Touch My Wii-Wii

Do you have a "Wii"?

You don't. Well, neither do I. It doesn't come out till later this year.

What's a Wii? You mean, you don't know what a "Wii" is?


Translation: The stupid name Nintedo gave to it's new console formally known as the "Revolution".

Jesus Christ. I swear to god the fuckers at the big N like to take me up and down on their acceptance rollercoaster. Hated the DS, but love with some mighty passion their DS Lite. Didn't like their new controller on first sight till they showed me what could be done with it. Now this.

Here's the press release:

Introducing ... Wii.
As in "we."
While the code-name "Revolution" expressed our direction, Wii represents the answer.
Wii will break down that wall that separates video game players from everybody else.
Wii will put people more in touch with their games ... and each other. But you're probably asking: What does the name mean?
Wii sounds like "we," which emphasizes this console is for everyone.
Wii can easily be remembered by people around the world, no matter what language they speak. No confusion. No need to abbreviate. Just Wii.
Wii has a distinctive "ii" spelling that symbolizes both the unique controllers and the image of people gathering to play.
And Wii, as a name and a console, brings something revolutionary to the world of video games that sets it apart from the crowd.
So that's Wii. But now Nintendo needs you.
Because, it's really not about you or me.
It's about Wii.
And together, Wii will change everything.
