It's still more imaginative than the PS3 or Xbox 360.
Back in the gold days you just said what it was. A Nintendo Entertaiment System, A Super NES, a Gameboy. Nothing silly, no mincing words. now the consoles image has come to much into it. A Xbox 360 in a NEs's case would never sell these days.
To much is being placed on the Consoles asthetic value rather than playability.

I don't really like the name. Nintendo Revolution sounded way cooler.

For all the people who posted to say that "Revolution" sounds cooler . . . I would have to disagree. The word "revolution" itself is already clichéd, and further more, I still fail to see why it would sound cooler/better than the weirdness that is "Wii". biggrin.gif

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

That's what I took it to be: a marketing ploy to attract attention, good or bad.

I liked this.
I still want a hands on with the Wii before I buy it. The name is fine but the controler looks like it'll take getting used to.

Eh... I've gotten over the name now. I have to agree with popo, though... that new controller looks like a challenge.

Nothing that can't be over come. If anyone can make it work it's Nintendo.

I hate the name it is so weird. You can't even make a cool abreviation of it like PSP, Cube, or Rev. All that is going to come out of this name is bad "we" jokes and ones about kids going home to play with their wiis.

Well, the name is wierd; but then again all consoles make a wierd name at some point or another. But does the name really affect the gameplay, or graphics of the game? No. People will get used to the name, and the controls. Soon people will be saying
"Wow the Wii is way better then the PS3!"
Nintendo have really outdone themselves in this situation, and i don't think a silly name could bring it down, it's risen up from the ashes; and is once again a strong contender with Sony and Microsoft.

*Sigh*
1)Why would you need to abreviate a 3 letter word?
2)If you're gonna make "Wii" puns then spell "wee" right.
3)Only little kids and morons are going to make wee jokes.

Seeing as you could get both the other consoles for one PS3 I think it's already shot itself in the foot.

I'd love this too be true but most people are to distracted by marketing. unless nintendo try and market the Wii efficently then Sony and Microsoft are safe.
That being said it looks like Sony is going out of it's way to screw itself. like the new Xbox there are to Verions. One at $599 and the other at $399. the cheapest one doesn't have a place for memory cards and the Harddrive is far smaller than the rpice would indicate. the Highend one, while having all the Jiggery-pokery is just to damn pricey. then in a bid to get the Nintendo fans Sony swipped the motion sensors and slapped them in the old controler. Sadly they didn't really think this through and only have one game that can use it.
All Sony can do is hope enough people are swayed by pretty Graphics.
