The Nintendo Wii is a seventh-generation home console that was released in 2006 by Nintendo. It is a direct competitor to the Sony Playstation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360, though the system focuses on different types of gaming mechanics and features.  The Nintendo Wii eliminated top-of-the-range graphics in favour of a user-friendly interface and unique control scheme – the Wii controller. The Wii’s controller in-cooperates various motion-sensing components such as accelerometers which detect the players movements. The player can swing the remote back and forth, side-to-side, up and down, and can perform various gestures whilst holding the remote.  This will then be replicated on screen by the video game. In essence, the Wii allows you to be the character in the game – slash with your sword in a war game, swing with your bat in a sports game, or whack with your hammer in a whack-a-mole game.
