What’s a “Wii”?

The Wii (pronounced “we”) is Nintendo’s 7th generation (2006) video gaming console. It was previously codenamed “revolution.” The name was changed to Wii on April 27th 2006.

Why call it “Wii”?

Quote: “Wii sounds like 'we', which emphasizes that the console is for everyone. Wii can easily be remembered by people around the world, no matter what language they speak. No confusion. No need to abbreviate. Just Wii.”

Price?

United States USD $249.99
Canada CAD $279.95
Mexico MXN $4,499
Colombia COP $1,100,000
Peru PENS/.1,499
Chile CLP $259,
Japan JP ¥25,000
Australia AUD $399.95
New Zealand NZD $499.90
Italy €249
Eurozone €249
United Kingdom GB £179
Denmark DKK 2200
Norway NOK 2395
Finland €269.90

What do I get when I buy it?

Wii System
Wii Stand
1 Wii Remote
1 Nunchuck
Sensor Bar
Sensor Stand
Wii Sports Game
2 AA batteries
Composite (red/white/yellow) cables
Power cord
512MB internal flash memory

What are the system specifications?

512MBs internal flash memory
Built-in 802.11b/g Wi-Fi capability
One SD memory card bay
AV multi-port: S-video, composite, component Analog (left/right) audio / DPLII
Four GameCube controller ports
Two GameCube Memory Pak slots
Two USB 2.0 ports
Compatible with up to four wireless Wii-motes
Self-loading media drive
Accepts 12cm Wii and 8cm GCN discs

Specs. that are often mistaken as fact:

729 MHz IBM PowerPC "Broadway" CPU
243 MHz ATI "Hollywood" GPU
24MBs "main" 1T-SRAM
64MBs other 1T-SRAM
3MBs texture memory on GPU

The last set are mere rumors. Nintendo has not disclosed the exact system specs yet. They simply leave it at: “About 2x more powerful then the Gamecube.”

What are the exact dimensions of the Wii?

157mm x 215.4mm x 44mm. The size comparison chart above is outdated, but very close. I used it mainly as a rough comparison to the 360/PS3/GC/PS2/Xbox.

How do I save games?

As listed above, the Wii comes with 512 MB internal flash memory which functions like a hard drive. It will be used for game saves, VC downloads, and just about anything else.

If you need more space, you can expand the memory via SD cards.

What kind of SD cards can I use with the Wii?

Standard SD cards, MiniSD cards, and MicroSD cards. You do NOT need the Nintendo brand SD cards.
Memory Sticks (like the PSP uses) or any other form of flash memory will not work.

What’s the maximum size SD card I can use?

Currently, only up to 2 gig. This could change through future firmware updates though.

What about external hard drives?

Not at this time. Nintendo has said the USB ports cannot be used for external hard drives. This could change via a firmware update through wiiconnect24 though.

Can the Wii play DVD movies?

No. The wii does not feature DVD playback.

How much will Wii accessories/games cost?

United States
Wii remote $39.99
Nunchuk $19.99
Classic controller $19.99
Component cables $29.99
First party games $49.99 or less

Canada
Wii remote $44.99
Nunchuk $24.99
Classic controller $24.99
Component cables $34.99 (estimate)
First party games $54.99 (estimate)

United Kingdom
Wii remote £29.99
Nunchuk £14.99
Classic controller £14.99
First party games £44.99 (estimate)

What’s a “component cable”?

Red/blue/green/white/yellow, as opposed to red/white/yellow. Component cables allow the Wii to display in 480p, which is vital if you have an HDTV. Without component cables, the Wii will look terrible on an HDTV.

If you don’t have an HDTV though, you don’t need to worry about component cables. However, if your TV has component input (look for Red/blue/green colored holes), component cables will give you a slightly better picture.

Can I use the GC/SNES/N64 component/RF cable instead of having to buy the Wiis?

No. The Wii has a different AV port then all other Nintendo consoles.

Does the Wii display in HD?

No. The Wiis maximum resolution is 480p. Which is EDTV (Enhanced Definition).

Will there be parental controls?

Yes. In the Wii channels interface, you can select what rating of games can be played on that system.

What’s up with that blue light I’ve seen?

Taken from nintendo.com:

The Disc slot light illuminates briefly when:
The Wii console is turned on
A Game Disc is inserted
WiiConnect 24 has received new data, such as messages, and you have selected "Bright" or "Dim" in the "Slot Illumination" settings for WiiConnect24. The light will blink until the Wii Console is turned on.
The Disc slot light does not stay illuminated during game play or using other features of the Wii console.

Can the Wii be stood vertical/horizontal?

Either or. The Wii comes with a stand to set it up vertically, or you can choose to lay it horizontal.

How do I load the discs?

It’s exactly like a car CD player. You put the disc part-way in the slot and the drive will grab it and pull it in. If you have the Wii standing vertical, the label on the CD should face to the right. If you have it sitting horizontal, the label on the disc should face up.

HELP! The red light in the power button now is yellow!!11

This is normal and simply means Wiiconnect24 is on.
Red light: Wii is off, Wiiconnect24 is off.
Yellow light: Wii is off, Wiiconnect24 is on.
Green light: Wii is on.

Nunchuk
http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g61/SPV999/WiiFAQ/nunchuk.jpg

You spelt nunchuck/nunchaku wrong!

Guess again:

http://wii.nintendo.com/controller.jsp

Apparently its easier to copyright “nunchuk” then “nunchuck” / “nunchaku”

How does the Wii remote work?

The Wii remote has a 3 accelerometers in it, this allows it sense pitch, roll, yaw, and all three axis.
The Wii remote can also function as a pointer via infrared pointer in the front of the Wii remote and the sensor bar. The sensor bar has a set of 4 infrared lights at each end of the bar. These lights send out a field of IR light that a sensor in the Wii remote picks up on, allowing it to calculate its position.

The combination of these two sensors allow the Wii to track your every motion.

The tilt, velocity, buttons you press, and the pointer information are sent to the Wii via Bluetooth.
The Wii then combines this information and translates it to the screen.

Can the nunchuk do all of that too?

Not all of it. The nunchuk only has the three accelerometers, which allows it to sense pitch, roll, yaw, and all three axis, but it cant act as a pointer.

Sensor bar? What’s that?

As said, it allows the Wii remote to function as a pointer. Its about the size of a pencil and plugs into the back of the Wii.

Can I place the sensor bar__?

The sensor bar can only be place above or below the TV. It also has to be able to “see” the Wii remote, so make sure nothings blocking it.

How long is the cord for the sensor bar?

The sensor cord is about 10 feet long.

Do I need a special TV to play the Wii?

No. Any TV will work. This is because the Wii remote interfaces with the sensor bar, not your TV. Think of the sensor bar as a mouse pad and the Wii remote as a mouse.

How long is the cord between the Wii remote and the nunchuk?

About two-three feet.

Does the Wii remote/nunchuk have rumble?

The Wii remote does, but not the nunchuk

What’s this I hear about a speaker?

The Wii remote has a speaker in the remote itself. This is to add and enhanced level of immersion.
Example: in the legend of Zelda: the twilight princess when you draw your bow, you can hear the draw string being pulled back through the remotes speaker. Once you let go of the arrow, the sound of the arrow flying slowly fades from the Wii remote and into the TV.

How do you adjust the volume on the Wii remote’s speaker?

Press the home button, then remote settings, you can change the volume and rumble from there.

Can I hold the Wii remote in my left hand?

Yes. Taken form Nintendo’s web site:

Because the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers are only relatively dependent on each other, players are free to hold them in whichever hand is most comfortable. The ambidextrous nature of the Wii controllers grants accessibility seldom seen in game controllers.

What powers the Wii remote/nunchuk?

The Wii remote is powered by 2 AA alkaline batteries. The nunchuk attaches to the Wii remote and “leaches” power from its batteries.

Wasn’t there a light gun shell for the Wii remote?

Yes (pictured above). It is still in development and is rumored to launch by mid-07.

My Remotes not working! When I press a button, the four lights at the bottom blink.

If you have a Wii Remote that was synced and working, but now only the LED lights flash and then go off, try the following:

1. Turn the Wii console on and wait until the "Health & Safety" screen appears (don't press A).
2. Open the SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console, just below the disc drive, and press and hold the red SYNC button for 15 seconds. This will clear all synced Wii Remotes from the console.
3. Resync the Wii Remote by removing the battery cover and pressing the red "SYNC" button. Do this for all Wii Remotes you wish to use, and test for proper response.
4. If the steps above do not work, remove the batteries of the Wii Remote and leave them out for at least 2 or 3 minutes. Reinsert the batteries and sync the Wii Remote again. Test for proper response.

If after removing the batteries for several minutes, and resyncing the Wii Remote, your still unable to get the Wii Remotes to work, try syncing another Wii Remote if available.

http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/wiiremote.jsp#resync

Also try: Unplugging the Wii for a few minutes, then plug it back in, then turn it on using the Wii Remote

-------------------------------Backwards compatibility--------------------------

-----------Gamecube games-----------

Can the Wii play Gamecube games?

Yes. All Nintendo Gamecube games can be played on the Wii.

How can it play Gamecube games?

The Wii has very similar architecture to the Gamecube, so similar that it can play Gamecube games with out the need for additional software. This makes it much more reliable then software emulation like the 360 has.

Where do I insert the disc?

Same place you put Wii game discs.

What about controllers?

You can only use Gamecube controllers for Gamecube games.

What about my old game saves?

The Wii has two Gamecube memory card ports right beside the controller ports. Thus, you don’t have to restart any of your games.

Can I save Gamecube games to the Wii’s internal memory/an SD card?

No. This is not a hardware issue though, it’s a software problem. Gamecube games only know of two places that they can save games to: slot A and slot B. thus, they don’t know how to save to internal memory or SD cards.

Can the Wii use the GBA player?

No.

Can it use the Gamecube/GBA connector cable?

Yes.

Can I play online-enabled Gamecube games online mode with the Wii?

No. For some reason, Gamecube games cannot connect to the internet via Wiis online.

-----------Virtual console-----------

Classic controller
http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g61/SPV999/WiiFAQ/classiccontroller.jpg

What’s a “Virtual console”?

The virtual console is an online store that you can buy and download old games from.

What systems can I download games from?

NES, SNES, N64, TurboGrafx 16, and SEGA Genesis for now, more could be added at a later date.

Prices?

NES = 500 Wii points
SNES = 800 Wii points
N64 = 1000 Wii points
SEGA Genesis = 600 Wii points
TurboGrafx 16 = 800 Wii points

These are base prices and will fluctuate from game to game.

What are “Wii points”?

Its Nintendo’s online currency. Basically, 1 Wii point = $0.01. Wii points can be purchased in a “gift card” form from most stores.

Wait, wont the internal memory fill up fast?

NES = 200 KB or right around there
SNES = 1-2MB
N64 = 8MB, most were 16MB, a few were 32MB.

The Wii has 512MB internal memory, that’s a lot of games. If you still need more space, you can save VC games to SD cards as well.

How many games can I store on the Wii?

Every time you download a game it becomes it own channel. There can be a total of 41 VC games can be stored at any one time. If you want to download a new game, but all the channels are full, you can delete a game and re-download it later at no extra cost.

What happens if I accidentally delete a game/my system breaks?

Your games are tied to an online account that keeps track of what games you have purchased. If you accidentally delete a game, your system breaks, or you simply want to free up some space, you can re-download the game at no extra cost.

So does this mean the could add online play/bonus features to some games?

They could, and might in the future. But the first wave of VC games will be direct ports. So if the original game didn’t have online, the VC version wont. If the original game didn’t have a save function, the VC version wont.

Classic Controller?

(pictured above) The classic controller can play all VC games. It plugs into the Wii remote, so it doesn’t need batteries.

What’s that button for at the top of the controller?

It releases two clips in the holes on the back of the controller. This may be used for future attachments.

What if I don’t want to buy a Classic Controller?

Decide for yourself.
Controller compatibility chart:

Platform------Wii Remote------Classic Controller-----Gamecube Controller

NES-----------Yes--------------------------Yes-------------------------Yes
SNES---------No---------------------------Yes-------------------------Yes
N64-----------No----------------------------Yes-------------------------Yes
Genesis-----Some-----------------------Yes------------------------Some
TG16---------Yes--------------------------Yes------------------------Some

----------------------------------Online information ------------------------------

How do I get the Wii online?

The Wii has built in WiFi, making it WiFi ready right out of the box. However, it lacks an Ethernet port.

So, you have three choices:

1) $30 USB - Ethernet adaptor for a wired connection.

pros: can be more reliable then a wifi connection and is the fastest way to get the wii online.

cons: your Wii will have to be within cords reach of a wall outlet, and that’s $30 for a device you cant use for anything else.

2) $30-$40 DS USB WiFi dongle.

pros: its quick easy and secure, no one can hack into it like a regular router. can also be used for the DS.

cons: its range is really poor, your Wii would have to be in the same room as your comp. it only works with windows XP. and your PC has to be on while using it.

3) $40-$80 regular WiFi router

pros: will more or less cover your whole house (and maybe then some) with a WiFi signal, so you can put your Wii anywhere. can be used for most any WiFi device.

cons: can take a little longer to set up, and if not secured properly can lead to hackers and people leaching off your WiFi.

Can the Wii get a virus?

The short answer is no. The virus would have to be specifically designed for the Wii. I would think that would be more trouble then its worth, but you never know.

Does the Wii have online play?

Yes, but not at launch. The first game to feature online play will be Pokemon Battle Revolution (working title?) and is due out in 07. The Wii will use the friend code system, which is similar to the DS, except that its one system code, instead of per game (though the developer of the game may opt to use a separate code).

What’s a friend code?

Basically, it’s a safer way of online play. Unlike Xbox live where you can play against any random user, you cant play against someone unless you have there system’s friend code and they have yours. This allows you to monitor and choose who your playing against.

Can I browse the Internet?

Yes. You must download the opera web browser through the shopping channel. The beta version is available now for free; the full version will come online March 27 2007, and will be free to download until June 2007. if you download it before June, it will be free forever; if you download it after June it will cost a one-time fee of 500 Wii points.

What can the opera web browser do?

Pretty much everything that a normal web browser can. It is flash and JavaScript enabled, allowing you to visit most any site and even play online games like RuneScape.

Wait, there’s no keyboard!

No, there’s not an external keyboard at this time. You use the pointer on the Wii remote and an on-screen keyboard to type things. A first or third party keyboard may come out in the future.

What’s this “wiiconnect24”?

Wiiconnect24 means that your console is connected the internet at all times, allowing it to download firmware updates and other things even when the console is “off”.

What’s a “Wii channel”?
Wii channel is the browsing screen that gives you a full view of games and content accessible from your system.
Wii Channel was created with the idea of "expanding the number of television channels" available to users. By increasing the software stored within the system, you get access to new channels, all selectable from a main selection screen.

How many channels are there?

Your Wii can have a total of 48 channels, 41of which will be used for VC games.

What are the different channels?

The following is taken from IGN’s Wii FAQ:

Disc Channel
Go here to start up Wii and GameCube games. You simply aim the Wii-mote at the Disc Channel icon and jump directly into the action. When you're done, you pop back out into the main channel interface.

Photo Channel
This channel enables you to take digital pictures stored on an SD memory card and display them on your television screens. Users also can manipulate the photos in a variety of creative ways, such as zooming or creating mosaics, puzzles or slide shows. You can use the Wii-mote to draw, add stamps, and copy and paste. You can also modify photos by brightening them, converting them to monochrome, inverting the color or changing them to stark black and white. Meanwhile, you can even add an MP3 tune to your slide shows. The Photo Channel provides a fun and easy outlet for people to edit their digital pictures. Finally, when you're all done, you can send your pictures to other Wii consoles by attaching a photo to the Wii Message Board.

Internet Channel
Go here to access the Opera internet browser. In addition to supporting flash (making this a step up from the DS browser), the browser uses the Wii-mote to zoom in and out. The browser will normally cost money or Wii Points, but Nintendo will - at least in Japan -- make it available as a free download until June of 2007.

Forecast Channel
This free weather service requires an Internet connection. In addition to daily weather based on region, you also have access to a weekly forecast. The service gives you a view of the Earth, which you can rotate to access different regions. The Wii24Connect service automatically updates the weather conditions throughout the day so that the forecast and globe search is always accurate.

News Channel
The latest news is automatically updated and viewable through this free service, which also requires an internet connection. The new channel is said to have "functions indicative of a game machine." Users can also change the font size for easy viewing.

Mii Channel
In this channel, you create your own avatar, which is referred to as a "Mii." Your Mii is used in Wii games (as in Wii Sports) and can be transferred to your Wii-mote and used on other Wii consoles. Nintendo chief software producer Shigeru Miyamoto commented at Nintendo's Japanese Wii press conference that this is a feature he's always wanted to have. Up to 100 Miis can be stored on your console and 7 Miis can be stored on a Wii remote.

Wii Shop Channel
This is where users go to buy Wii Points or redeem them to download classic videogames to the Virtual Console. You also can use points to download the Opera browser used in the Internet Channel.

Message Board
In addition to the individual channels, the Wii Channel interface gives you access to a message board, used for exchanging messages with your family members. Nintendo considers this similar to posting a memo on a refrigerator. In addition to writing text, you can also include images from your SD card in the body of messages. The message board service also gives access to the Internet via WiConnect24, allowing those with whom you've exchanged friend codes to see your memos. You can also send messages and photos to cell phone users and the Message Board will eventually feature updates with game-specific items and other goodies that can be downloaded and integrated into software. You might even see memos created by games like Animal Crossing. This is not an actual Wii channel, and does not count as one of the 48 channels.

Wait, what’s a “Mii”?

As said: In the Mii channel, you create your own avatar, which is referred to as a "Mii." Your Mii is used in Wii games (as in Wii Sports) and can be transferred to your Wii-mote and used on other Wii consoles. Up to 100 Miis can be stored on your console and 7 Miis can be stored on a Wii remote.

If you want to create a Mii, copy and past the link below. Note this does not represent the final version, as there are several more options, but it gives you a general idea.

http://www.blogsmithmedia.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2006/10/mii-v3.swf

When will these channels be available?

All Wii channels are up right now, right out of the box. Though you have to download the News, Forecast, and Web browser.

What, no music channel?

Yes and no. there is no channel dedicated to music, however you can play music via the photo channel, provided it stored on an SD card and is in MP3 format.

So, does that mean custom sound tracks?

Yes, provided the game allows it.

What about a video channel?

Once again, yes and no. You can watch videos through the photo channel, provided they’re on an SD card and in MJPEG or .mov format.

Can I use the USB ports to....

Most likely not. So far, the only thing the USB ports can be used for is the Ethernet adaptor. They may come out with a firmware update that allows USB keyboards, hard drives, or other things, but nothing has been announced.

END FAQ.

There. Finished... I think... We'll see... Maybe. Smile

Very well done SPV999!
Half of this stuff I didn't even know! To bad about the RF thing though, I have an old TV in my room and now a useless RF adapter.

I have a DS wi-fi connector, directly from nintendo's website (I got it in december) will I be able to use that to acess wi-fi? Is that the same thing as the 'dongle'?

Yep.

It comes with wifi capabilities built in, yes. But you still need something to act as a wifi hotspot or else it doesnt have any way to access the internet.

I'll play Wii sports first. What's the best game on it? Any tips?

You should definitely play Wii sports first to get used to the controls. The only other game I have right now is red steel, and while its awesome, there may be a better game to start with.com

The best games on it are tennis and boxing. Boxing is good for if uoi want a good workout, but tennis is the most fun overall. Bowling is pretty cool too. The only one I really dont like is baseball. I think is really cheesy and boring. The wii fitness test is an awesome way to check how you're making progress, and the other training program is a lot of fun. My favorite one is the second one on bowling (you take 10 shots and after each shot a new row is added [by the end you bowl like 91 pins or something, its awesome]) The really cool thing about Wii sports is the skill level system. As you beat more and more games, your skill level increases making the computer AI easier or harder depending on how you do. Although it starts out easy, it soon gets much MUCH harder (especially when you're on the pro levels)!! Good luck and have fun. And by the way twilight princess is amazing. Although the first hour or so is a tad slow, it picks up so fast after that and you're totally engrossed almost immediately. Its definitely the best game of this generation, and possibly one of the greatest ever!

I got a chance to sit down and play a bunch of games yesterday-today. I’ll rank them for now, and later this week (or next week) I’ll edit this post an add some reviews.

Beginner games:
Games that showcase the Wii remote very well and are very pick-up-and-play. Extremely fun, and can be highly addictive, yet lack depth and complexity. These would be excellent games to get used to the system with, or to get a non-gamer addicted.
1)Wii sports
2)Rayman: Raving Rabbits
3)Elebits

Intermediate games:
Games for a slightly more experienced group, someone who knows how to handle the remote, but isnt perfect at it. Has some depth, but not a huge amount.
1)Excite Truck
2)Call of Duty 3

Expert games:
These games have much depth, and require intimate knowledge of the remote. Not for beginners.
1)The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
2)Red Steel (note: while red steel lacks some depth, the controls aren’t laid out very well, and can be hard to get used to)

Well, thats all the games I have for now. ^_^
