If there's one console manufacturer that marches to the beat of a different drummer, it has to be Nintendo. The originator of the modern console-gaming era has been a traditional player in every single console generation

Instead of putting together an expensive box with impressive hardware specifications like the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, Nintendo decided to set its Wii system apart by offering innovative gameplay with a new motion-sensitive controller. The Wii's gyroscope controller will take users away from the gamepad interface and make game control more intuitive. For instance, we're used to pressing buttons in a certain sequence to cast a line in a fishing game, but on the Wii, expect to pull the controller back and then whip it forward in a real casting motion to get that line out. It has an IBM processor and an ATI graphics chip. It's rumored to be two to three times as powerful as the GameCube. The Wii will also be able to play GameCube games, and Nintendo will release a Wii edition of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess with special controller support.

Virtual Console
Wii will have downloadable access to 20 years of fanfavourite titles originally released for Nintendo 64, the Super Nintendo entertainment system (SNES) and even the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) . the virtual console also will feature a best of selection from Sega Genesis titles and games from the Turbofax console . it will also be home to new games conceived by indie developers whose creativity is larger than their budgets .

The Specs
Wii boasts 512 megabytes of internal flash memory, two USB 2.0 ports and built in WiFi capability. A bay for an SD memory card will let players expand the internal flash memory . Design was optimized with state of the art processing technologies that minimize power consumption , keep the console compact and enable the "sleepless " Wiiconnect24 mode

Wii can communicate with the internet even when the power is turned off. This WiiConnect24 service delivers a new surprise or game update , even if users do not play with Wii. Users can connet wirelessly using IEEE 802.11B/G or with a USB 2.0 LAN adaptor. Wii also can communicate wirelessly with Nintendo DS .

The Controller
Nintendo chose to design the new controller the way it did. The controller had to meet four major requirements for Nintendo: It had to have wireless connectivity, approachability, and sophistication, and it had to be revolutionary.

The top half of the Wii controller features a directional pad and a single, oversized A button. If you hold the controller like a remote, your thumb will have immediate access to the D pad and the A button. The underside of the controller has a B button that functions like a trigger button. The controller features select, home, and start buttons lined up horizontally halfway down the controller, and the bottom half of the controller has two buttons stacked vertically. We've seen some controllers that have the buttons labeled as A and B, but other controllers have them labeled as 1 and 2. In any case, if you hold the controller sideways, you'll have two horizontal buttons for classic Nintendo gaming. The bottom of the controller has an attachment port for peripherals, should a game require more buttons

A variety of potential game-usage scenarios were shown at TGS. One involves a fishing game, but instead of pushing a button or moving an analog stick, with the new Wii controller you could cast a line by flicking your wrist. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess will have the first implementation of real-world Wii fishing, complete with casting and reeling. Basic games, such as air hockey, can get a boost from the new controller design as well. The built-in sensor can detect depth as well as lateral movement, which lets you push the puck from side to side and into and away from the screen in one natural movement.


The Console come complete with the launch title Wii Sports. Enjoy Golf, Tennis, baseball all with the new wireless controller acting as the equipment with all simple and colorful visuals, with almost abstract-looking characters that look something like Playmobil people

It seems as though everybody has had their fill of Nintendo Wii. Obviously Playstation 3 and XBox 360 must be more popular! And to think in December people scrambling to pay £350 for one!

Yeah and this is RRP can't vote hot due to that, and there are plenty around through usual channels at RRP

Great that there in stock but gotta vote cold. I paid the same as this is over a year ago.

Now if you can get a wii + a discounted game then that gets a vote hot, like it should be!

Now to me the cold vote doesn't make sense. The price of the Wii hasn't dropped since it was released. Why are people suddenly expecting their to be lots of things thrown in??
Personally, I don't really care as I got one last year, but for this to be cold, when 2 months ago people would have been biting their hands off, seems a bit strange.

a bit harsh on us newbies
