    Pardon my salt, but it seems like the community of GBATemp doesn't know what the Nintendo console with the gamepad is called.

    It is two separate words, with a capital W, and a capital U.
    It is not WiiU, and it is not Wiiu.

    Wii U.

    If they can't give advice without getting offensive, how are they supposed to know the name of a console? You expect too much, my friend!

    And this is important because...?

    Does it really matter? People can write it down the way they want.

    It may well be the stupidest console name there has ever been. And I love the system overall, just a dumb ass name.

    Who cares really, just assume it's a typo, or the space bar is broken, and move on.

    If you're gonna go there then might as well do the same for all these:

    GameCube / Gamecube
    Gameboy / Game Boy
    Gameboy Color / Game Boy Color
    Gameboy Advance / Game Boy Advance
    NDS / DS
    N3DS / 3DS
    NN3DS / N3DS

    This is no PSA. It's just nitpicking!

    Edit: Typo

    I thought this would be taken as the joke I meant it to be. I'll shitpost on the Edge of the Forum from now on.

    To clarify, I don't actually give a damn, you can write it however you want.

    If this thread was meant to be joking or sarcastic or whatever, then the EoF was the sub-forum to go to in the first place anyway. ;)

    I'm afraid you missed the joke then. This sounded more like a rant than anything :)
