The Nintendo Wii is a seventh-generation gaming system that offers wireless controllers, online gaming and multiplayer support. It is also backward-compatible with other console games such as the PlayStation. If you still have the PlayStation (PSX) backup games stored on a computer, you can download a Wii conversion software application to play PlayStation games on the Wii. With this accomplished, you don't have to throw away any of the PS games you enjoy if you no longer have the PS console.
