Wii!

That's right. The new name for Nintendo Revolution is 'Wii'. I don't know what to think right now, please discuss.  :o Well, it could be a hoax, but... That's what I thought when I saw Wind Waker's graphics for the first time, too :P

what's wrong with Wii? it sounds cool, and when written you can't mistake it for anything. it's original and great.

It just doesn't sound very cool to go to a game store and say "Hey, any new Wii games available?" :)

The bad puns have started already, my fave so far is 'Nintendo fanboys like to play with their Wii-ners'

I dunno, it just sounds silly. And the whole reasoning behind it is... well, I understand it, but its weird. 'Oh the little i's look like people playing together'. Please, spare us :(

No language barrier, they say.

A: Avez-vous acheté un Nintendo Wii?
B: Wii?
A: Oui oui très bien! Je l'ai acheté aussi!

and B is all "what the fuck"

MY Wii will be big and black.

Wii Love Katamari!
The Legend of Zelda: Wii and the Bottle!
Nintendogs: Don't Wii on the Carpet!
Pokemon: Wii Yellow and Poo Brown!

And if a JoJo's Bizarre Adventure game came out, it would definitely be WRIIIIIIItronic.

Personally, my favorite is "Heard the rumors? George's mom plays with his Wii!"
"It's like growing up reading good books or listening to good music. One good sofa breeds another good sofa; one bad sofa breeds another bad sofa. That's how it goes."
