I think that would be a good idea.
Don't see it happening, but I would definitely be on-board with a name change.

i thought the best name for it wud of been the 'Wii HD'

SIMPLE BUT EFFECTIVE

The unfortunate thing with "Wii HD" is it's still confusing. Is it a Wii that does HD or an entirely new console?

I think they should go with something a little new. Or if they absolutely have to use the Wii moniker, at least add a subtitle that more than certainly differentiates it from its predecessor.

i think everyone would like a name change but its not gonna happen.

this is the best wiiu news all year. i hate the look and name of the wiiu at the moment. they need to redign the entire thing.

the reveal at e3 last year was a disaster.

they need to distance wiiu as far as possible from that disaster, or else wiiu will always be remembered in that way

The "disaster" that was the best selling and most profitable console this generation?

The disaster he's referring to was the reveal at e3. If I remember correctly, didn't people groan when they announced the name? He didn't say anything about the wii.

Disccordia2425d ago

ah yes, looking back you are probably right, my apologies

brettyd2427d ago

they should kill the "wii" thing all together.
