Nintendo Wii (2006)
Original price: $250
Back in 2006, the Nintendo Wii looked like a revolutionary system. The small white box was the epitome of futuristic design. The Wii Remote and nunchuck approached Apple-level design perfection, and attempted to do what no other game system had offered: introduce 3D motion control.
Wii Sports came packaged in, along with one Wii Remote and nunchuck. The system lacked any HD support, and required separate component cables to even get to 480p output, but Wii Sports became a defining moment in mainstream casual gaming, and the main reason people bought the system.
