the wii revolution

Nintendo has revolutionized the way that video games are played on home consoles with Wii. Using Wii accessories like the Wii Remote, Nunchuk, and Wii Balance Board, the games are played in a whole new way instead of with a directional pad and buttons exclusively.

Some Wii games require players to actual use more than just their thumbs to play. Wii Fit, the fifth bestselling video game in history, utilizes the Wii Balance Board where the player stands on the board shifting his weight and positioning his feet to send commands to the game. Wii has separated itself from the competition by focusing on interactivity using a player’s whole body instead of super detailed graphics and over-the-top gameplay.
