Nintendo Wii. Sixth game console created by Nintendo in collaboration with ATI and IBM. It is the direct successor to the Nintendo Game Cube. It currently competes with Microsoft and Sony video consoles.

When Nintendo GameCube started to hit the market, Nintendo engineers and designers were already working on a new revolutionary console, but it wasn't until two years later that they got together to develop this concept in depth. At E3, Electronic Entertainment Expo, in the 2005 edition in Los Angeles, the console was presented although the control was not presented due to technical problems.

The console has a processor created by IBM with the name of IBM Broadway, the graphics processor was left in the hands of ATI who designed a version called Hollywood specifically for the console. It also has two USB 2.0 ports, a connector for SD Card, a sensor bar, two ports for memory cards and two ports for GameCube memory expansion. It has Wi-Fi technology for network connection. Dolby Pro Logic II compatible audio.

Wii has a large number of accessories such as: controllers, pistols, steering wheels, tennis rackets, network adapters, audio and video cables, Wii Zapper that turns the controller into a pistol or crossbow. At E3 in its 2007 edition they presented the Wii Balance Board, which is an accessory that helps people to exercise such as aerobics, yoga, muscle stretching, and is the most successful.
