    You guys sadden me. You're gamers! And you're crying over a name? Even when you know who it's attached to? This isn't some upstart. This is Nintendo. They probably know what they are doing. People will get used to it. Stop with all the "That name sucks so much I won't buy the console out of spite because it embarrasses my easily fractured soul."

    Sheesh. Fine. DON'T play Mario 128. DON'T play Pikmin 3. DON'T play Smash Bros Rev--I mean Wii--I mean 3. DON'T play Twilight Princess in a new way with the controller.

    Do I think the name is silly? Yes. But at least I'm not so immature the first thing that comes to mind is grade school potty jokes. And WWII? WTF? Also, "Copying Apple with the 'i'"? Not THAT'S just reaching. Apple (I am a Mac user and Apple fanboy.) didn't patent or even create the "i". Nintendo isn't even using it in the same context or even position as Apple does. Get over it.

    I haven't even been to NeoGAF yet. I dread what their reaction was. [Copy Paste reply above]

    I heard they were also considering "Cum guzzling gutter slut"

    I guess Wii is better than that.

    What an awful name.

    As a renowned Nintendo fanboy, I admit to this name sucking massive amounts of ass.

    Dreamcast wasn't near this bad. In fact, I thought Dreamcast was a great name.

    Nintendo, Wii would you name your system this?!

    Not a fan of the name, but I'll still get the system. It's no biggie.

    Can you imagine (Or remember) PSP Discussions back in 2003-2005?

    It'll be normal in all good time, But you have to know what the heck it is before you go on discussing it or hearing about it.

    Wii're talking about the name here. Not the design. Try to keep up. The name is nothing alike. The design is a whole different thing. (Apple's design has influenced just about EVERYTHING since 1998. It's to be expected.)

    I know you like Apple and all, but your zealot is showing.

    I wrote off the system because:

    1. I haven't been happy with anything Nintendo has cranked out since...well, the SNES.

    2. I fear some over-use of attachable "accessories" for the controller that you *need* to buy to play games.

    The name didnt do squat to my opinion...other than make me wonder why they didn't change it to something else.

    Kinda reminds me of that anime "Laputa: Castle in the Sky" and how it had to be changed in Spanish speaking countries. Why couldn't this have been changed in the English speaking countries?


    But here is only one person who will give me a straight, non-biased answer when it comes to the name of this system and that is my girlfriend. She doesn't play games and she doesn't spend time discussing them so her opinon will be pure (and from what Nintendo has said, shes the person they are trying to market to)

    Possibility is infinity! You must be satisfied!

    Only on page 3 of the NeoGAF thread and they're still taking it better. Here's a great reply:

    You people overreact constantly.

    1998: "DREAMCAST? That's the gayest name ever. I'm gonna keep calling it Katana!"

    2000: "GAMECUBE?? What a faggy, blocky name! I'm gonna call it Dolphin, because that's much less faggy!"

    2006: "Wii!? Oh my God, I can't handle it. It's just Revolution for me!"


    Also..

    Look at it this way:
    1. When typing, you never have to shorten it. No "GC" or "PS", it's just Wii.
    2. There's one more lowercase i than any single Apple product, which makes it better automatically.
    3. Your friends and reletives will never confuse it with long, hackneyed names like "PlayStation" or "Xbox" when buying you gifts.

    Embrace the Wii!

    I do not own any Apple products. I don't like their hardware or their software.

    The Wii name, along with the design scheme of the console, its controller, and the DS Lite are all too close of a match to what Apple uses.

    Sure, Apple didn't invent this design style and marketing lingo. But they are the most visible company using it. Because of this there is NO WAY Nintendo could have developed all of this without knowing about Apple or its products. Unless Nintendo locked some people in a cave for 10 years.

    This whole "package" wreaks of Apple.

    Because of this the looks of their new roleout of hardware, and the name do not qualify as original or unique.

    Instead of coming up with a truely unique look and feel for their new console, they decided to attach themselves to a pre-existing popular design scheme in order to bring in more money.

    Ignore the Zealot part. I got you confused with that other Mac user. My bad.

    They didn't call it the "iNintendo". Think about that.

    Also, the guy on the previous page is right, I was just thinking the same thing. The name is much more original than both the competitors. Playstation 3. Yeah. Originality flows out of Sony HQ. At least Microsoft added 359 to their sequel console instead of just 1.

    Jasoco out. Quibble amongst yourselves. I'll chime in if I see something worth replying to.

    I wrote off the system because:

    1. I have never seen it in action.

    2. I've never seen any videos of any games.

    3. I have no idea what games are even on it.

    4. I've never played it.
    Glad we got that out of the way.

    I can't wait to play with my wii all day long lol

    seriously, HATED the name at first but don't give a shit now. getting over it pretty quickly. the name just doesn't matter. Frankly I think I'm going to enjoy the comedy value of the nonstop double entendres. I'll still buy one at launch.

    LordNikon is right, their latest marketing is waaay too Appley.

    All I'm really dreading is how annoying that name is going to be when other people get ahold of it; all those dumbass video game "journalists" who think they're funny, forum trolls, regular journalists who think they're funny, it's going to get real old real fast.

    But yeah, it's better than "Gamecube 2". Of course if this system is successful enough, they'll need to keep the name for the next console and it'll be called the "WiiII".

    I'll probably still call it the Revolution. As a matter of fact, I still think "N64" is a really dull name and to this day I sometimes call that system the "Ultra Famicom".

    It would seem to me that Nintendo is going to play up a sense of community with the name.

    Wii=We. (This could also work with the "Who Are You?" campaign.)

    It's too bad Meston got himself banned, though, because this thread would be so much more interesting with him around.
