Jungle Soft's Sport Vii (威力棒) is a video game console similar in aspect to Nintendo's Wii.[1] Originally released in China in 2007, according to Engadget China the console used to sell for 1,280 Yuan (approximately US$195); as of 2009 the Vii sells for a substantially lower price at 443 Yuan (approximately US$68.) The Vii is not a competitive console in the current generation; instead, it competes in the "plug-in TV game" genre of inexpensive consoles with built-in games. It is based on the 16-bit Sunplus SPG CPU.

The Vii's Handybar controller is similar in design to the Wii Remote but is smaller in size. It features motion detection but not the pointing capability of the Wii Remote.

The Vii handybars also come in:

  • Arctic White
  • Hot Pink
  • Mint Blue.[2]

A redesign of the console, colloquially called the Vii 2 by bloggers, features remodeled controllers and a console design reminiscent of the Nintendo Entertainment System and the PlayStation 3,[3] as well as support for both NTSC and PAL televisions.[4]

In 2008, the Vii was released in Japan under the name V-Sports (Sport Vii).[5]

Zone 60 and Wireless 60

While the Vii itself appears to no longer be in production, Jungle Soft worked on the software for another console, the Zone 60. Afterwards, much of the software was also included on the Wireless 60, another plug-and-play console. As a result, many vii titles appear on the Zone 60 and Wireless 60 consoles. However, the motion controls have been simplified to the point where motion just triggers a press of the A button. As a result, many of the games need to use power meters to determine distance or power.

Titles that appear are:

-Bowling
-Fantasy Baseball (renamed Baseball Practice)
-Catch Fish (renamed Fishing)
-Alacrity golf (renamed Golf)
-Come On! (Wireless 60 only, renamed Sea-world)
-Free Craps (Wireless 60 only)
-Bubble Blaster (Zone 60 only, renamed Ball Blaster)
-Brave Kaka (Zone 60 only, renamed Brave Heart)
-Bump Bomb (Zone 60 only, renamed Lady Bugs)
-Bump Jump (Wireless 60 only)
-Fire Fighter
-Hero Legend
-Jewel Master 2
-Lightning Plan
-Magic Jelly (Wireless 60 only)
-Mr. Onion
-Pinball Fish (Wireless 60 only)
-Plumber (Zone 60 only, renamed Plumber Man)
-Rapid Stream
-Squirrel Bobble (Zone 60 only)
-Tiger Rescue (Zone 60 only)
