Nintendo Revolution Officially Renamed 'Wii'
-- Posted by XanTium on April 27 13:02 EST

From next-gen.biz:
QUOTE

Nintendo has officially ditched the drab "Revolution" name for its next-gen console, and adopted the more sophisticated "Wii".

"While the code-name 'Revolution' expressed our direction, Wii represents the answer. Wii will break down that wall that separates video game players from everybody else."
"Wii will put people more in touch with their games ... and each other. But you're probably asking: What does the name mean? Wii sounds like 'we,' which emphasizes this console is for everyone."
"Wii can easily be remembered by people around the world, no matter what language they speak. No confusion. No need to abbreviate. Just Wii. Wii has a distinctive 'ii' spelling that symbolizes both the unique controllers and the image of people gathering to play."
"And Wii, as a name and a console, brings something revolutionary to the world of video games that sets it apart from the crowd. So that's Wii. But now Nintendo needs you. Because, it's really not about you or me. It's about Wii."

I was hoping to have the first post, so I could post the exact same thing. Shoulda stuck with Revolution Nintendo. Bad move going to a noise, not a name.

Talk bad, talk good. What's important is just to talk about it. And we all know everyone will...

And judging a not even released system by it's name is quite close minded...

I don't thing we are judging the console, just the name. Which in my opinion is pretty lame.
