Nintendo's Wii

History behind the Wii

In 2001, Nintendo, one of the biggest gaming companies, invented the Wii, and planned to release it in 2006. In 2006, before the Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, arrived, Nintendo named the system, Revolution, so it can keeps its identity before the event arrives. On November 19th of 2006, Nintendo released the Wii in North America. Today, it is one of the 7th generation consoles, along with Sony's Playstation 3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360. It is also Nintendo's first wireless console!
