When Nintendo announced the Wii and gamers got their first look at what has become known as motion gaming, the gaming world was fiercely divided. Some thought that motion gaming was nothing more than some passing fad, and Nintendo was about to release their next Virtual Boy. Some thought it was the future of gaming and Nintendo was ahead of the curve. Nintendo’s decision to use motion sensing controllers with so few buttons was to help open their appeal to the casual market. The Wii became a smashing success and it sent the other two console manufacturers scrambling to get a piece of that market. Of course, Nintendo had already experienced amazing success by making a truly spectacular system out of a suspected “gimmick” with the DS.
