Advantages: Gets young and old active with video-gaming, good looking, hours of entertainment!
Disadvantages: Can occasionally overheat and crash if not cared for properly/old age.
The new Nintendo Wii hit the shelves just over 6 years ago and we haven't looked back!
With its slimline design, wireless controllers and sensory bar it took us all by storm, sending us into another world of gaming all together.
Featuring all of Nintendo's qualities but with the additional new age technology, they also brought our favourites with them. Mario and co have been brought kicking and screaming into the 2000's with a fresh new look.
Other than gaming, the Wii offers Channels, which comprise of downloadable channels from their online Wii shop. How could I forget to mention, the Wii comes with Wi-Fi capabilities so you can easily connect to the internet via your home network.
In the in built channel section there's the Mii channel, this is where you create your very own mini-you, this provides endless entertainment in itself, try creating some famous people too! You then can use your Mii for in game play.
Other channels worth mentioning:
*BBC iPlayer (downloadable from the Wii shop)
I would highly recommend the Nintendo Wii to anyone who is interested in keeping active and likes their gaming. Nintendo has brought gaming back to the masses!
Summary: A must buy for a family!
