered 12-cm optical discs for the Wii console, as well as 8-cm Nintendo GameCube discs
  • Input: four Wii Remote controllers can communicate with Wii, which features a bay for an SD memory card
  • Output: an AV Multi-output port for component, composite or S-video
  • WiiConnect24: The Wii console can communicate with the Internet even when the power is turned off. The WiiConnect24 service delivers a new surprise or game update, even if the system is idle. Users can connect wirelessly using IEEE 802.11 or a USB 2.0 LAN adaptor.

Wii Sports Game

  • Wii Sports Tennis - Players grab the Wii Remote controller like a racket and swing – the game registers forehands, backhands, volleys, lobs, slices, spin and power depending on how fast the user swings and at what angle. Don’t worry about moving around the court to get to the ball – the game automatically moves players into position. (1-4 players)
  • Wii Sports Baseball - Players grip the Wii Remote controller like a bat and swat fastballs out of the park or fire a fastball over the plate with a flick of their wrist. Timing and bat speed will make all the difference between going yard and whiffing, so keep an eye on the ball and swing for the fences. In the two-player game, one player pitches and the other bats – all fielding and running is automatic so that players can focus on the action. (1-2 players)
  • Wii Sports Golf - Step up to the tee, hold the Wii Remote controller like a golf club and swing naturally to smack the ball onto the green. The harder players swing the club, the farther the ball will fly. Be careful, though – if players swing too hard, their ball will fly out of control. Be sure to take some practice swings before going for the pin. After reaching the green, line up putts carefully, practice the stroke and try to hole out. (1-4 players)
  • Wii Sports Bowling - Players raise the Wii Remote controller in their hand just like a bowling ball and then swing their arms to roll the ball. The speed of the swing and the angle at which they release the ball affects the ball’s spin, so it will take some practice to master control over the ball and knock down the pins. (1-4 players)
  • Wii Sports Boxing - Using the Nunchuk controller as one glove and the Wii Remote controller as the other, players dodge, weave and punch their opponents. Players hold their hands high to guard their faces or low to block their torsos. They punch high to hit their opponents’ faces or low to get under their guard for a body blow. Swing both arms left or right to sidestep oncoming blows and move into position for a devastating knockout. (1-2 players)
