It’s been rumored that Nintendo was looking into renaming the Wii U for a few months now. However, based on the image found on Nintendo of Japan’s website, the new name may have been leaked.
I can dig that. Better than Wii U.
It was confirmed to be fake rumour. It should be called something like "Super Nintendo" I want a revival, Nintendo.
Bummer. I'll take Ultra/Mega Nintendo though.
Super Wii lol
YEAH!!! SNES 2 would be GREAT!!!!!
"Wii Entertsinment System." The WES, I can dig that too.
Just call it Nintendo Revolution I was too hyped for that.
Yeah what better than nintendo revolution which is a great name TBH
This has already been confirmed to be false......
WiiNES Pii The two I'm hoping for.
What about PiiNES?
Thats my name
It should be called the funtendo slab.
Who starts these silly ass rumors?
lol..what a horrible name. To most that could easily be confused with a Wii. It does have Netflix so it technically IS an entertainment system already.
Even Nintendo Banana would be better than Wii U ... I mean, people could already be used to Wii U, but don' t tell me that this is the name you would use for the next console you are waiting to buy :( Not that a name is something so important ( it' s just a detail after all ), but as a old Nintendo fan I think they could do better than this ...
I liked that old rumor where they were just going to call it “Nintendo”. Nice and classy.
It's even worse then the Wii U One of the reasons people wanted a name change/rebranding is the fact the Wii U dosen't sound very next gen, just an improved version of the Wii. But this.......this makes it even sound less like a next gen console
Why not call it the Wii DS since you know there will always be two screens on at the same time. im also ok with wii u name despite the silliness to it.
That might work for fans that stay on top of things and aren't idiots, but we all know a large majority of people are idiots and they'll think they're buying a Wii/DS bundle.
hahaha, unfortunately its true. :L
I dont care what they call it i just want to play the next Zelda, Super Smash Bro, Mario Kart, and any other games that they already, or going announce for it.
Come round an play with my WES
I don't care just give me Smash Bros. and Mario Kart!
I want a unique name. Nintendo.... I don't know man...
I think it needs to ditch the "Wii", on it's initial announcement I found that by referencing it's preceding console, of which technically was weak, belittled my expectations for the "WiiU". I think something referencing the two screens and such would be better, such as the Nintendo Dual.
Please just call it the Ultra Nintendo (Entertainment System)
Wii Entertainment System sounds better than Wii U. But personally, I think Nintendo need to squash the whole wii thing altogether. Besides, Sony and Microsoft went with a different name for their Next gen console..why can't Nintendo. (this Gen) Sony PlayStation - (Next Gen) Orbis (this Gen) Microsoft xbox360 - (Next gen) Durango Here a start..... Nintendo Maxim Nintendo Revolution Nintendo Gannon
Orbis and Durango are just project names for now. Like the Wii was called Cafe at first.
Heck, let's just call it Mario's Fun Box !
Thats all kinds of wrong right there!
this system will be dead on arrival except for its loyal fanbase that buys anything and all things nintendo. it wont have near the sales of the wii. most people who typically wouldnt buy a game system who bought the original wii now have a 200$ plastic paperweight(you know the people who were amazed with that freebie wii sports game). there not going to go out and get paperweight number two. Even for myself i bought a wii just to play those couple mario and zelda games and old GC games i had but it just sits and collects dust. If nintendo was smart they would ditch anything associated with wii and try to make a real game system and get ahead of the pack.
The WES makes me think of Wesley from Star Trek TNG... nuff said, try harder.
Haha you guys are silly. Lol
WES would be way better
Confirmed as fake: http://mynintendonews.com/2...
They should just call in wallet destroyer or ninmoney printer..I got feeling this will be another camp out 5 days in the snow to get on launch day system:(
Nintendo U -Universe-
except in japanese it clearly says Wii U
Wii Rocket Nintendo Vision (can call it the NV lol like envy) Wii 2 Nintendo Revolution DWS (Dual Wii System) Nintendo Beem Nintendo Streem Nintendo Unite
