| All the major home video game consoles 
| offer downloadable games and add-ons that 
| can be bought from a Web-based store, 
| directly through the user's console. But of 
| the three major companies, Sony, Nintendo, 
| and Microsoft, only Sony assigns actual 
| dollar values to its downloadable content. 
| Both Microsoft and Nintendo work on points 
| systems where users must first buy a 
| specific amount of credits that are then 
| spent on new content.

| Take yourself back in time to 2006 for a

| controller that looks like a magic wand and 
| controls games in a way that's never been 
| done â at least not on such a large scale, 
| and not as the main draw of a console. 
| Motion control establishes itself as a 
| bonafide addiction, and the Wii turns into 
| a runaway success.
