Their success of Nintendo's latest home gaming console, the Nintendo Wii, has gain immense popularity and worldwide sales. The technology behind the Wii is the main reason why Wii games are "selling like hotcakes" since its launch in 2006.

Enter Wii motion gaming

So what makes Wii games so special? Well Nintendo engineers and developers have integrated the console to allow motion gaming instead of statically button-mashing on a single controller. This means you play Wii-based games by using a series of accelerometers and receivers built into the Wii's motion sensing controller.

The Wii remote (mimicking the comfort grip of a television remote) communicates with the Wii console's sensor bar via infrared signals. The Wii remote also has a wireless bluetooth configuration making it convenient with natural hard gestures and reduces the risk of tripping over messy wires. A most talked about advantage of the "Wiimote", as its commonly refured, is that it can connect up to four players to play a particular game in the same space, each holding their own Wii controller, allowing everybody to play togther.
