Nintendo Wii

Nintendo WiiNintendo Wii (code named Revolution) is the next video game console form Nintendo and the successor to the Nintendo GameCube. In contrast to the PS3 and Xbox 360, the Nintendo Wii don’t have focus on raw system power and next-gen graphics, as Nintendo with the Nintendo Wii will be taking a different approach to the market by changing the way people play games. This doesn’t mean that the games will look bad by any means, but by dropping the HD feature and using less powerful hardware, Nintendo will be able to offer their console to the consumer for much less than Microsoft and Sony can.

The most interesting feature with the new console is the controller which can sense motion, opening up a whole new world for both developers and gamers. The console's controller can detect its exact location and orientation in 3D space, a feature not available on any other mainstream console.

Another anticipated features of the new Nintendo Wii is its game download service, dubbed the "Virtual Console. Using this Virtual Console service, users will have the ability to download and play many or all Nintendo-produced NES/Famicom, SNES/Super Famicom, and N64 games for a small fee. Nintendo has also announced that games developed for the Sega Genesis and TurboGrafx 16 consoles will be offered via the Virtual Console download service.
