'''Wii''' (Japanese: '''ウィー''' ''Wii'') is [[Nintendo]]'s seventh-generation console, which serves as the company's competition for Sony's {{wp|PlayStation 3}} and Microsoft's {{wp|Xbox 360}}. Its handheld counterpart is the [[Nintendo DS]]. The [[Nintendo 3DS]]'s graphical and CPU capabilities are nearly identical to the Wii. Like its predecessor, the [[Nintendo GameCube]], the Wii is able to connect to software titles on the handheld of this generation, the [[Nintendo DS]]; has a Pokémon game that serves as a battle arena for the [[Generation IV]] Pokémon games—in this case, [[Pokémon Battle Revolution]]; and also has a storage system: [[My Pokémon Ranch]]. It was succeeded by the [[Wii U]], which is backwards-compatible with all Wii games and controllers.
It was discontinued in Japan and Europe on October 20, 2013.<ref>[http://www.engadget.com/2013/10/20/nintendo-stops-selling-wii-consoles-in-japan/ Engadget - Nintendo stops selling Wii consoles in Japan]</ref><ref>[http://www.gamespot.com/articles/wii-discontinuation-in-japan-won-t-affect-availability-in-united-states/1100-6415717/ GameSpot - Wii discontinuation in Japan won't affect availability in United States]</ref><ref>[http://www.mcvuk.com/news/read/time-also-called-on-wii-in-europe/0123162 Time also called on Wii in Europe &#124; Games industry news &#124; MCV]</ref>
