Wii meaning

Wii is defined as product name developed by the Japanese company Nintendo for a video game console. "Wii" doesn't really have any meaning in Japanese. The two lower case “i” letters are meant to symbolize two people, playing side-by-side.

An example of Wii is the video game Wii Fit.

A popular video game console from Nintendo (www.nintendo.com) introduced in 2006. Pronounced "wee," it runs Wii and GameCube software and features a wireless motion sensing controller that looks like a TV remote rather than a game controller. After a sensor bar is placed in front of the screen to orient the Bluetooth-based remote via infrared signals, the unit is strapped to the wrist and swung like a tennis racket, golf club or other sports equipment. Dubbed the "Wiimote," its internal accelerometers sense the motion on three axes, and up to four players can have their own controller. The speaker built into the device sounds a "thwack" when hitting the ball.Users were exuberant from the start. With thousands of consoles sold immediately, players found their wrist straps breaking and controllers flying across the room. Nintendo immediately improved the strap and offered everyone a replacement.Nanchuk and ClassicWhile using the Wii Remote to hit the ball, a secondary "Nanchuk" unit, also motion sensitive, is used to move the gamer's character on screen. Named after the Chinese nunchaku, a weapon made of two sticks chained together, the Nanchuk plugs into the Wii Remote. For traditional games, a "Classic" controller more familiar to gamers can be used. See Wiinjuries and Wii U.
