A couple hours a go, when browsing on gamedev.net. I found out that this morning, Nintendo changed the name for Revolution to Wii (read as in “we”).

Well… It probably a nice name. But a lot of people dislike it. Since it read the same as “wee” (urine) in UK and US.

But it seems like Nintendo wont changed it anyway… here is the interview of IGN with NOA’s VP of corporate affairs, Perrin Kaplan.

As for me… when I heard that name, I’m imagining when we screamed in roller coaster and holding up our hands….
