Now that the Nintendo Wii is easily available, there is no need to conjecture about it's speed and memory. It has the Broadway processor which was developed jointly with IBM, based on IBM's PowerPC-based processor. It uses a DVD drive; however, the drive cannot be used for running movies, only for Nintendo games. You can now play with the Wii and find out exactly what are it's main highlights. First of all, the Wii is fairly easy to set up.
The console's design and user manual make it clear that this is an advanced product from a company that has the background in creating consumer goods. The Nintendo Wii has completely altered the way gaming controllers are made. The Wii's controller looks more like a TV remote control than a game controller. It has built-in motion sensors so, for example, to swing a tennis racket, you simply move your hand as though you were really swinging a racket. Also, the controllers provide the players with responses at various times such as they vibrate when you point them at clickable buttons, or they produce a sound when two players are playing bowls.
The Nintendo Wii system is compatible with Gamecube games as well as the Gamecube controller even though the two systems use very dissimilar controllers. The Wii also has the ability to download games from the original Nintendo (NES), Super Nintendo (SNES), and the Nintendo 64. Pricewise, the Nintendo Wii is cheaper than it's two main competitors, the Xbox 360 and the PS3.
