The Nintendo Revolution is now...the Wii?!!?

Postby CubsFan7724 » Fri Apr 28, 2006 7:45 am

Its pronounced "we" like the pronoun.

Introducing... Wii.

As in "we."

While the code-name Revolution expressed our direction, Wii represents the answer. Wii will break down that wall that seperates videogame players from everybody else. Wii will put people more in touch with their games... and each other. But you're probably asking: What does the name mean?

Wii sounds like "we," which emphasizes the console is for everyone. Wii can easily be remembered by people around the world, no matter what language they speak. No confusion. No need to abbreviate. Just Wii.

Wii has a distinctive "ii" spelling that symbolizes both the unique controllers and the image of people playing it. And Wii, as a name and a console, brings something revolutionary to the world of videogames that sets it apart from the crowd.

So that's Wii. But now Nintendo needs you. Because it's really not about you or me. It's about Wii. And together, Wii will change everything.


Hint to marketing: when you need a paragraph just to explain what the name is, its NOT A GOOD NAME. I was a fan of the old name, but certainly not of this. I'm embarrased to be a Nintendo fan right now.

I don't care what it is callled as long as the games rock.
Game Cube wasn't a very good name IMO.

I don't like Nintendo anymore, it seems there target age is like 10-12 year olds now considering the games they come out with.

I think a group of concerned gamers should get together and write a letter to Nintendo saying:

"Wii think this new name sucks."

:-D

Seriously they came up with all those different meanings to that name?

I'm sure another reason was "Wii sounds like a synonym for urination, which will help gamers remember to take frequent bathroom breaks to avoid any bladder complications."

As the father of two boys, ages 9 and 7, I'll agree with the point raised above, GameCube is a great system for little guys. Plenty of good games, without the Grand Theft Auto-Vice City stuff.

I know they'll discover that stuff soon enough, but for now, it's great that they're content to don their Mario and Luigi caps and battle Bowser and DK. ;-D


Peace

GC is a good system for all folks. You have Mario and Luigi which is more oriented towards the younger crowd (but can be enjoyed by all), and Zelda and Metroid hit the teens to adult. Also, Mario hasn't fought Donkey Kong in 25 years :D
