    So it sounds like Wii will be a system for non gamers consisting of games that the masses like instead of the games true gamers will like.

    I can't wait. :roll:

    Here comes a slew of sf rush games and other games lacking any real depth. Yay!! bejeweled fans rejoice!


    Then again we might start seeing titles like super puzzle fighter.

    Revolution was a much cooler name. I've been slowly losing my interest in the system.

    Nintendo will never die but their last few systems have left me questioning their direction.

    Nintendo makes so much money from the GBA and the DS they probably don't have to worry about the Wii bankrupting them.

    rofl. I don't think so. Napster, Ipod, and Google all actually have catchy and very fitting names. Wii is possibly the worst product name I have ever heard. Who the fuck goes from Revolution to Wii? It's like naming your son Mike and then deciding you actually prefer the name Susan for a boy.

    Dude 1:"Hey man, that thing looks awesome. Kick ass controllers! What's it called?"

    Dude 2: "Oh, that's my new Nintendo Wii!"

    "Wii"

    That has got to be the dumbest fucking name for anything I've ever heard. I'm still calling it the "revolution." Fuck you guys.

    Someone at work pointed out that the revolution remote was being referred to as the "revmote" which now makes it the "wiimote" which makes me want to vomit up pink fluffy clouds.

    Terrible... It has no 'zing' to it whatsoever, and it is only a single syllable :\ that and I had no idea of the correct pronunciation until I read into the article.
