Pros: games for all ages and cheap.
Cons: dated graphics but not bad at all really.
The Nintendo Wii is the cheapest console in the current console war. Compared to the PS3 and the Xbox360 the Wii is not the strongest or technically advanced system. For the price of $250 its the most affordable system.
Some of the best features on the wii are, the wii remote which is wireless and it uses motion to control the character. It has a built in sd memory card reader so you can listen to your mp3 music while playing some games and you can view your pictures from your digital camera on your tv. It has a built in wireless card so you can play online without the use of a ether cable.
Some of the features of the online part of the Nintendo Wii are, a voting channel where you can vote on certain questions, and see what other people in the country and the world think about it. There is a virtual console where via wii points, which you can purchase on the wii shop channel or at your local retailer, you can download various classic games from past consoles (i.e. nes, snes, sega genesis, and others.)
The graphics on the wii are what you would expect out of a PS2, but for nearly $200 less then the competition what can you expect. In short this is a great system for the money and for all ages. And it won't hurt you where it counts most, that is if you are lucky enough to find one. The best part of all, especially for parents, is no more couch potato kids. This system gets them off the couch and gives them a work out.
