Wii console!

The Wii (pronounced as the pronoun "we") is a video game console released by Nintendo. The console was previously known by its project code name of Revolution, and is the successor to the Nintendo GameCube . Although Nintendo states that its console targets a broader demographic than that of Microsoft 's Xbox 360 and Sony 's PlayStation 3, as part of the seventh generation of gaming consoles it competes with the other two on some levels.

The Mario Kart Wii is one of the best games for the Wii console. There are plenty of other Wii games that are truly popular among gamers. Wii is unarguably one of the top three gaming consoles in the market together with the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360. The Nintendo Wii has already formed a wide fan base and game console owners. What makes this console special and different among the others, is that it makes the gamer active. It therefore promotes exercise in contrast to other gaming consoles that makes its gamers passive for hours.

A distinguishing feature of the console is its wireless controller , the Wii Remote , which can be used as a handheld pointing device and can detect motion and rotation in three dimensions . Notable among the console's internal features is WiiConnect24 , which enables it to receive messages and updates over the Internet while consuming very little electrical power.

Nintendo first mentioned the console in the 2004 E3 press conference and later unveiled the system at the 2005 E3. Satoru Iwata revealed a prototype of the controller at the September 2005 Tokyo Game Show . In the 2006 E3, it won the first of several awards.
