Exactly. If they're going to choos anything out of the ordinary, it's going to sound strange at first.

I don't like this name, doesn't really seem to fit a game console. "I'm going to play my Wii" is just going to sound strange.

In order to make it through the world one needs some insanity.

"I'm going to play my Genesis."

"I'm going to play my Atari."

"I'm going to play my DS."

These only sound normal because you've heard them so long.

I dont really like the name. I think that a lot of people would have liked it better if nintendo had announced it sooner. We've been calling the Wii Revolution for over a year now, and most people are still gonna call it that.

Also, if I say "Im gonna play my Wii" some of my friends are gonna make gross remarks. :laugh:

I've tried to get used to this name, but I cant. Its just not that good of a name.

Plus, i've been trying to my friends to want one. How am I supposed to do that with a name like Wii?

I just hope that they reveal that it was all a big joke at E3. Or, at least say that they changed  the name back to Revolution due to the bad reaction.

The trademark surfaces:

This probably means that Wii isn't just a hype setter. But, it still might. I hope Revolution comes back.
