Because the Wii was designed especially for seniors.
One of the big conumer groups games can't reach is seniors, and females in their 20s and 30s.
Nintendo took a big gamble and decided to come up with a game console for seniors. That is why the games and the controllers are easy. So it is less intimidating.
I don't think ever in their wildest dreams did they predict it would be huge. But the easiness makes it great for kids.And those who are not game saavy.
I figured it would take off just for that reason, but not to this extent.
And they even got smarter by making it an exercise machine. To make it fun so people can interact.
And people who have never touched a game machine before like it because they can use it.
