- The Console -


With a small and sexy design, Wii promises to be the funnest video game console in the market, with the size of 3 DVD cases stack together, this console can play Wii discs and Gamecube Minidiscs for full backwards compatiblity.

The Wii also has several channels for multiple purposes, watching photographs in a simple, cool way, the ability to stay conected to the internet and get demos and updates for your games, buy and download cheap classic games like The Legend Of Zelda, Super Mario World or even Sonic The Hedgehog.

There is also a cool feature called Virtual Console, Virtual Console is the name of a new video game download service offered by Nintendo, accessible to users of the company's upcoming console, the Wii. Described by Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata as “the video game version of Apple’s iTunes Store”,[1] the service will feature classic titles from past Nintendo consoles (from the NES to the N64) as well as from formerly competing systems, such as the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16, Commodore 64 and MSX. Virtual Console may also offer new and original content from independent developers. Support from Japanese Third Parties includes most of the major companies in Japan. Atlus, Namco Bandai, Banpresto, Capcom, Chunsoft, D4 Enterprise, Enterbrain, HAL Laboratory, Irem, Jaleco, KEMCO, Koei, Konami, NCS Masaya, Netfarm, Paon, Rocket Company, Square Enix, Sunsoft, Taito, Takara TOMY and Tecmo all join Sega and Hudson Soft as confirmed supporters.

The Wii doesnt offer incredibly graphics like its competitors, the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, but it does offer something that has never been done on a console before, motion sensing with an evolved controller which promises better gameplay, more fun and for less money, the Wii will retail for $250 in the US and a bundled game.

Not only that but it also provides with free WiFi that you will get as you get your Wii, allowing you to play games online with your friends or with people all over the world.

The Wii will come out in stores on november 19th in the US, being followed by a worldwide launch 2 weeks later.

- The Wii Remote -


Whats so special about the Wii? Definitely its controller, full motion sensing, the controller divides itself into 2, the main Wiimote and the nunchuck attachment, both can sense movement, therefor, it provides you with much more posibilities than any regular console, the Wii can act as your sword like in Red Steel, as your tennis racket like in Wii Sports, as your gun like in Metroid Prime 3, or simply it can be an addition the the gameplay mechanics brining much more posibilities like in Super Mario Galaxy or Splinter Cell: Double Agent.

- The Games -

In my opinion, whenever your buying a video game console, one of the most important factors should be the game library, Nintendo consoles perhaps have been known for only having notable first party games, or kiddy games, or not enough games, after you see this list, you will notice how Wii offers oposite.

This are my most awaited Wii games:

Red Steel
Wii Exclusive
Developer: Ubisoft Release date:
Wii launch Genre: First Person Shooter

Official Trailer 3

Did you think that consoles first person shooters were bad and not worth it (besides Halo I mean)?, with the Wii controller that may change, with the Wii controller acting as your gun, this first person shooter set in Japan deals with the war of the japanese mafias, Red Steel also deals with katanas, as you will have to use yours to fight with the Yakuza leaders.

This game tries to separate from generic first person shooter by offering many great features such as a deep katana fighting, honor system, where your fighting to get support from japanese mafias, not just randomly kill everyone. With an awesome AI, great music, great gameplay, this game promises a lot.

Splinter Cell: Double Agent
Developer: Ubisoft Release date:
Wii launch Genre: Stealth


Control agent Sam Fisher as he struggles with the most dificult missions of his career, use the Wiimote to execute diferent actions and help him in this stealth game. SC: Double Agent features a deep storyline where you must choose who to be, as you finish missions, as a double agent.

Sadness Wii exclusive
Developer: Nibris Release date:
TBA 2007 Genre: Survival horror


Probably one of the most innovative upcoming games, or at least one which promises to be, Sadness is a Wii exclusive game which deals with the slavic mythology, use the Wiimote intuitively, this game is set to scare you.

According to an interview, the game is meant to scare the player by atmosphere and not by bloodlust or violence. Various methods of playing include slitting the throat of enemies with glass or throwing a rope over a wall using the similar motion with the freehand controller.

It was also said by the developer Nibris that the game will have a special way to save your progress. This will happen automatically, at specific moments unknown to the players so it can keep the feeling of reality. Visually the game is to be a black and white stylized gothic horror.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Nintendo exclusive
Release date: Wii launch
Developer: Nintendo
Genre: Action Adventure

Its The Legend of Zelda, its meant to be awesome, but this isnt any Zelda, its the best Zelda game ever created. Ride a dragon, turn into a wolf, use the Wiimote as a sword, or as a rod, use it for aiming your bow or other items, Nintendo promises that this game will even be better than the classic Ocarina of Time, with all the features above plus a game which will take around 70 - 100 hours to complete.

It will also be the darkest Zelda ever, Nintendo says it expects a T rating.
