It was six years ago when Nintendo revolutionized the video game console with the Wii, the first video game system to allow control by body movement versus the traditional limitation of the handheld controller.
I first saw one at a buddy’s house and I have to admit it was pretty slick. At the time, it was the only system to incorporate the full body motion, so it had an edge, even though it was lacking in other areas such as resolution, HD compatibility, and overall game play (the graphics were still geared more toward ‘Mario’ and not your hi-resolution games).
Because Nintendo had a hold on this segment of the market, they controlled it and it showed, with the product constantly being back ordered for years. Yes, multiple holiday seasons came and went with Nintendo Wii nowhere to be found.
