They called their console the Wii, you guys. The fucking Wii. Pronounced "wee," but spelled Wii.

Nintendo.

NINTENDO.

Named their home console -- the successor to the NES, SNES, 64, and GameCube.

Wii.





And next? Wii U...

Yes?

On topic: Sometimes I wish they'd add achievements to classic games, like Battletoads!

Now wouldn't that be fun? Smile

I agree with MattAY and used44.

Achievements would be great! Very Happy

Wii U the most god-awful name in the history of game system names. Sort of like Ethelred the Unready is in the British monarchy.

Please...remember Dophin? Remember Revolution? Of course not, because they're going to change the name. Please, let them change the name.

I just hope we don't get the watered down fare they've been serving up on the Wii. People already have iPads and Android phones, bring real games to the table.

Blame Shigeru, the guy you all love so much.

I mean, did you expect the name to be awesome? Nintendo started off as a Card company.

Because PLAYSTATION and XBOX don't sound retarded AT ALL.

It's like Google and Yahoo - absolutely dumb names get used enough and they stop sounding as dumb.

But I'll agree that Wii is definitely the stupidest of the bunch. But Playstation and XBox sound like creepy children's playsets or something when you think about them outside of their legacies.
