Nintendo has brought another gaming innovation out to the market. Nintendo, the oldest multinational company from Kyoto, Japan, is among the industry’s most powerful video game producing company.

Since the late 70s, it has come to produce over 2 billion video games already.
Among the video game systems that stirred the interests of the gaming public are the Color TV Game, Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES), Virtual Boy, the Nintendo 64, Nintendo GameCube and the most recent Wii and its Wii consoles.

The Wii Console and Its Features
Wii Consoles are home video games released by Nintendo in 2006. It is a seventh generation game console that was meant to compete with Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Sony Playstation 3. The Wii console is featured with a wireless Wii Remote controller, which detects movements in three dimensions. It can also be used as a handheld pointing device. It also has a WiiConnect24 that receives messages and updates from the Internet even when the Wii console is in its standby mode.
The Wii Sports Sequel
From the Wii Sports that has just recently been out in the market comes the Wii Sports Resort. It uses Wii Motion Plus to give the players a most realistic gaming experience. To give the player a deeper sense of immersion, you just have to plug the Wii Sports Resort into the base of the Wii remote control together with its sensor bar and accelerometer. As fun as it is to play, it is also fun to just watch the players. It is easy to learn and people can easily pick up the game of any Wii Consoles.
Wii is surely loaded with fun that not only kids get to enjoy but even adults. Rather than go and play outside, playing your favorite sport with Wii Consoles never has to be an outdoor activity. Wii Sports Resort for Wii Consoles, which has been set to be released in 2009, has already lots of followers eager to play the ongoing series of sports that are to be loaded in their Wii Consoles. The games in the Wii Sports Resort have a beach resort setting and are compatible with the Wii Motion Plus. The new sports game for Wii has to be bundled with a Wii Motion Plus device and the Wii Remote Jacket but are sold separately though. The games that have already been developed for the Wii Sports Resort are Jet Skiing, Kendo, and Frisbee. There are still seven games that have to be filled in to complete ten games in the final package.
