    Speculation that the Nintendo Wii U may be rebranded before launch appears to be false, as this notion has been officially dismissed by Nintendo.
    Nintendo have published an image of the Wii U logo on their press site, as well as using the logo on their brand new Wii U Facebook page.
    The logo is effectively the same as before, except that the blue colour has slightly less green to it.

    Fans speculated that Nintendo may rename the Wii U after the response at their E3 Conference last year. and analysts suggested that Wii U may cause some brand confusion much like the Nintendo 3DS did (it's not just a DS that can do 3D, it's a whole new handheld!)

    Well the Gamecube never saw the success that the Wii did.
    Anything would've been a better name than Wii U actually.

    I'm not going to reword the whole article just so it isn't plagiarism. You can easily click the link to read it yourself, it's about discussing the fucking news not crying over what the post looks like.

    I really was hoping Nintendo learned their lesson after the 3DS. I'm sure we're gonna get a lot of soccer mum's buying a Wii U, and complaining that the tablet won't work, and they threw away the actual console because they "already have a Wii".

    Ensue IMMENSE marketing campaign so that people are actually aware it's a totally different console and not the Wii+ (and Nintendo are amazing at advertising, far better than the craptacular Sony). Soon enough the logo won't really matter, although it is a pretty poor choice for a NEW console.

    Even though we had a big discussion about users posting the news properly.. no one really putting the effort or bringing the change lol.

    Anyway, I didnt even think for a second that Ninty would change the brand. Those big companies do whatever they want, they aint gonna listen to fans crying about the name.

    Hmm, it's more than just the fans, business folk thinking they're repeating their 3DS mistake.
    So long as they do a good job at their E3 conference this year and have aggressive enough marketing, I'm sure the Wii U will do fine.

    Big things to factor, the price point, the release date being before the holiday season, and if it has Call of Duty and similar titles that people play the 360 for.

    Edit: Oh hey look at that, my 5000th post.

    u r probably right. the 3ds has outdone the ds during its first year. name recognition is probably what nintendo is banking on. oh, and I made my 500th post yesterday. :P

    I think the Logo is brilliant. The name though, similar to the 3DS, I don`t really like all that much because of how similar it is to its predecessors. Better then a numbered console-name by miles at least!

    What is the fuss over the name anyway?

    The shit. Wii U isn't THAT drastic. It's just a dumb name for a successor and not the end of the world.

    We don't know much about it as is, e3's conference wasn't much to go on after all.
    I can't say that I'm hyped either but they have their upcoming e3 conference to really sell the Wii U.
