Wii Are the New Revolution

And I'm not joking. Nintendo has finally dropped the codename and give the Revolution an official name thus far. I can't say if it will stay but for now is the offical name. That is Nintendo Wii. Wii is pronounced the same as Hawaii. You pronounce is "we". So before you start saying WTF don't judge it buy how it sounds. Wii is supposed to be saying that everyone can play this console. The name is very inviting. It also could be describing as a community also saying that we are a community. That would be suggesting a radical online but who knows. So I know a lot of people probably don't like this or skeptical. But think about it. Does it really matter. If you don't like it will it make Super Smash Bros 3 a bad game. Of course not. Just when you buy the game it will say Nintendo Wii on it instead of Nintendo Revolution. So also after awhile it is quite catchy. So don't give up on it just because it sounds. It's the Revolution with a new name. That's all you need to see it as. Also Wii will be very inviting to all new gamers of all ages and all countries cause it is a very inviting sound and look rather than Playstation or Xbox which aren't. So here is some things that have to do with it's announcements that you can look into: Wii Stuff Enjoy Zucas

Wii is okay once you get used to it, but my arguement is why do I need to get used to it. When I first heard of Xbox or Playstation I didn't think anything about the name. Wii is just too far out there. Nintendo had a good thing going for them with the Codename: Revolution name. It sounded cool and definetly explained the controller. Wii on the other hand not only takes some getting used to, but also takes about a paragraph to explain. From the community to the inviting nature Nintendo wanted to direct to their potential consumers, so on and so forth. Although this may more thouroghly explain what the Wii is it will have some repercussions. Consumer confusion to name one. Nintendo is going to need one hell of a marketing champaign for this one. Once the message is across, Wii might lead to more awareness in the end, but Revolution should have been just as if not more effective and efficient to advertise. Instead of either letting hype do its work and not advertising heavily or just advertising heavily, Nintendo seems stuck with the advertising option now.

You could take many angles on this one. Most analysts have their own opinions, this one is just mine.

I think I'm back on Nintendo's side now. I still favor my 360, but Re..I mean Wii sounds more and more interesting as more news is released.
