    I didn't believe it at first when my friend told me, had to read around the net a bit before I finally believed it. But I'm over the strangeness of the name, in fact I am starting to get used to it. It's also cool how you can't really initialise the name, unlike N64 and GCN.

    Well, I don't think so, I don't actually think the name of the console matters. Like what Reggie said: "It's about the feel of the game, not the look." - or in this case, the name? XD
    EXCUSE ME!! THE GAMECUBE FAILED!!??? theres somethign wropng with you, because fright now, a five year old console is outselling the xbox 360....the consoles name is gamecube

    Enoch was right.

    I think Wii is a pretty good name. It's different, like the controller. It's easy to remember. And if people make jokes about it, that's advertising.

    It certainly has got people talking about it, my friends and I are still talking about it, there seems to be an endless number of things to talk about. Whether it be the different controllers or just cracking jokes with its name.

    I am a convert. When i grew up i had a mega drive, and the the original PSX. I was VERY disappionted with the PS2, no fun games, like crash bandicoot and light hearted games, and the wonderfull FFXII-XIV after XIV the FF games went crappy (and even they originated at the beginning on the nintendo) and in came (ooh i want to be vulgar) breasts and more breast action, and no light hearted fun games, and so i am now converted over to the cube and am loving yoshi. And who would have thought the 4 swords multiplayer could have caused so much fun and swaering!!!

    What's in a name anyways?


    They say I'm insane, maybe I just am...

    The name has grown on me, at first I did not care for it. But now I see the reason behind it, and plan to happily claim to buy a Wii.
    Yes, sir. I agree completely. It takes a well-balanced individual... such as yourself to rule the world. No, sir. No one knows that you were the third one... Solidus. ...What should I do about the woman? Yes sir. I'll keep her under surveillance. Yes. Thank you. Good-bye...... Mr. President.

    I'm expecting Nintendo themselves to use a few puns.

    I honestly can't see what is wrong with the name Wii. Revolution was a good code name but i think that the name "Wii" just seems to suit it somehow. As far as i see it, anyone that doesn't like the console because its name sounds the same as an english word that happens to be slang for urinate, doesn't deserve to own one.
    What do you call a button masher on the Wii?
