    nintendo64 Nintendo Wii

    Thats right... the official name is here....

    Nintendo Wii



    Check all major gaming sites they have it plastered around:

    Nintendo site:

    http://wii.nintendo.com/

    It is pronounced "wee". The name is kinda growing on me, but is has slight "negative" connotations lol. Watch the teaser on the website and the name may grow on you to. Plus the trailer is just really cool lol...

    His res version of the logo:

    "Wii will rock you"

    My own personal feeling though... a name that requires an explanation is a failure.

    Yah these jokes are everywhere... as you can see i was awake when the announcement was made and also made every joke under the sun about it. After sleeping on it... well i still think it was a stupid name and something better could have been done.

    Even "Nintendo ii" (Nintendo Ee) would have made a similar statement but without the double meanings.

    HOWEVER upon waking up i do see where Nintendo was coming from with this... and... well it could work and become as mainstream as iPod.

    11-12 days till E3 and we may still see the name change again. Like the StarCube and... Ultra 64 were changed after being announced.

    ON a lighter side... the video kicks ass and the logo looks pretty nice. I love the name even, just not how it is pronounced.

    I hate the name myself and think they should have stuck with revolution. Wii makes it sound like a cheap plastic toy that you would buy in Tokyo.

    Obviously the name was designed and created by Japanese nintendo, and so they clumsily put together for the world market a marketing campaign around "we can play together". Lame lame lame. Hopefully the name doesnt effect sales and the console is that good at E3 that all will be forgiven...I wont hold my breath

    The name once getting over the immaturity is sounding better. But i still do not like it. I still believe the "real" name will be announced at E3.

    Matt from IGN came up with Nintendo Phoenix.

    I am in love with it lol... rising from the ashes etc etc. I liked the name Revolution as a codename but not the system name. My money originally was on Nintendo RS. Revolution is too hard to say for asians is apparently the problem.

    Don't know why, but I have a feeling it's just a marketing ploy to get attention and they'll make the big announcement at E3. Don't ask me why I think this, maybe it's because I can't get used to the name, I thought I liked it, then all the Wee jokes popped in to my head. It will still Pi...Wii all over the competition (Sorry, couldn't resist)

    yah the jokes are everywhere... in fact in the OFFICIAL NINTENDO FORUMS have banned and censored the word "Wii" because of how many connotations it uses.

    LMFAO... so in the official Wii forums it is banned to say the name Wii... LOL...

    Well they have re-allowed the name again in the forums...

    Wii is now trademarked and ALOT of game reporters believe there is NO way Nintendo will change the name again.
