    Not that important, but...

    Why does everyone call it the NINTENDO Wii? I mean, I know the company is Nintendo, I'm not an idiot. But the official name of the console actually is just Wii. You don't see people going around saying "Hey, you know about that Microsoft Xbox 360?" I don't know... It's just something thats been bugging me, and all the sections in this forum are NINTENDO Wii ______.

    I know, I know. Not that important.

    cause some non gamers don't know what a wii is.

    liek, if you walked up to some old English guy and said "i like playing w/ my wii" he'd be like:

    yeah, strange name. . .

    Good point, what Jake said is probably right, however a lot of people wouldn't know what you were talking about if you said Xbox 360 so I think ownage's point still stands.

    Try not to let it get to you, however for decades now Nintendo has stamped there brand name to every product to date excluding Pokemon and of course the Nintendo Wii.

    Try not to let it bother you, it's merely a habit.

    My ma and pop didn't realize my Wii was a Nintendo product for about 3 months after I got it. I happened to mention it one day, and they were shocked that the company they had bought from several times in past (Nes, GB, GBpockt, N64) was this same company.

    Despite the advertising, some people miss the fact that it is a Nintendo product, and the fact that it's Ninty is a selling point for many.

    i like using both nintendo wii and wii because sometimes i dont feel like saying nintendo. or somethimes using wii alone goes all wrong. if everyone called the xbox360, microsoft 360, who would know its a gaming console. well some will find out but the general public wont know untils someone tells them.

    No. The official name for Wii is just Wii. Nintendo is not a part of it. Wii is the first console that doesn't include "Nintendo" in the name.
