    Hilarious new name for the console formerly known as Revolution. Made too many funny jokes already, no need to repeat.

    Wii, needs a better name

    I am a huge gamer and planned on camping out in front of best buy for the PS3 and the Revolution, but because of the new name I am having second thoughts. That has to be the stupidest name ever. And in the press release they made puns like "Together Wii will change everything". Its like a bad joke.

    Gameshark.com says that ii in japanese means friend ship or somthing like that. the two i's are supposed to represent the controlers(which look realy wierd). so it may just be representory. they will probably change the name again. Nintendo Wii just doesnt have a ring to it. besides its a japanese name. they always change them in to american(except for Pokemon )...always!

    Nah, Gamespot said they chose the name specifically because it wont need to be changed no matter what laguage it's in. So I'm sure America will get a Wii... LOL you can't even talk about the system without makeing a joke.

    I agree its the stupidest name ever given to a console, but I'm still gonna be in line to get one. You just can't doubt Nintendo's quality games or their awsome ideas.

    See, I don't know why people are freaking out.
    I actually like it. Revolution was a cool name, but, hey.

    Wanna talk DUMB names? "Xbox 360." 360? Um... OK. I understand that there was a reason but um... Hello!?

    If you're not going to pick up a console just because of it's name, then you're a darn fool. Period. I'd buy a console called "The Enema" if it I liked the system and games.

    Furthermore, I actually rather like the name. At first I though "uuuuuuuhhh... oookay..." like everyone else, but after reading posts of furious (read: ridiculous) people, I realized "who CARES?" I like that it's not an acronym, and I like the image that the letters make. And I rather like its adaptability. People are making jokes, but I don't view that as a good thing, I like something I can joke with.

    Case in point: Snakes on a Plane.

    I like that they're doing something different: that's what the console is ALL ABOUT. That, in essence, is what Nintendo stands for.

    But at the end of the day, if you really care that much, then you've got bigger worries than the name of a video game consol.

    I just feel that Revolution was the perfect name for the console. Nintendo is truly the leader in innovation within the video game industry. With the new consoles ability to download games and the new controller design it was truly a revolution in video gaming. Instead of using a name that describes the system and its intent they picked some stupid letters that have no meaning. To me it is a failed attempt to be cleaver and the puns they use are nauseating.
    Thats just how I feel.

    I'm with Est on this one.

    Not to mention, it's actually an incredibly INTELLIGENT name, at least from an advertizing perspective. In this sort of business, ALL talk is good talk. The more people make jokes, the more people will hear about it, the more people will possibly BUY it.
