The Game Wave was packaged with both RCA and S-Video cables, along with 4 IR-based wireless controllers and a case that holds up to 6 controllers; the case and console are designed to sit side-by-side on a shelf to form a complete wave shape. The Game Wave controller has 4-directional navigational buttons used for menu navigation and DVD playback control; the controller has 4 alphabetical buttons along the top labeled "A", "B", "C", "D" designed for selecting responses in trivia games.

A numeric keypad lines the bottom of the controller with Menu and Setup buttons. The Game Wave controllers came in 6 colors: blue, green, red and orange. Blue, yellow and red come packaged with the console, whereas the purple and orange controllers could be purchased separately for an MSRP of $30; each controller color has a different IR beat frequency, allowing the console to differentiate the different controllers for multiplayer gameplay for up to 6 players. Due to the shape of the controller and marketing concerns for a "Family Entertainment System," no action-based game genres are present within the Game Wave's 13 game library. Rather, the software library consists of trivia and puzzle games. In addition, many Game Wave games are inspired by other video games and TV shows.
