    That's funny NoA keeps calling it Revolution in the Nintendo Power Magazine I just got it still has the title Revolution... If I didn't know that today is the 27th of April; I'd say that's an April Fools Joke... But seeing as how it's the wrong time of the month for that kind of baseline humor I'm going to say... Nintendo is full of morons in their System Naming Department this year.


    Wii... Wow; what a devine providence type name. :puke:  No matter what happens I'm still calling it Revolution or REV for short, because Wii is for suckas! :lol

    That's stupid as can be. I like Revolution, it really nailed what Nintendo was trying to do with the system.


    Kinda makes it sound like Nintendo doesn't think the system will be successful, cause you usually call an unsuccessful revolution a revolt.

    And buy two, play them at once, and play with your Wii Wii!

    Damn, I see a LOT of cheap jokes coming out of this name.

    People are making up scenarios that normally would never happen just to try and make penis or pee jokes. replace Wii with playstation 2 and it makes no sense.

    I have never said "play with your" in reference to video game systems.

    Regardless, it does sound odd, I think people will opt for just "Nintendo" like they did back in the day.

    I'm gonna buy two and link them together. Then I will ask people if they want to play with my Wii-Wii.
