Nintendo said it has named its new video game console “Wii,” pronounced “we.”
Up until now, it has been known by its code-name “Revolution.” As an introduction to the new name, Nintendo’s Web site shows a bunch of dancing i’s hitting dots around like pingpongs balls.
“While the code-name ‘revolution’ expressed our direction, Wii represents the answer. Wii will break down that wall that separates video game players from everybody else. Wii will put people more in touch with their games … and each other.”
Well, “We” think it looks an awful lot like Intel’s new platform — Viiv. Was there a surplus of i’s at the naming factory?
