Nintendo Wii
Well, the Revolution has a new name.

Most people hate it.

I like it. It makes a simple name change into headline news. It breaks the mold of just about every previous console name out there (which seems to be something of a trend with Nintendo). And if I recall correctly, the gaming community seemed to universally despise the Nintendo DS, as well.

Although my brain does grind to a halt when I talk about how my DS will interface with my… Wii.

[Update 1: there was a question as to the origin of this entry’s title]

[Update 2: You heard it here first (or not), the possibility, which I find entirely plausible, that this could all be a huge Punk’ing by Nintendo, and the real name isn’t “Wii” after all. Damn, wouldn’t that be brilliant?? Check this link.]
