Nintendo's quirky new video game console, the Wii, goes on sale tomorrow.

Wii makes its debut just two days after the launch of the rival PlayStation 3 from Sony turned violent at some stores.

The release of the Wii is expected to be less dramatic, mainly because Nintendo has made sure to have a lot more units available than Sony could muster.

Nintendo is playing catch-up after losing dominance of the home console market to Sony in the mid-90s.

The console itself is a daring design: Instead of the high-definition graphics of the PlayStation 3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360, Nintendo hopes to attract a new generation of fans by changing the way games are played.

The console comes with a motion-sensitive controller that acts as a tennis racket, baseball bat, steering wheel, gun or sword depending on the game.
