    It's either a new graphical powerhouse gaming console aimed at its own audience, or the 3Gs equivalent of the Wii...

    Sounds more like a line of games. Maybe a series of workout games or something.

    Patents rarely confirm any sort of announcement for a console or game.

    I modified your post. Grammatical mistake. [​IMG]

    I doubt they're clever enough. They named the Revolution (I refuse to call it Wii), Wii, didn't they.

    I dunno calling something a funny name can make it more famous and get it more publicity.

    Well, technically, Nintendo is/are a company and not a single individual, which is a reason in some dialects of English to refer to it/them in the plural.
    And Wii was only weird within the first month or so of its existance. By the time it came out, is was already fine.

    It's to stop clones from stealing the Wii's name. They did also patent Zii and others.

    It sounds like another accessory. Maybe it's a treadmill now? Either that or it's some sort of Nintendo-licensed energy drink or cereal. Delicious...

    Probably another legal filler. Odds are some company will say "IT'S THE POWER WII! A MORE POWERFUL WII!" or something along those lines.

    Power Wii supposed to know what any of this is? I suppose it's a line of fitness games like sevael suggested.
    @Yukito: Yeah I was thinking power glove as well as Nintendo Power.

    I'm sure it's just the modern day version of the Power Glove.

    i bet it came from their own series of power games like power tennis and golf
    many hope for it to be a console but i seriously doubt if they would patent something without giving an idea about it... its not their strategy
