Zone is a brand name for inexpensive consoles with built-in games that are marketed by Ultimate Products Ltd.. Most of the Zone consoles superficially resemble the Wii but have a 16 or 32-bit architecture. Ultimate Products even claimed that the Zone consoles are not meant to compete with 7th generation consoles, and are therefore sold at a lower price.
In the United States some Zone consoles (such as the 40, 60, and 3D) were available at CVS Pharmacy. In the UK the Zone 40 is common in discount stores, but other models are only affordable from TV shopping channels.
