Over time, the evolution of video game accessories has taken gaming to new entertainment heights. Nintendo’s new gaming platform is no different and is even one step ahead of its competitors in terms of accessories. You might be wondering how Nintendo created such an innovative device. With the Nintendo Wii console, Nintendo will be able to appeal to both long-time Nintendo fans and non-gamers alike due to the fact that you can simply pick it up and play.
The Nintendo Wii has a set of accessories designed to enhance your gaming experience beyond simply pressing buttons. Some of these great accessories are as follows:
The Wiimote is a small and lightweight remote control device. It works wirelessly by using a short-range Bluetooth system. The Wiimote is motion sensitive, allowing users to interact with their games. Some games manage to do this in a very smooth and fluid way, but other games feel a bit awkward and don’t register certain movements. This new way of playing will open the doors for designers and give them more control over how the game is made. One “problem” with this new way of playing is the number of reports of people accidentally tossing their Wiimote while swinging. Nintendo is rectifying this by distributing free “gloves” that will give users a little more grip.
The Nunchuk is an analog controller that connects to the Wiimote. It has an analog stick along with buttons to give the player even more control. It also has a motion sensor and is used in games like Wii Boxing, Zelda: Twilight Princess, and Red Steel.
The classic Nintendo controller is a more traditional controller that connects to the Wiimote. It is mainly used to play virtual console games. You can also use a GameCube controller to play virtual console games.
Recently, Nintendo has released information about the upcoming Wii Light pistol. The light gun seems to stick to the bottom of the Wiimote to give you the feeling of holding a gun. This could definitely lead to some fun games and a new way to play.
It’s no lie, the Nintendo Wii lacks the graphics department with games that visually look no better than GameCube games. The reason they are number one right now is because of the level of innovation involved with some of these amazing games.
Only time will tell what exciting new accessories the Nintendo Wii has in store!
