Nintendo announced the official name for their new console today: Wii. Apparently it is pronounced “we”. What in the world kind of name is that? The code-name for the console was Revolution, and I really think they should have stuck with that. I still want to get one when they come out this fall (mostly to play all the original NES and SNES games that will be available for download), but I cannot figure out what their marketing department was thinking when they came up with the new name.
