Nintendo Wii

  1. 1. Nintendo Wii Beth Burke
  2. 2. What is the Nintendo Wii? <ul><li>Nintendo's Wii video game system (pronounced &quot;we&quot;) brings people of all ages and video game experience together to play. </li></ul><ul><li>This simple yet ground breaking idea is expressed not only though the system's evocative name, which is easily pronounced in a variety of languages, and suggests two players side by side, but also through its innovative list of features and extensive list of playable titles. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Features <ul><li>Plays two disc formats in a single, </li></ul><ul><li>self-loading media bay </li></ul><ul><li>Features a processing chip from IBM and a graphics chip from ATI </li></ul><ul><li>Backwards compatible with all Nintendo GameCube games and most peripherals </li></ul><ul><li>Built-in Wi-Fi access for easy connection to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection gaming service </li></ul>
  4. 4. A Little Box W/ Plenty of Power <ul><li>As with every console, much of the buzz surrounds the specs. </li></ul><ul><li>The Wii boasts 512 MB of internal flash memory, two USB 2.0 ports, and a slot for SD memory expansion. </li></ul><ul><li>The system’s technological heart -- a processing chip developed with IBM and code-named &quot;Broadway&quot; and a graphics chipset from ATI code-named &quot;Hollywood&quot; -- deliver stunning performance. </li></ul><ul><li>Instead of a tray, Wii uses a single, self-loading media bay that plays both 12-centimeter optical discs used for the new system, as well as Nintendo GameCube disk. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Revolutionary Control <ul><li>No bigger than a small traditional remote control, the wireless Wii Remote is a truly multi functional device. </li></ul><ul><li>The magic of the Wii Remote's design lies within; acellerometers inside the controller measure movement in all directions and at all speeds. </li></ul><ul><li>In a tennis game, it serves as your racket as you swing away. In driving games it serves as a steering wheel, allowing you to swerve to avoid obstacles or pickup power-ups. In first-person shooters, it acts as a firearm that you can point directly at an on-screen enemy. </li></ul><ul><li>The controller also has a force feedback &quot;Rumble&quot; feature and an expansion port for use with accessories, such as the Nunchuck, which adds an analog thumbstick and trigger buttons. </li></ul><ul><li>The system allows for up to four controllers to be linked at a time and utilizes standard Bluetooth wireless technology. For those who prefer the feel of a traditional controller an adapter is available that fits over the Wii's remote. </li></ul>
