The Wii is a home video game console released by Nintendo on November 19, 2006.
As a seventh-generation console, the Wii primarily competes with Microsoft's
Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3. Nintendo states that its console targets a
broader demographic than that of the two others. As of June 2010, the Wii
leads the generation over the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in worldwide sales,
and in December 2009 broke the record for best-selling console in a single month
in the United States.
A distinguishing feature of the console is its wireless controller, the Wii Remote,
which can be used as a handheld pointing device and detects movement in three
dimensions. Another distinctive feature of the console is WiiConnect24, which
enables it to receive messages and updates over the Internet while in standby mode.
