Wii-logo 318-2


The Wii X (logo is stylized as WiiX) is a 9th generation console, with a Wii inspired remote, that also comes with over 14 compatibles including a Wii U inspired game  control, a zapper, a microphone, SENSOR+, (Basically a Kinect sensor.), Connectron and the 3D Contloller, a nunchuk and many more. 

Concept and Design

Nintendo wanted a brand new console that had a faster reaction speed, could use a control or could not,and could play all 6th to 9th generation console games. Inspired by the Kinect and iPad it connects to your TV with a lead almost exactly like the Wii U. The name was given due to the newly released Pokemon X, that was a huge success worldwide. After the failing of the Wii U Fit Satoru Iwata made the idea that their should be a brand new console that could improve the amount of calories you could burn quite like Xbox 360 Kinect did. 

The Wii X console looks much like the GameCube, except larger. It has a special port on the front for 5 special silver pads that can be interchanged for different controllers, being: 2 NES, 2 SNES, 4 N64, 4 Gamecube, and 4 Wii classic controller ports. On the top, is a disk drive that opens like the gamecube disk drive. On the left side, is four USB Ports, 2 SD card slots, a port for cartridge connectors. and a port for the sensor bar cord. The right side dosen't have anything except a large X on it. The back side has a power cord port, an HDMI cord port and AV cord ports to hook it up to your television, and a fan to prevent the system from overheating.

Wii X has a Gamecube inspired wireless controller. However the controller has got blue outlines and a blue X (Stylised as X) at the top of the controller, the buttons include A, X, Y, and B, a + pad, and 2 control sticks. the back of the controller there is a button labelled B, very much like the Wii remote and on the nunchuk there is a C button and a Z button.

Main Menu

The MM on the Wii X is quite like the 3DS; it comes with Mii, Mii Plaza, and Mii Plaza Connectify all already dowloaded into the console, it has the Lovefilm 'App', and many other film and video apps such as YouTube. The console has got the Weather 'App', The Feelings App, and Satoru Iwata's Wii X Fit already installed. All of the apps do what they say, the weather app, tells you the and Wii X Fit, as all the other Wii Fit games do, keep's you fit.

At the top there is a panel of buttons, (From left to right), Game Notes, WiiMusic X, WiiDatabase X, Help & Settings, Club Nintendo and Chrome.

Chrome/Nintendo Partnership

In 2013 Nintendo joined with Chrome in an effort to make Nintendo's browsing, quicker, easier, and can respond to customer demands, this resulted in all of the 6th to 9th generation browsers to have an update which changed the Internet Browser to Chrome Browser. The 3DS handheld was also given an update and the Browser was turned into 3DChrome. 3DS can play videos on youtube now due to the update.
