Do YOU like the new name Nintendo has given the Revolution?
The Nintendo Wii!
("Oui" in french means "yes")
hell no :/
lemme guess they gonna make games like this now,
Zelda: Wakening Impure Impudicity
i like it! at least it some thing dif ps1-ps2-ps3, xbox-xbox360, none of them are as catchy as wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!
Once again, I think that Nintendo should have just stuck with their codename.
Plus, when I first saw it, I did think it was pronounced the Nintendo Why. And that's not a good look.
No, Zelda Wii. Mario Wii. Pikmin Wii. Animal Crossing: Wild Wii. The list goes on.
And how the hell is 'Wii' catchy? You can't even abbreviate it. Wait, is that a bonus or not... aww, who cares. It's called WII for christ sakes. PS2 and GCN etc. are catchier.
Personally, I don't like it. Simply because it's too childish in nature.
I know Nintendo was trying to have a lot of symbolism tied to the name, and Wii certainly has symbolism in spades. There's the obvious pronunciation of the word, "we", the two i's representing two people gathering together to play, and the two i's representing the revolutions unique controller.
I just don't like the fact that everytime I want to play my Revolution I'll have to say, "Alright guys, I'm gonna go play some Wii for a bit." What if I'm bummed and I gotta now force out a "Wee"? Which is exactly why I'm going to continue to call it Revolution.
Even though the name is not very appealing, regarless of what it is called, I am going to buy one, play it, and love it. It could be called the "Synthetic Machine for Intense Gaming." Or SMIG.
While I'm on the general subject of the SMIG, I would like to say that, if Nintendo was truely aiming for a family console, they are off to a bad start. The only games I've seen, or heard about for the revolution so far are pretty violent. Such as Red Steel, were the Revolution controller takes form of the gun in the game, and it accuratly responds to how you hold the controller. The game is supposed to be incredibly violent, and supposed to be filled with realistic blood effects, and the like.
Good lord, does Nintendo just make these decisions without getting any consumer opinions at all?
Sometimes I think they just hate us.
You gotta be fucking kidding me!!! OK, now I am officially pissed off.
**** APPLICATION FAULT: Laughing too hard, press F1 to reset the Psyfira ****
OHEMEFFGEE! This is fucking bollocks! Nintendo must die!
No, you're wiied off.
sounds like a new catch-phrase to me
It's a nice idea but in reality naming a console whose prounciation is the same as the word for urination, is a pretty f'in strange idea...
I think one shouldn't underestimate the potential this has though... Nintendo could be onto something big.
Oh and the first promo video for wii has been released.
I bet sales for the console will drop based on the name alone. Americans will definitly choose a beefy x-box 360 or a Ps3 over a pussy sounding nintendo wii. It would of been better if they at least named it Nintendo Wifi or something, now everyone is going to call it Nintendo wee wee. Is this the death of nintendo as we know it. They have committed business suicide.
and the nintendo little piggy went wii wii wii all the way home
edit: Okay who's the funny man who voted yes?
Hey guys, wanna come over to my place and play with my Wii?
Well, what should I do to play with your wii?
Here, put this in your hand. ... No, you only need one hand. Yeah, that's good. Now, move it up and down.
Playing with your wii sure is different.
You wanna play with my wii online?
Who the hell calls their yogurt slinger a wee anyway? Honestly, from what I've seen so far, they could have named it anything and I'd buy it. Can't wait for this thing to hit!
