This refers to the recent name change done by Nintendo.  This name change is bad in my eyes.  I think the Wii is a really corny name, as I can already see some really corny advertising.  I hope this doesn't lose the older generation.

I've already expressed my opinion in an earlier topic. "Nay" on the name change for me.

While Revolution was a better name, I personally don't think the new name is something to lose sleep over...

It's just a name. The games and the functionality will speak for themselves as they already are, particular in Japan. The most recent Famitsu poll put the Revolution ahead of the PS3 in anticipation/will develop for for both gamers and game developers. That really says something about the console's potential and how it's resonating with the public.

Quote
Famitsu polled gamers and software makers about their interest at E3. Both parties were most interested in Nintendo's new hardware. 47.4% of software makers and 45.3% of gamers expressed interest in Revolution. This topped PlayStation 3, which got 36.8% of the developer vote and 44.8% of the gamer vote. The remaining 15.8% of developers didn't respond to the question. For users, 4.4% selected Xbox 360 with 5.5% selecting "other hardware."

I think Wii is a silly and childish name of some reason :-/
Well, Revolution was much better.

Of the two, Revolution was a more catchy name IMO.

Even though I definately like the name Revolution millions time better than this, I really don't care.

As long as it is the same system that we've been hearing about, they could call it the Nintendo bootycheeks for all I care.  It will still be the revolution in my eyes.

I sent my own personal communication - not board official style, just personal - to them with some questions.  I am looking for further information in regards to this right from the horse's mouth.

I was just in time, too.  http://www.nintendo.com is currently under DOS.

O.O That's a terrible name.
What kind of name is Wii?
If you don't want the name Revolution then come up with something else.
I don't know maybe Virtual, or X, but not wii.
