    Wii Name Change

    Another name change for the Wii?!
    Although it was not too long since codename Revolution was renamed to Wii, there are some rumors that if might undergo another name change in the following months. According to a source inside Nintendo, the negative reaction of the community and marketing strategies are the causes of that possible name change.


    We have received over 200,000 e-mails with complaints about the Wii, and the console name has been commonly associated with urine. We have been the target of many jokes, and we strongly believe that it's a bad thing for the company's reputation", says Mike, who works at the marketing department of Nintendo.

    Mike also adds that people are not taking this new console very seriously. In a recent poll, they found that 62% of gamers think "Wii" sounds childish, and 49% said they wouldn't buy the console judging only by its name. The upcoming Nintendo console features an innovative controller, excellent graphic systems and internet connectivity.

    Some of the suggested names are: Nintendo GameZone, Nintendo FutureNation and Nintendo GlobalBOX. Nintendo denies this possible name change.

    Can you think of any new names for the wii and the controller

    Well, Although "Wii" isnt the greatest name out there, it's original.

    And plus, it's WAY too late to change the name, the system comes out in less than two months, it would take major drawbacks to change the name now.


    Wii pocket money=$273.00
    Bank Account=$1.23
    Money owed to parents = $25.00
    Sweet...

    It wont happen...

    But its VERY interesting this comes up, as I literally just spent my last hour and a half convincing my mum to buy me a Wii for christmas... (succesfully, I may add )

    And, rather expectedly, it went like this...

    "Mum, you know when you said I might be able to get that Nintendo thing last year?"
    "What Nintendo thing?! I Made no promises!"
    "You know, the Nintendo Games Console...the new one"
    "The Nintendo What"
    "The erm... Wee."
    "The wee wee? the wee what? the what wee? The pee pee?"

    Eventually, once I had got her on Wii.com, she stopped dissing it :P

    dont DO DRUGS!
