The Revolution is for Us... Or Wii

| | Comments (0)
This morning, Nintendo announced that its next console will be called "Wii."
The Wii, formerly known as "Revolution," is pronounced "We." Nintendo proclaimed that the new name indicates that the console is for everyone and points out that the two "i" characters in the name suggest both the unit's controllers and two people gathering to play together. Fortunately, the console should be ultimately judged on its games, not its name. Unfortunately, we're worried about what you call it when two of Nintendo's upcoming consoles are networked together.
