Most of us have got used to the “Wii” name, but we still regret that Nintendo decides to change the name, somehow “Revolution” is more appealing to the Nintendo fan base. I was looking at the bottom of the wii remote today, and found out that the No. Part of the Wii-mote is: RVL-003, so decide to go check other parts of the Wii, This is what I found:
* Console: RVL-001
* Power Brick: RVL-002
* Wii-mote: RVL-003
* Nunchuck: RVL-004
* Console Stand: RVL-017
* Console Stand’s Stand: RVL-019
* And so on…
Is obvious that RVL stands for ReVoLution, so it seems that even the console refuses to leave that name. Even the games had the Revolution name on them: Zelda Twilight Princess: RVL-P-RZDE.
Wii had a mass market approach, but Revolution will stay in our hearts.
Viva la Revolution!
