As with every console, much of the buzz about Wii revolves around its specs. The Wii boasts 512 MB of internal flash memory, two USB 2.0 ports, and a slot for SD memory expansion. The system's technological heart -- a processing chip developed with IBM and code-named "Broadway" and a graphics chipset from ATI code-named "Hollywood" -- deliver stunning performance. And instead of a tray, Wii uses a single, self-loading media bay that plays both 12-centimeter optical discs used for the new system, as well as Nintendo GameCube discs. An additional, and often overlooked, benefit of the Wii is that it uses a fraction of the power of other current gaming consoles on the market, saving energy and money both when it is on and off.
Wii Channels and functionality fit for the whole family, including Neflix streaming, now without a disc.
Wii is all about the motion controlled freedom and flexibility, and the new Wii Remote Plus Controller, included in this bundle in a matching red color scheme, is the new standard controller for the Wii gaming system. Combining the original accelerometer enabled motion-sensing abilities of the original iconic Wii Remote controller with with the expanded capabilities that were once only accessible through the Wii MotionPlus accessory, the compact Wii Remote Plus controller offers players precision motion controls all in one unit. This new red console release will continue to support all previous Wii controller configurations. This console bundle also includes a matching red Wii Nunchuk, which adds an analog thumbstick and trigger buttons. Like all Wii console releases, the system allows for up to four controllers to be linked at a time and utilizes standard Bluetooth wireless technology.
