They decided to call it Nintendo Wii, as in 'we'. You can find the original trailer here.

I don't really like the name. Nintendo Revolution sounded way cooler. If they want to get rid of their kiddy image, they really shouldn't name their new console Wii. I think many jokes will be made with this name. Especially that 'Wii' can become 'Wee', referring to a certain body part. dry.gif
I'd rather pronounce it as 'Why'.

Nintendo is getting a lot of attention because of their new console's name change, but I don't like it. I agree with ya', Galorfilinde, I thought "Revolution" sounded much better...

Revolutoin was a code name. The Game cube was going to be the Dolphin.
Fact: It was never, ever going to be called the Revolution. It's not a name change.

If people are so stupid that the name of the console would put them off then I'm truley saddend by this. It's about game play not a name.

It's marketing at it's best. I like that Nintendo is actually trying to raise awareness this time.

They were never going to. How many times must it be said that Revolution was the Code name and was always unlikey to be the actual name.

But Why Have A Code Name To Begin?

Flaws, eh?
Well capatolising word that you don't need to is one. Spelling is mine.

Why not have a code name? Code names are the sh*t. Also as someone posted it's very possible that Wii is just a trick by Nintendo. Cdoe names are generaly for security measures and just something for people to call it untill it's launched.
Why does the milatry give it's opperations code names? It's just easier that way.

New technology. Look at the analouge stick. If Ninty had hidden it better and copy wrtted the idea for using it on contraollers them play staion and X box would still be fumbling with D pads. The internal technonlogy are also vital points to keep secret untill the last minute.

Yea I guess your right.
After all, The big N is well know for plesant surprises. (still in shock from wind waker)
I guess it looks pretty good for Nintendo. The first game for Wii.

I like the idea behind the name but it sounds so "strange" on so many levels. I'll keep calling it the Revolution, though. I decided that a while back when I first learned about it.
