The Wii is the seventh-generation and second latest home console released by Nintendo. The Wii is notable in that rather than using analog controllers for most games, such as its direct competitors, the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the Wii uses a remote-shaped controller (referred to most often as the "WiiMote") to play games. For the Guitar Hero series, however, the Wii still uses a guitar controller similar to those on other consoles; the difference is that, rather than the guitar being a separate controller entirely, the guitar is a peripheral with a slot for the Wii remote to connect to.

The Wii has been criticized for having the same graphics as the PlayStation 2. Also there are some features featured on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that aren't on the Wii for example some downloadable content (DLC) can't be used on the Wii. However despite the criticism it has become the best selling console ever. However it's mainly directed to kids and families.
