Nintendo Revolution Renamed to Official Name

Recommended Posts

Not really. I'm more disappointed than anything else. Revolution was a much better name than...Wii.

I was hopping they were going to call it NintenGo like rumored. Wii's a faggot name. I'm still going to buy it though.

My little sister's probably going to get a Wii, and I'm sure all her friends are going to come over to play with it.

On the ZDoom forums, I wrote
Nintendo have named their next gen system at last. And as Strong Bad would (probabally) say:

"This is just about the second or third worst name I have ever heard."

Think about the initial shock compared to a couple of years. Yeah its a crap name compared to what could have been Revolution, but at one point I thought a bunch of other announced names were stupid when they first came out:
Xbox (Yay a box with x in it)
PSP(wasn't bad but I kept calling it PCP)
Gizmondo (we know how that turned out)
Also I still think Xbox360 is a stupid enough name as Wii.
etc.

Nobody Messes With Adam Wii.

I've said that way too much today. But seriously, while I did like the Revolution codename, I'm willing to embrace this new name.

Unfortunately this is becoming the butt of way too many jokes.

Something I posted on another site.

As I expected, most people are defending the console/company because it seems to be their default behavior. Nintendo are innovating and I'm sure that's something that's easy to get behind. I can't, however. I do consider myself a hardcore gamer-- I can't remember a time in my life when I haven't had a gaming device in front of me-- but innovation only nets you so much. There's still so much that can be done with a 2-button controller; what's so important about games that they have to exist for the future?

I digress. Nintendo have been making huge leaps with this console, but they're not speaking to me. I can't quite put my finger on it, but it seems everything I see about the Wii has a sordid skew to it. Like "old man hanging out by the playground" kind of creepy. Maybe I'm getting too old to appreciate innovation for its own sake.

I guess the most important point to make is that the only people I hear defending the Wii are the hardcore gamers. Yes, only hardcore gamers will be able to understand what Big N are doing. But... hasn't their strength always been the appeal to the casual non-gamer crowd? I feel Nintendo may have sabotaged their sole key selling point by taking a certain comfort from the unhip crowd. You can't argue that "Wii" is somewhat of an alien concept, asking for a lot of faith from the Joe Schmoes of the world, and inviting ridicule.
