Be a part of the action with a Wii
If you have come to love the interactive and easy-to-use features of handheld gaming devices such as the Nintendo 3DS, the Nintendo DSi and the PSP, then you will love the interactive gaming that the Wii can offer. While the Wii does come with a remote that can be used for traditional button-pushing game play, it is best used for games that involve real-life action. The Wii uses a remote sensor and gyroscope to record the movements you make and translate them to the screen. This means that your characters can wield a sword, hit a ball or dance their way to the end of the game along with your motions.
The Wii offers a user-friendly home screen that lets you choose from a variety of options above and beyond traditional game play. While you can certainly choose to pay your game, you can also customize your playing experience by creating your own Mii character that is featured in all Wii games. You can match your hair color and other features to look just like you, or you can create a character who is as wild and crazy as you are on the inside. Other options on the Wii home screen include a link to an online store where you can download new games, content and apps. You can also connect with other Wii players in the online Mii universe where you can socialize, chat and discuss game play. Downloadable apps include options for streaming movies and music through programs like Netflix and Hulu Plus. You can also just surf the internet if you like. This way, your gaming device does a lot more than simply play games.
Games for the Wii include your traditional action and first-person-shooter games, as well as more fun games that allow friends and family to get together and play. You can hold your remote like a traditional controller for the action games, or you can try to swing the remote and aim it like a real-life gun, sword or magic wand. The gyroscopes inside the Wii remotes record action in several different directions, so the characters on the screen will mimic your motions perfectly. Full and accurate movements help you get up off the couch and add a whole new level of fun to your gaming experience. If you like to do your fitness routine at home, you can also play games on the Wii designed to put you through any number of fitness programs tailored to your needs.
With the recent innovation of the Wii U console, you can now combine handheld gaming and console gaming into one seamless system. The Wii U console works in conjunction with your Wii console and your Wii remote to allow you to play games on multiple planes. If someone wants to interrupt to watch their favorite TV show, you can simply carry your Wii U into the next room to continue game play on a personal handheld device. While the original Wii system doesn't support the Wii U, buying a Wii U system is a fun and engaging upgrade from the Wii you already know and love.
Whether you want a Wii for the great graphics or the engaging games, Kmart can help you find one that is perfect for you. Shop for a traditional Wii console and great games such as Wii Sports and characters you know and love like Mario and Zelda. If you want to up the action, spring for a new Wii U console and explore "Nintendo Land" or "Super Mario Bros. U" for a refreshing new way to play games on your home gaming console.
