    Wow... there was really nothing wrong with Revolution.

    Free association of "Wii" sounds like "wimp", "weak", "small penis", or as demigod pointed out, "urine".

    Kid: Mommy I wanna wii!
    Mom: Didn't we toilet train you 5 years ago?

    I can see how the "i"s symbolize the remote control controllers but... still. It's dumb.

    Even the market analysts think it's dumb.

    As I said elsewhere, at least they aren't going with Nintendo 5. I mean what creative genius came up with Play-Station 3? That must've been a hard one. Or X-Box 360 so X-Box 2 doesn't seem to be behind the Play-Station 3.

    I agree with the analysts who say that Nintendo held "Revolution" out so long that the system became "branded" with that name. People liked it and got used to it. (Unlike Gamecube, which was codenamed Dolphin... but was changed to gamecube much earlier in the game). So now to change it to "Wii" is a backwards step. Especially since it is so lame sounding.

    On the other hand, Playstation or Xbox sounded dumb at first too (granted, not quite THIS dumb).

    My roommate thought it sounded like a shortening of "Wi-fi", which sounds dumb too, lol.

    Re: Weeeeee!!!

    yeah

    I was a bit shocked by this at first but now I'm pretty indifferent

    I won't be playing the name I'll be playing the system so that's always good I suppose

    but the name is a bit weird

    I'll probably take to calling it the Nintendo or the Nintendo Wii rather then just Wii


    Nintendo sure knows how to fill one with mixed emotions

    they throw this name at me which is just bleh

    then the next thing I know I'm reading interviews on IGN about the new Madden and Monkey Ball games which have me thinking that Wii will have some great launch titles

    with all the titles listend Wii could potentialy have a good showing at E3

    "Stop going 'Wii'! No one says, 'Wii'!"

    I have to admit, its a pretty dumb name for a system, though. ><

    I said something like that on another fourm. Nintendo has always been created, and I could care less about the name.

    I agree. As long as the system has some fun games (which we'll hopefully see at E3), then I couldn't care less about the name of the system.
