Name Change on the Way?



“We have received over 200,000 e-mails with complaints about the Wii, and the console name has been commonly associated with urine. We have been the target of many jokes, and we strongly believe that it’s a bad thing for the company’s reputation.” from a Nintendo Marketer

Nintendo has changed console names before at the last minute. Specifically, Project Reality - Ultra 64 - Nintendo 64. Could there be another name change on the way. Nintendo has said that Wii is final, but with all the jokes going rampant and many complaints could they fold?

How do you feal about the Wii name? Post a comment and discuss.

At first I was shocked and perturbed and al my friends made fun of it but it just kinda rubs off on you and you get used to it. I think Nintendo's big problem will be publicly unveiling the name "Wii" to the mass audience. they need to do it well before launch, like NOW.

Yes, the name can be a potential problem, hopefully the jokes will wear off.
