Nintendo... Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!! \^o^/

Terrible. Just terrible. Are they aware of how many millions of jokes are being made right now? Are they associated with the videogame world comic strip writers?

best one I've seen so far: "Nintendo is so intent on becoming number one, that they named their console after it."

The problem with "Wii" isn't that it's hard to say, but that it rolls off the tongue too easily. The explanation for the name, while making sense, reminds me of the convoluted reasoning that Kojima once gave when he tried to give an explanation for tacking the term "Solid" onto both Snake and the MG series. Perhaps this Wii thing is something that doesn't translate well between cultures or are Japanese fans making easy jokes about this as well?

But for my money the Wonderswan still has the stupidist name in game console history.

Well now, that was quick. Chris Morris already has an article up on CNNMoney about the official name, with Kaplan's insights and the general community response included.

EDIT:
"Wii can easily be remembered by people around the world, no matter what language they speak."
"No confusion."

No, people make fun of the name on the 2ch thread as well.

A game system who's name is only one syllable (and only three letters, to boot!)? ...wierdos.

If they make a 2D Castlevania game where I can use that wiimote controller as a whip I'll probably buy that Nintendo console.

Now Nintendo can have their own constitution...


Wii the people will create bad names for our consoles.

I have a feeling, that the name will catch on, like caramel sticking to teeth.

Wii? Wii? WiIIiiIiiIIiiIiIiIi?

Uhhh... it's so stupid that I actually like it!

Neither "game boy" was the most brilliant name ever...


P.S.
the name is suggesting me so many bad pranks & puns right now that I've better to switch off the computer, leave the office at once and go home to rest my sick, sick mind.
