    truly what is in a name, the playstation 2 is just called ps2, not to mention playstation come on that had a few cracks about it when it first came out, and the x-box I know a few jokes that circulated on this one that were much worse than ...
    ... well maybe not worse but about the same.
    If you never try you may never fail, but you will also never succeed.

    Nobody liked the name "Google" or "Blockbuster" or "Disney" and they all became huge multi-million dollar companies. New names always seem weird at first and it's natural because you're not used to hearing it. Wii is supposed to be about bringing gamers together. We and not Me. The ii is supposed to be two people. I think it's a very clever marketing strategy. I think you'll find that it'll grow on you as did the other very famous, countless names we know today.

    isnt the "ii" supposed to stand for the wiimote and the nunchuck?
    When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much screwed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.

    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    Eagles may soar but weasles don't get sucked into jet engines.

    It stands for lots of things, but if you look on the box it looks like two bodies with heads That's what it's meant for, It's like a double meaning of We and the two people

    If you look at my banner, you will see a phrase that has been used by folks at the big N.

    are you even getting a wii, or are you at all interested in it then? (not trying to turn this into a "Togg" incedent >.<)

    I'm a dudette. If you don't like the Wii, nor are you a Nintendo fan..then why do you even care about the name? Why do you even waste precious time of your life, which your parents have blessed you with, posting in a place you don't like?


    I swear, it never ceases to amaze me how simple logic seems to escape people....
