Yes
No

I dont want to vote, show me the results!
Nintendo have released the name for the console that was refered to as the "Revolution"

The new name is "Wii" (pronounced as "we")

Their reasoning behind this name is:
Quote
While the code-name Revolution expressed our direction, Wii represents teh answer. Wii will break down that wall that seperates videogame players from everybody else. Wii will put people more in touch with their gams... and each other. But you're probably asking: What does the name mean?

Wii sounds like "we," wehich emphasizes the console is for everyone. Wii can easily be remembered by people around the world, no matter what language they speak. No confusion. No need to abbreviate. Just Wii.

Wii has a distinctive "ii" spelling that symbolizes both the unique controllers and the image of people playing it. And Wii, as a name and a console, brings something revolutionary to the world of videogames that sets it apart from the crowd.

So that's Wii. But now Nintendo needs you. Because it's really not about you or me. It's about Wii. And together, Wii will change everything.

Personally i think its a terrible name, thoughts? opinions?

Hell no, That name is retarded! It looks like Nintendo is trying to be all artsy in concept and, now, name. Revolution worked just fine, but I still plan on getting one (Red Steel looks like fun).

I agree, i will prolly get one, but just call it "My Nintendo."

Red Steel indeed looks like an awsome game, Sadness also sounds interesting.

To quote GameRevolution:

Quoting GR
Wii... Why?...
Those who follow the path of others lack the imagination or courage to create their own.
In my spare time I like to write game reviews for Game Revolution.

That's what i've always done: NES-Gamecube = "Nintendo"

Besides, we don't need all this ennui from the Wii

I don't know. After watching that intro animation, I might change my vote. I mean, how could you do that with the letters in Revolution?

Someone suggested that they just call it Nintendo RE, which is much better than Wii IMO.

There have been some quite humerous comments on the news posts about this around the net.
