The Wii (pronounced "we") is the fifth Nintendo Home Console released by Nintendo. The Wii is the direct successor to the Nintendo GameCube. Nintendo states that its console targets a broader demographic than that of Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3, but it competes with both as part of the seventh generation of video game systems.
A distinguishing feature of the console is its wireless controller, the Wii Remote, which can be used as a handheld pointing device, and can detect acceleration and orientation in three dimensions. Another is WiiConnect24, which enables the console to receive messages and updates over the Internet while in standby mode. The Wii is backwards compatible with the GameCube controller and GameCube games.
