Nintendo Wii arrived on November 19, 2006 with Xbox360 already launched and PlayStation 3, the HD god of new age gaming, ready to take over the world. Behind all the hype about two new systems that would take HD (high-definition) gaming to new heights, it was hard to hear Nintendo’s muffled voice, but it wouldn’t be long before Nintendo’s cry for innovative new games would change the world. HD gaming chatter in a subtle whisper.
Nintendo knew that its power was in innovation. Nintendo wanted to take the entire gaming experience to new levels. The Nintendo Wii changed the entire perspective of the gaming world. Just before the holidays, Nintendo placed game stations or “Wii Stations” in hundreds, if not thousands, of shopping malls across the country to advertise the Wii’s capabilities. Soon after, the Wii virus spread. Young and old alike raved about the fun and innovation that the Nintendo Wii brought to market. I remember standing in the center of my local mall watching all generations grab the Nintendo Wii remote called the Wiimote. I learned tons of information while watching the fun and game testing myself, thankfully there was a Nintendo representative to educate and educate me on the Nintendo Wii. The Wiimote is a wireless controller containing motion sensors that literally takes interactivity to new levels. Have you ever played air guitar? Well, imagine playing baseball, tennis or bowling, you can do all of this with the wiimote and a game called Wii Sports. Wii Sports and many other games use motion sensor technology to put you in the game and take interactive play to new levels. The Nintendo Wii will also allow four controllers to connect wirelessly to the board simultaneously so you and your friends can play together. As I watched everyone at my local mall spend their free time with the system. I knew that the Nintendo Wii would change the entire perspective of the video game world.
I realized that for many years consumers young and old have been afraid to enter the world of console gaming at home due to the difficult controls and many buttons now found on most video game console controllers. . Nintendo knew that to succeed with the competition from HD games. They had to make the games more interactive, easier and more fun. But the Wii’s capabilities didn’t stop her. Nintendo stayed true to its fans for the long haul. With the Nintendo Wii you can download your favorite classic titles (via the Internet) to your Nintendo Wii. So yes, you can play Super Mario Brothers like you used to when you were a kid. There are many original Nintendo titles that can be downloaded from an online marketplace that can be accessed through your Nintendo Wii.
Overall, I’m very impressed and happy that I can now interact with video games like never before. In fact, I can play video games with my mother and father, who until now would not dare to touch a video game controller. The Nintendo Wii has provided an experience for experienced and inexperienced gamers that will not be easy to copy. Nintendo has been the most innovative gaming company the world has ever known. When I found out that the Nintendo Wii was only $250 dollars, it sent me through the roof. Not only is the price great, but the experiences I’ll have playing with my Nintendo Wii will be even better.
