People keep complaining about how Nintendo changed the name of their new console from revolution to wii. I like Wii. Its different if you say 'Wii' everybody is going to know what you mean. if you say I have a revolution people might get confused. It has meaning The two is emphasing playing together as does the word wii. Its shorter and easier to write and say. Its different and kooky in a cool way. But most of all I dont think a name matters at all.

Wrong forum, i think you were meant to put this in the Nintendo forum under "Console Wars". Anyway, i agree with what you are saying, i think "Wii" is a better name than revolution.

I like Wii better, technically, they didn't change the name, they just revealed it, Revolution was a "Codename".

Im not sure if it should go in a console wars place because the issue is not really connected to a war between PS3 WII XBOX 360. It might be though. I agree with your agreeing with me anyway though.

True but people are complaining and saying they should have just kept revolution.

People are also pretty stupid nowadays, it's Nintendo's console, its the same console name or not, so does it really matter? for all I care you can call it the "Awesome sound and pictures box 5.0", it would still be the same console.
