Questions tagged [nintendo-wii]

The Wii is a seventh generation television console, and is Nintendo's first home console to feature a built-in shop. Use this tag if the question is about Wii's operating system, hardware, or a Wii-only game feature. You can also use this tag for the Wii Family Edition or Wii Mini, but DO NOT use for the Wii U; use the [wii-u] tag instead.
