Nintendo Revolution Is No More!

Post by rossmcclymont » Thu Apr 27, 2006 6:56 pm

It's now called Nintendo Wii (as in 'we', not 'wee' :P ).

Interesting choice for Nintendo, but I would imagine they've not just picked something out of a hat - I would imagine they've thought it through.

Personally I think Revolution is a better name, but I'm an Xbox fanboy. :lol:

I think they maybe should have done what Microsoft did with the Xbox - the codename for the Xbox was Xbox - they shouldn't be afraid to keep the same name just because it's supposed to be a codename.

/cue all the urine jokes... :D

I think that it is a really stupid name. Revolution was a much better name.

It's a pretty weird name, and a pretty weird choice. I guess people are just going to end up calling it "the new Nintendo" or say "I'm going to play my Nintendo". Who's wants to say "Hey, come play with my Wii!"? :P

Personally, I really liked the name someone had proposed a while ago as sort of a remix of the codename: "Revo". The Nintendo Revo, now that would have been a much cooler name. :D

Don't know about anyone else, but I'll just be calling it the Revolution. :lol:

Hmm. I think I'll just call it Revolution as well. Anybody else think Nintendo have put another nail in their own coffin? Maybe the last? Don't get me wrong, I'm a Nintndo fan, but there's no way I'm going to ask people if they want to play with my wee, as Erisar said. I reckon they've made life a lot harder for themself. The games are going to have to be even better now.
Personally, I'm getting more and more tempted by the Xbox 360, but I will of course wait to see more of the Revolution before deciding.

Get both! 360 so far has been way worth it to me.

The word looks cool and high-tech, but it's the pronunciation that sucks.

I'd rather have it pronounced as W2.
