VGB: Nintendo is apparently considering to change the name of their Wii U console. What would you name the successor to the Wii?
Wii hu! Wii ta! Wii willrockyou! Wii nning! Wii thepeople! Wii llitsell! Wii aretheworld! whats wrong with just Wii 2? seriously.
I'd call it the...... Poyne Tlus! Just kidding...I don't like the name wii u and think they should have moved away from the wii brand completely. Yes it dominated...but disappointed in equal measure. I'm more than happy for them to blow my socks off, but just hearing the name makes me sceptical. Maybe call it Nintendo Improvement!
Nintendo Yuu (you) Nintendo U Wii Wii Wii II Super Wii Wii HD Wii DS Wii 60 Super Nintendo Wii Station Wii box Wii screens iWii Wii Squared Wii pad Wii need your money people, who care what wii call it
Wiii, yes 3 'i's
Wii Ultra. That way, the public can tell that's it's an actual Wii 2, and Nintendo will still be able to keep that "U" in the name. Wii U for short, Wii Ultra for the whole name.

Nintendo Wii-Ultra is very clever people could call it the Ultra Nintendo abit like the super nintendo but ultra people will relate to it because of SNES and it still keeps its WiiU name i like. another 1 Nintendo WiiRS Revolutionary System
They should name it Nintendo.
Drop the Wii...Just Nintendo U.
UNES - Ultra Nintendo Entertainment System NESHD - Nintendo Entertainment System HD NES - (hell, retro is cool these days)
Call it a Wii Wii, to make it appeal to children :P Get it?
I like the UNES - Ultra Nintendo Entertainment System or the Wii Ultra
actually that doesn't sound bad. Kind of like in 'unison' - At the same time; at once
Shii T only joking, but i wish they would lose the Wii moniker.
It would be nice, but it would also be a huge financial mistake. "Wii" is now a very well known name and anything that has it in it's title will sell better.
"Super Nintendo Wii" :)
I'll call it the Wii U Kno, You know? *club'd*
Call it USEX - Ur Super Entertainment Extreme! Or MENS (Mega Entertainment Nintendo System) But seriously, I like UNES (Ultra/Ultimate Nintendo Entertainment System) or simply Nintendo. Hell, even NES again, or Nintendo gen. 7 Nintendo U...meh Nintendo Sensei
It's been said, but UNES (Ultra Nintendo Entertainment System) is the best name imo.
To Basics...Just Nintendo Entertainment System.
They should bring back the Revolution name, or go for something simple. I like UNES and Nintendo HD. The simplicity makes it easy to remember while it's not as lame as the Wii name.
They cannot use Ultra people......they tried that once before, doesn't anyone remember the Nintendo 64......it was originally the Nintendo Ultra 64. They had to change the name due to copyrights that a gas company had in America...the gasoline was like Ultra 94 or something. So they decided it would just be easier to have all countries use the Japanese name for the system. That is why it was called Nintendo 64 everywhere. If it wasnt for legal issues, we would have had Nintendo Ultra 64 in America! So let the Ultra name go, it won't happen.
ultra 64 was just the code name wasnt?
No it was the official name of the American console, and the Japanese was originally called Nintendo 64, once the legal issues came up, Nintendo was forced to change the American name and just decided to make the name universal for all regions to avoid confusion. Luckily this happened before in launced in America.Confusion used to happen all the time with the NES/Famicom and SNES/Super Famicom so they just said keep it the same everywhere. And since then, they have kept it that way in all regions. There is an actual logo for Nintendo Ultra 64 if you can find it online, it had purple and white letters.
Cap'N can you send me a link in regards to the legal issue, I remember following the news on this. Maybe it's old age but I really can't remember the legality to changing the U64 to N64 world wide.
Wii [R]evolution The R would be in closed in a box just like how the Wii [U] logo was set up.
I'd name it the Nintendo Wii 1.5
i like some of the names on here but the Nintendo "insert console name" # if needed if they keep wii then i would think something more than U is needex. Wii Ultra HD combines all info for ppl to know its more powerful than wii and is HD..imo sounds good=\
Just wanna express this thought again... Cheers Gamers & Happy Gaming!
