    Not true...there are whole marketing companies devoted towards brand naming; a name means a lot.

    Think of it as a car. For example, I drive a Subaru Impreza 2.5rs. Now, it can be called by it's chasis code (GM6), or just Impreza, or 2.5rs, or Subaru Impreza, etc. It all depends on how familiar the person is that your are talking to is with cars. I could say something like "hey, check out that badass AE86" and I'm sure not many people will know what I'm talking about.

    Overall, Nintendo is the company, Wii is the product. They are associated with each other, so therefore some people call it Nintendo Wii. If someone said "Microsoft 360" I would most likely know what they were talking about.

    This thread is completely pointless and I can't believe I just contributed that much to it...
