Nintendo Wii is one of the best video game consoles on the market today, and it competes well with other brands such as Playstation and Xbox. Before we examine some of the details of Wii’s accessories and controllers, let’s take a look at what comes in the box. A Wii package includes a Wii console, remote controller, sports game disc, sensor bar, composite cable, and power cord.
The Wii remote controller is a revolutionary device in video games that offers wireless and free moving controls. One of the best known features of the Wii remote controller is the ability to capture precise movements of the controlling hand and apply it into the game. For example, hand motions such as swinging a tennis racket are precisely transmitted into the Wii Sports game. The Wii remote controller is compact and simple, with only a few buttons, and a directional pad on top.
One of the great features about the Wii remote controller is that it is expandable and compatible with other Wii accessories, such as the Nunchunk controller and the classic controller. Both of these two extra accessories can be connected to the remote controller’s external connector. The Wii Nunchunk is basically a joystick with two buttons, that works with the remote controller to provide the gamer with more versatile directional controls.
For only $19.99, the Wii Classic Controller is a truly special addition. First of all, it has the classic design that’s reminiscent of Nintendo’s early game consoles, such as the N64. The classic controller has two analog sticks, a four way pad on the left, four buttons on the right, and three selection buttons in the middle. The Wii Classic Controller Pro is a similar version, but has grip extensions on the sides and looks more modern. It is important to note that the Wii Classic Controller is specifically designed for Wii’s virtual console, which will be discussed in the next paragraph.
The Nintendo Wii can be connected to the internet to open up a whole world of fun. Once you connect the Wii console to the internet, you can access the Wii Shop Channel, which includes the Virtual Console. The Wii Virtual Console is your portal to a huge selection of classic games from multiple consoles such as Nintendo 64, NES, SNES, SEGA, and others. In order to play these classic games, you must first buy Wii points. Then, simply grab the Wii Classic Controller and happily relive those memories of Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda, or any other favorite games.
There are also several other versions of Wii classic controllers. For example, the Nintendo Classic Gamecube Controller can be used with the Wii Console when playing Gamecube discs. There is even a wireless version of this classic Gamecube controller. There is also the Wing Wired Classic Game Controller for Wii, which has unique appearance that’s different from the previously mentioned versions. Whatever your preference is, you are guaranteed to find the right Wii classic game controller to suit your gaming style and comfort.
