* Revolution becomes Wii?

Gamecube/Nintendo
It appears Nintendo's having naming issues, but their official site already reflects it too.

The new name? "Wii."

The site explains: "Wii sounds like "we," which emphasizes this console is for everyone. Wii can easily be remembered by people around the world, no matter what language they speak. No confusion. Wii has a distinctive "ii" spelling that symbolizes both the unique controllers and the image of people gathering to play."
"Wii" will have a good laugh about this for a while, I think.
