    You're both idiots? OK, just kidding, seriously. Its obviously like the end of a movie no one quite gets. It could mean something or it could mean nothing. I don't think Nintendo will say, so feel free to speculate.

    as far as the pronunciation it is just consistent between other ii words in electronics, like ascii (pronounced as-key)

    as for the meaning, i think it is intentionally ambiguous, whee is a typical exclamation of joy or excitement, and we being directed more towards who will be playing the system 'we will'.

    as far as being part of some language already i seriously doubt it

    Alot of people tslking about Wii fell off, (LOL) Wii still here but they don't see it that way all they see is PS3, and Xbox, Graphix Wii can do that, Bbut if you know a system then you should know about playin for real. Movement, Stredagy, On Point, Realisum. Nintendo has brung that to us Wiiknow. It's called Wii

    Far as I can tell, no literal translation in any known language, used brilliantly for that reason as well as reasons Nintendo intentionally has shared of course, it sounds like fun as in "wheee", it's an other spelling of "we" (and oh how the consumer loves the creativity and cuteness of intentional other spellings), it even looks like a semantical play next to a graphic example as in "double you" and the identical game players "ii". As I opined, brilliant ...but not with any meaning beyond the product.As you said in your replies, close to an actual word in another, non-english dialect, but not wholly so, and not even derived from another source (as in Greek or Latin), at least not in as such provably so.
