"Recently a possible leaked cover image of an upcoming issue of Nintendo Gamer has been circulating around the net. The cover is littered with preview information..."
They don't want a repeat of the "3ds" brand confusion.
What confusion? 3DS is da perfect name 4 da 3DS!
A lot of people thought the 3DS was just an upgraded DS instead of a next generation console, the obvious choice would be to name it the Wii 2 but Nintendo isn't big on numbers in their console name (Outside of the 64).
The new name will be the Nintendo: Dreamcast
that's exactly what i feel it gonna be
Though im sure everyone would rather a new real dreamcast.
not me because Nintendo> Sega
I have a feeling they are going to use the name 'Revolution' which should have been the name for the original Wii. This new console from Nintendo is suppose to 'revolutionize' the industry according to them from what i have read.
go old school NEW NINTENDO ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM NNES
I like that.
I hope the rename it, please no more gimmicky names. it just turns long term users off from taken it seriously -_-
NEW NINTENDO ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM NNES :) ima keep calling it that
This would be a good move by Nintendo Wii U dosen't sound very...next gen, it sounds, especialy to the casual crowd who don't know a thing about games, like an upgraded Wii with a new controler. With the state the economy is in the average casual customer would probaly think "Lets just hang onto our Wii, no point buying an improved product of something we already have"....I mean it's like the 3DS, yes it really gets the point out there it's 3D related but it sounds like another installment of the DS line not a next gen portable. I mean we know it's next gen but since Nintendo are going for the casual and hardcore with the Wii U it's a point they need to make clear...or least I think they are, they really havent estalished this yet, to be honest I don't even think they know themselfs, they say it's for the core then keep focusing on gimmicks to sell the product. For example can't we have a normal controler please like the gamecube one (least make it optional...especialy for next gens Super Smash Bros) Anyway a name change would be a good idea.
I think the might make a regular controller... but there isn't really a point. Nintendo already broke down halfway and gave u a controller with all the regular buttons, just bigger. I don't see what the big fuss is about using the exact same controller ever gen... I like some variety... I'm not a supporter of DualShock 700 and Xbox Controller 234
It's now the Nintendo "MEH"
I hope so, the name is even more retarded than Wii which doesn't hold the same brand recognition as the DS. This new system is designed for a tablet controller this time, not some idiot stick enjoyed by kids with down syndrome.
There was an article a few weeks ago that mentioned Nintendo dropping the Wii U name.
Every time I hear "Wii U" i think of this... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I always think of this when I hear "Wii U": http://www.youtube.com/watc...
lol tha was funny @TooTall19 Nintendo PooU?
Nintendo U sounds better.
Jeez, the commentary descended into pointlessness rather quickly. Addressing the actual, you know, magazine cover in question, it looks like the kind of bait and switch that magazine (and comic book) covers have always used. It's probably a padded opinion piece featuring a few previews of already-announced games like Assassin's Creed, Darksiders 2, and Ninja Gaiden 3... You can list "the Price, The Tech, and Why it May Not Be Called the Wii U" on the cover, and then simply speculate about that stuff inside. Their info could simply say that the machine will "most likely" launch at between $249 and $399... Big shocker! And they'll list the chips in the machine and rumored RAM, and what those MIGHT mean, power-wise. And then they'll say that the name might be too similar to the Wii, which caused Nintendo problems with the DS/3DS confusion... So, all topics technically adrdressed without a single new tidbit of information; sort of a catch-all of Internet rumors printed in one article and called news behind a misleading cover. Yeah...
Thank god. What a dumb name.
Nintendo pad 2, with more Wii!
@ the next e3 nintendo formally announces the *wait for it*...............Wii Next!!! /s
The Nintendo Stream, Nintendo Revolution, the Wii Listen (lol), the Wii Stream :D...., or the Ninnovation.
That might work...
I have that magazine. It basically says that there's no evidence that Nintendo will change the name.
"And why it might not " Might. Might M .
wii U +Dreamcast = nintendo master system!!
