    Sorry if this has been done before, but I was wondering-
    Is it just me, or do other people like the name 'Revolution' more than Wii? I was actually disappionted when i found out that the Wii and Revolution were the same thing.

    And While I am on the subject of consol name changes, which name was better-
    Dolphin or Gamecube?
    :) Thanks everyone :)

    I would have to say at first, I hated the new name. But after listening to it and getting used to it I have to say that I like Wii a lot. And I also like the Gamecube better than the Dolphin, good job on naming Nintendo :thumbsup:

    Gamecube > Dolphin

    Wii > Revolution

    Maybe because I am used to it now.

    I too liked "Revolution" better. It is a great mission statement. I never have gotton over "Wii". Also, Gamecube is a ton better than dolphin.

    btw, why dolphin? at least revolution meant something.

    Revolution sounds to high-tech and corny. Wii sounds nice and very broad.

    I prefer Wii. At first I didn't like it but I got used to it. It's also shorter which is nice. 'Revolution' seems like such a long word now.

    Gamecube>Dolphin

    'Playstation' sounds like a sex toy

    Names don't have to be words. Xbox isn't a word. Playstation isn't a word, it's two words.

    Proper nouns are proper for a reason.
