Nintendo has always tried to be unique in the way they do things, and many great innovations have come out of it (along with one or two utter failures I'm sure you'll point out to me in your reply). The Wii is basically the grandest example of Nintendo's dedication to new ideas, so I think the unique name is fitting.
Do you think we'll be talking about it as much if Nintendo came up with a rather cool sounding name? "Wow, can't believe how cool sounding that is!" "The greatest name ever!" It won't create any where near the buzz to cause thousands of people voting on the name on the first day on many gaming websites and temporarily brought down Gaming Age Forum server. I don't remember seeing this much of reaction to X360 when they announced the name. Peoples will talk about the name for weeks to come and hundreds of parodies and jokes will come out. It's back to "whassa!" compaign from Budweiser a few years back. The name will stick to your mind like super glue whether you love the name or not. What more reason do you need? :rolleyes:Angel posted on Apr 28 2006 at 05:41 AM said:But they've never been unique about naming their product, that is until now. And its super off the wall. Why now, why all of a sudden? I do think the name was chosen just to cause an uproar about the stupid name.
