    Apparently the Revolution was just a project-only name and the real name for the system will be the Nintendo Wii.

    Opinions?

    Yeah......you're insanely late, and everyone has pretty much said they can't stand the name.

    A week at least. Next time I'd suggest using the search function even though it doesn't work very well. :up:

    Pretty much. Other than Spidey-Bat, I'd say I'm the biggest Nintendo fan on this forum and even I spit on the name. :down

    Yeah, I'm really really excited, but apparently they haven't patented the name. Maybe that means it still might change. Here's to hoping. :(

    ... ... ...

    Anyway, I did a search on the word Wii and got no results so...

    Yeah, most people were ragging on the controller. It's gonna be hard for me to accept this name but what's in a name? I just don't know why they choose the name Wii. Is there any reason for it? A hidden meaning?

    It's an awful name. And you're awfully late.

    The 'ii' is supposed to be two little people, so wii, as in we, as in everyone.

    Ah. I thought one 'i' was a person and the other 'i' was a controller.

    lol

    You know, I'm thinking of buying the Wii just so I can shout "WHEEEEE!!!" everytime I play a game. In fact, if you heard a little kid shout that whenever you turned it on, I'd definitely buy it. I need a good laugh.

    Of course, that good laugh would then be followed by tears of wasted money, but whatever.

    If you had a SNES, you're a bigger fan than me.
