Wii would like to play

By: Walkin the Plank

       Did you know why the Wii was invented? Or why people love it so much? Well my Wii report could tell you stuff that you may not know about the Wii. So if you keep on reading you could learn a lot about the Wii.

Why was the Wii invented?

       Well the Wii was invented because they knew that it would be a GREAT hit. According to Wikianswers.com “ They made the Wii because they wanted to make a video game system that at least let’s you get a little exercise.” It does but I have to say, depends on what games you are playing! But I do think that’s cool how they did that. Also like what they said its not have you be a couch potato. (like this picture)

History

                Let’s start with, why did they nickname the wii remote “wiimote?” I think that this is really cool!  “There was this person who started nicknaming the wii remote the “wiimote” so now the nickname for the wii remote is the “wiimote.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              (HowStuffWorks.com) I think that is really cool how just because of one person it made it worldwide so now it’s nickname is “wiimote.”

         Let’s next start with, why did a Texas-based company                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           called LoneStar sue Nintendo? According to www.wikipeida.com “A Texas-based company called Lonestar Inventions has also sued Nintendo, claiming that the company copied one of Lonestar's patented capacitor designs and used it in the Wii console.”. I think that it is really weird because maybe Nintendo did not copy them and they are just saying that.

        Third, let’s start with how many Wiis were sold worldwide?  According to www.wikipeida.com “the Wii sold more units in the United States than the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 combined in the first half of 2007.” WOW! That’s a lot and I thought that Xbox 360 sold a lot!

          Do you know why they came up with the name Wii?

 If you remember, about 2 years ago, they unveiled the design for the wii and it was called revolution, but then they changed the name to wii.” I have to say that it think it is really cool (if that it true.) But if that is true I do think that it is really cool how I always thought that its was called wii but I guess not.  According to my friend, the called it wii so that other countries would understand it.  Like “we” in America means a bunch of people. 

         Do you know if they are ever going to make new colors for the Wii? According to www.wikipedida.com there was this guy who sent a letter to Nintendo and said “can you make more colors of the wii?” So because of that gut there are going to be more colors of the Wii on day.
