The Wii is Nintendo's fifth home game console and the direct successor to the GameCube. It was released in 2006 and is considered a "seventh generation" console, competing against Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3. As of the beginning of 2009, the Wii was the leader in home console sales. Its defining feature is the Wii Remote, or "Wiimote," a motion-sensing wireless controller that responds to the physical movements of the player. This revolutionary controller acts as the baseball bat while you swing for the fence or the bowling ball as you go for the strike. The Wii is also famous for engaging a wider demographic of players than is traditional, with games such as Wii Sports and Wii Fit appealing to older and younger generations alike. The game We Ski & Snowboard, released in 2008, is a sports simulation that makes use of the Wii Balance Board.
