Outline

Wii is a game console that brings families together in the living room and puts a smile on everyone's face. It is a console that inspires communication. Players wield an entirely new controller, the Wii Remote, in intuitive ways. In this, the developers sought a controller that both experienced gamers and people never before interested in games could use. Features of the console include WiiConnect24, for a new experience every day (through a constant Internet connection maintained in standby mode); Wii Channel, for non-game content useful in everyday situations; and the Wii Virtual Console, which, through the Wii Shop Channel, enables users to purchase games they enjoyed on previous consoles, as emulated on the Wii.
