    I decided to look at every single registered domain that started with "nintendo". After five minutes of extensive research, I can say with almost 100% certainty that Nintendo's console will be called the Beem.

    Just look at the evidence:

    NINTENDOBEEM.COM
    - Registered on May 24, 2011 through the same company that registered NINTENDOWII.COM and NINTENDO3DS.COM. This was registered nearly a year before any of the next-gen speculation began.

    NINTENDOBEEEM.COM
    NINTENDOBEAM.COM
    - Registered on May 28, 2011 through two differed registrars. This obviously isn't just a coincidence.

    NINTENDOBEEMSTORE.COM
    NINTENDOBEEMSHOP.COM
    NINTENDOBEEMGAMES.COM
    - All registered on June 1, 2011.

    Also, the domain BEEM.COM was apparently purchased on January 31 for $136,000. Nobody's going to drop that kind of money on a domain name unless they have a vested interest in the name.

    When you look at the evidence, Beem is the only name tha really seems to make sense.[/p]

    Edit:[​IMG]
    The problem is that Project Beem was the name attached to a submission to a Wii 2 mock-up contest run by IGN last month, a fact the super-gamers at NeoGAF have been sorting out. The person who submitted the Beem, 27-year-old Canberra-based Aaron Carr, has registered NintendoBeemShop.com and NintendoBeemGames.com.

    Our take on the name Beem? We're not buying it.[/p]

    Pretty cool if you ask me. Much better than Cafe, Stream Wii 2 or some other stupid one which i can't remember the name of.

    What did you think of the name Wii when you first heard it? You'll have to get used to every name when you first hear of it.
    I don't care what a console is called, Nintendo could call it Nintendo clusterf*ck for all I care [​IMG]

    Oh, pull the other one.:
    "Dooks1111 told me that when he tried to access the site then, he found a logo on it which looks very much like a possible logo for a gaming console, which he then sent me a screenshot of. Here it is:"

    Well here's my mockup.

    Beem me up Nintendo. Sound like Bean. You know. [​IMG]

    On a serious note, can't these internet types wait until e3? Chances are, the people that wrote it'd be called Beem would even be at E3 itself, so why can't they wait 2 damn days?

    Omg. Please, please please no [​IMG]

    It has to be one of the lamest sounding names ever. Even "Stream" was a lot better [​IMG]

    even so, it sounds a lot more likely to be true than 'Stream'. I dunno why, it just sounds Nintendoish.

    Rumor went around quite a bit in the last weeks.

    I say, why not?
    I do recall that the wii name unleashed emotional debate too, doesn't it?
    And It wasn't that bad, afterall.
