Nintendo’s Katsuya Eguchi explains why Nintendo called it the "Wii U."
I still think wii 2 would have sounded better just my opinion though
Wii and Wii U are incredibly stupid names for a console. Nintendo should be ashamed of themselves. What happened to the Revolution?
I quite liked Revolution as a name as well. They could have gone with the naming convention of Japanese cars like the Honda Civic - Nintendo Type-R :D
or Ford Escort MKII.
Because Wii is easy to say all over the world. Revolution isn't. They shouldn't be ashamed, it's a marketing trick.
That explained a lot... lol I hated the Wii name at first, and now its totally grown on me. At this point, i just want some of those killer games that never looked in the Wii's direction, i dont care if theyre a few years old. I can get over a bad name, a lot easier than getting over no 3rd titles.
I totally agree, although the Wii name has yet to grow on me. I call it the Us.
what nintendo need to focus on is cutting support for the wii in a big way when wiiu comes out so people are not confused.....but show games that takes advantage of the wiiu controller and its a done deal
