I don't think you give your wii enough attention.

This has to be some kind of a joke or something. I mean I know nintendo is bad, and I always say how bad they are, but they can't be this bad. If this is real then this has to be the lowest point in their centuries long history or something. This is going to be a game console that you'd get beat up at school for owning rather than envied.

Wow! But I guess its the trend. Ipod, Ipod Nano, Dell Ditty, Vista. Nintenodwee will sell these things like candy. Who wants to take bets they will slaughter Sony and MS?

ROFL that has to be the worst name EVER. Keep it as 'Revolution' at least it doesn't sound lame like Wii.

In the end it will be the games that sell me on the system but that name is just bad. From a marketing perspective it's suicide. Surprisingly horrible. :thumbdwn:

Same, but I don't understand how even Nintendo's marketing team could think that is a good idea.

Honestly, the symbol looks cool, but the way it's pronounced is just reatarted

...you know, I keep thinking this over, and I still don't buy it. I mean honestly, this is going to turn this company into a laughing stock if the name sticks. It's also going to add to those japanese stereotypes. People would shy away from it in huge numbers.

Yeah I thought so too! I'm sure the system will have a very slick aesthetic but Nintendo is really shooting themselves in the foot here from a marketing standpoint for their U.S. business. On the other hand, maybe this is part of a broader plan to expand beyond the traditional gamer demographic.

Of course that doens't change the fact that the name of their system is also childish slang for male genitals.

No, its British slang for piss.

Yeah it's American slang for piss too. There are certainly several vulgar uses you can make of the word. :D

They may as well sell it as the Nintendo Urinator in the US/UK and at least remove the ambiguity.

This article sums it up well:
However, the name is unlikely to go down well across the large swathes of the English-speaking world - including the United Kingdom - where "wee" is a very common children's slang phrase for the act of urination. In Scotland and Ireland, however, the diminutive console will at least be appropriately named, as "wee" is a word meaning "small" in the vernacular of those regions

Hmm, seeing as how small it is, it's a wonder they didn't call it a Mini-Wii

I guess their slogan could be "size doesn't matter."

I bet the controllers will be called the Wii Jerk (motion sensitive controller) and the Wii Stick (the remote type thing).
