Wii Will... Rock You?

Wii.. A name as unique as the console itself. Still, I think it’s certainly an odd choice of name for a gaming system. Revolution fit the name of the system like a glove – after all, it was meant to be a new revolution crashing into the gaming industry where original concepts are declining at a rather fast rate.

“We” is how you pronounce the fresh new name. A name that is easily remembered by different cultures around the world and that is unique form everything else out there. At least, that’s Nintendo’s reasoning behind the new name.

Most people that I’ve talked to about it are certainly expressing unfavorable opinions on the new name, but it’s definitely getting people talking. Maybe Nintendo knows something we don’t know, or maybe the name will grow on us. Still, I won’t be putting down any money on that.

You hit the nail on the head when you said "It's definitely getting people talking". That is their goal. They also want to capitalize on the uniqueness of the name; companies like Google, Amazon, and Napster are unforgettable because their name is so unusual.

There is no denying that, regardless of what people think of ther name, everyone is talking about it. Like the saying goes: "There is no such thing as bad publicity".

Ender you do have a point there, but i really don't know if any publicity is good publicity. Lets hope so.

Out of all the next gen consoles on the horizon, the Revol...sorry, Wii is still the one I'm most looking forward to. I mean - look at it...it looks incredible! All I hope is that the games look at least as good as the system.

Enjoyed the blog about black ipod nano found it very informative. I found a good website which also features black ipod nano and black ipod nano. The link is great for **uk bargains** including Nintendo Wii, PS2, PS3, games consoles and features famous online stores inc Argos, Marks and Spencer, Empire Direct, LX Direct, Tesco, Next. There is also a chance to play online bingo and try your luck at the online gambling sites available inc roulette, poker and fruit machines. I've also found another site for **free soccer links**. Hope you find these sites interesting - all the best!
