The Wii has a strange name. It is also a very different type gaming device. It makes you get up and get physically involved with the game. It is not as powerful as its competitors. The graphics are not as good as those of its competitors. Yet, it has become wildly popular. We decided to investigate what makes this gaming device so appealing.
The Wii comes in an unassuming white and blue box as shown in Figure 1.
Figure 2 shows some of the Wii box contents which include: the Wii console, the console stand, the sensor bar, the Wii remote (also called the WiiMote) a Wii Remote jacket, and the Wii nunchuk. Also included (not shown) is a power cord, an operations manual, and a standard composite cable for hooking the Wii up to the television. The Wii Sports disk, shown in Figure3, is also included and provides a good set of games to get you started on the Wii.
