The Game Wave Family Entertainment System is a hybrid DVD player and video game console of the seventh generation of video game consoles. It was first released in Canada on October 2005. Unlike more traditional game consoles (such as the Wii, PS3 or Xbox 360) the Game Wave is aimed at a more family friendly market: a majority of its games are trivia based or video versions of more traditional games (such as variants of Scrabble and Blackjack). The Gamewave can connect up to 6 controllers (which look like TV remotes) but comes with 4. Each controller has a different colour (yellow, red, blue, green, purple, and orange) to help players tell them apart. It comes with a case that can hold all 6 remotes and a copy of 4 Degrees: The Arc of Trivia, Vol. 1.
