About Wii

Nintendo's next system, Wii, will feature a controller designed to be used with either one hand or two - a first in the video game industry. When picked up and pointed at the screen, the controller gives a lightning-quick element of interaction, sensing motion, depth, positioning and targeting dictated by movement of the controller itself.
