The Wii (pronounced "we") is a video game console made by Nintendo.[13] It first came out on November 19, 2006, in North America. It plays video games made for the Wii and the Nintendo GameCube.[13] It was succeeded by the Wii U in 2012.

Nintendo, the company that made the Wii, says they want to focus more on new ways to play games. The Wii uses a controller, called the Wii Remote, that is very different from the controllers of other video game consoles. It can be held with just one hand, and uses technology that senses the player's movements.

By making the Wii, Nintendo says they are trying to change the way video games are looked at and played. The Wii was made for all people of any age or interest. By making it easier to play, Nintendo thinks that they can get people who do not normally play games to start playing. Because of this, more people who have been playing video games for a long time (that means that they are "hardcore") do not like the Wii.
