Nintendo has officially ditched the drab "Revolution" name for its next-gen console, and adopted the more sophisticated "Wii".
does that have anything to do with it??

Where the hell is the marketing in that?
is it pronounced Wee? rofl

As in “we.”
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.
And together, Wii will change everything.
i think its a gaylord idea to call it WE,.... just the same as the xbox '360'... whats happening to the world today. cant ppl come up with decent names anymore :(

I moved this topic :) Doesn't have anything to do with clan discussion really, more like gaming with the whole renaming of the Nintendo.
By the way, the Nintendo Wii sounds even gayer than the Nintendo Revolution!!! Revolution wasn't a bad name, but Wii ruined it!! :angry:

tell me about it.
i can only pray that microsoft doesnt come up with another gaybo name for its handheld :lol:
[*RTX*]Badmiyamotofinger - May 4, 2006 06:35 AM (GMT)
Yep bingo, Nintendo Wii.
Just like everyone else on the Net, people are saying it's a really gay name.
I'm still pronouncing it as "Why" not "Wee".
It must be one of those viral marketing thingys as this is the worse name Nintendo has made up.
Hopefully they'll have a "surprise" at E3......

they are still calling it Wii. :)
their pitch is that its a system to get EVERYONE into it, and that its not just a gaming system for previous gamers, but for grandma and grandpa, mom and dad, dog and cat, and core gamers too. though, because of the controller i have a feeling that the only core gamers that are gonna get 1 are those that are religous nintendo fanboys. its too much of a change too quick, though i think it will grow on ppl.
there are some really kewl features with the motion controller thoug. specially for the new zelda game with the bow and arrow :) (look it up)
Rev, what u gonna change ur name to, if u HAVE too that is.? or are u gonna boycot us and tell us that theres no way in hel ur changing it! ? :P
[*RTX*]Badmiyamotofinger - May 12, 2006 01:40 PM (GMT)
Yeahi was really hoping for a name change.
I'm still calling it "wi" instead of "wee".
I'm gonna get the machine anyway but I have to get use to saying "I'm gonna play Wee". :(
[*RTX*]Be0wu1f - May 13, 2006 04:50 AM (GMT)
me thinks that every1 is gonna end up simpy calling it it nintendo again LOL :P like in the days gone by, nes was nintendo, snes was nintendo, 64 was nintendo, hell only gamecube has been called gamecube and not nintendo...
[*RTX*]Badmiyamotofinger - May 13, 2006 06:02 AM (GMT)
Well I didn't.
These were what I called them:
NES - Nintendo
SNES - Super Nintendo (I now call it SNES)
Nintendo 64 - En 64
Nintendo GameCube - GameCube

[*RTX*]Badmiyamotofinger - May 22, 2006 09:59 AM (GMT)

I'm still used to calling it "why" but starting to get used to calling it "wee".
[*RTX*]Be0wu1f - May 24, 2006 09:15 AM (GMT)
i keep thinkn of how it will be when u walk into a games shop and the clerk is helping some1 out, saying 'theres some great new games coming out on Wii' and 'have u got a Wii', stuff like that. i dont think it matters how long its been out or how many times u hear it, its still gonna sound wierd. and kinda wrong :) :unsure:
i think after ur input, ive decided to offically announce it from now on being called Wiindo!
"have yo got a Wiindo?" "theres some great games coming out on Wiindo" "buy a Wiindo" "Nindendo Wiindo is on sale" :D
