    The name "Wii"?

    Why is it called "Wii"? Thats a dumb name the revolution would have been way better. Well I guess all those kids can shout "WEEEEEEEEE!!!!" with excitement when they buy the "Wii".

    Here is the official reason they changed it to Wii:

    Wii will put people more in touch with their games … and each other. But you’re probably asking: What does the name mean?

    Wii sounds like “we,” which emphasizes this console is for everyone.
    Wii can easily be remembered by people around the world, no matter what language they speak. No confusion. No need to abbreviate. Just Wii.
    Sounds like fun, eh?

    The name got on my nerves for awhile, but then I grew to like the new and different console title. And also there are alot of puns that can go along with it.

    You: "Hey, I would like to purchase a Nintendo Wii"
    Store clerk: "If you buy two, you can get Wii Wii." *laughs*
    You: "Just give me the damn console."

    I'm just gonna call it Revolution. Honestly, whatever it says on the box, just imagine it as "revolution" and it will seem better.

    OH MY GOSH, YOU GUYS HAVE TO HEAR THIS PODCAST ABOUT WII'S NAME!!!!

    It's origin is said in the first 5-10min and has something to do with playground equipment; that's all I'm giving ya. I would really recomend listening to the whole thing because it's fun to hear how everyone reacted to the name when it was first announced.

    Whether you love or hate IGN, just download the file by clicking the Wii-k in Review, 4.28.06 link on the web page and enjoy!



    note: I would have posted the file here, but it's an mp3 file, so it wouldn't let me.
