    :lol: You guys are kidding right? Wii (pronounced "we") is a rumor spread by Nintendo and is not even close to the stystem's real name. Call it Revolution for a more accurate picture. Yeah I know Revolution is not the real name but this website is based around a console that doesn't exist in terms of the name :tard:

    Peace

    ^-- hmm, that link goes to a site called "The Wiire"....

    and revolution was just the nintendo code name to begin with, if neither name is real wii wiill (couldn't resist) do for now until the real name is known.

    ^-- very true, otherwise sony wouldn't be selling anything....playstation: good, playstation 2: sequel naming :(....playstation 3: enough already....

    don't get me wrong i like the playstation, just to point out that names don't really sell the system

    I like the name Wii, but if that is not the real name of the system, then we shouldnt sweat, there are GoDaddy coupons to solve our problems!

    Yep, and that's also an awesome band.
    Back to topic.

    Of course Wii is the official real name, it has been called that on E3. XD

    Yea i cant see why Nintendo would change the name again, not after the amount of money spent branding it at E3 and ofcourse the mass press attention and publicity the name has received.

    Actually the real name is wii, their not dumb, their whole press conference was surrounded by the word and [playing is believeing]. Theres no way Wii isn't the real name.

    wii is the real name¬¬

    OF COURSE WII IS THE REAL NAME, why would nintendo, the greatest company for games, give it a real name, then change it, after keeping hte world in suspense, with its recent code name, the revolution,
    i dont know about some of you, but you really dont follow games much, it seems obvious, nintendo HAVE officially announced the name, wii,
    and yes, it is pronounced we, but hey, its japanese, and when in rome, do what the romans do!

    I completely agree with that and DRMARIO's post, however some people think that the name would change people's views of it and will fail like the Gamecube.

    Well, I don't think so, I don't actually think the name of the console matters. Like what Reggie said: "It's about the feel of the game, not the look." - or in this case, the name? XD
