Nintendo has finally revealed the name for it’s next gen gaming machine that was known as the Revolution: Nintendo Wii……
Erm maybe you need an explanation? Well here it is from the official Wii site:
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.
I’ve got a few different emotions running through me at the moment. One of them is laughter. The other is it makes sense….
I could easily make a joke about urine but I think I’ll stay well clear of that area. At least they haven’t made claims about being the centre of the universe…
