Nintendo Wii

Nintendo’s next gen console will be known as Wii.
The console, previously known as the codename revolution, has been officially named ahead of further announcements at E3.

A statement from the Japanese games giants today explained: “While the code-name “Revolution” expressed our direction, Wii represents the answer. Wii will break down that wall that separates video game players from everybody else.

"Wii will put people more in touch with their games … and each other. But you’re probably asking: What does the name mean? 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. No need to abbreviate. Just Wii. Wii has a distinctive “ii” spelling that symbolizes both the unique controllers and the image of people gathering to play.

And Wii, as a name and a console, brings something revolutionary to the world of video games that sets it apart from the crowd. So that’s Wii. But now Nintendo needs you. Because, it’s really not about you or me. It’s about Wii."

EDIT: removed crying smiley now I've got used to the name

I like it. Just think how stupid Playstation, Gameboy, Dreamcast and Xbox sounded when they were first announced.

I'm expecting great things of this console.

Sorry Neil, but the name is ridiculous IMHO. Have a look around the Internet and you'll find that the name change has been greeted with a serious amount of derision.

It really doesn't capture the essence of what this machine is about.

Revolution was fine as a name whilst also pretty much summing up what Nintendo were trying to achieve with their new control method.

That said, I'll still be buying one!

I am really beginning to look forward to this. I have steered away from the XBox and the PS3 but this looks like fun.

I wonder if people still think the name is silly. I believe people will buy this as their second console, whether the first console is a 360 or PS3. Nintendo are onto a good thing here methinks.

I'll probably get one, when I get one is another thing... a job might help it really does look like the console to get if you want that something a little bit different and fun.

Fun being the operative word.

so far the 360 is yet to prove that killer game or function.

The PSP will require a second mortgage for a lot of people and (while not looking to far in to it) is yet to provide a killer game.

Wii, in my perspective numerous games that I'd like to bbuy already mentioned and most of all, a killer aspect with the controller.

There’s still a week to go until Nintendo officially announces the details of the Wii launch – but MCV can reveal that the new console will hit retail by November 24th, it will be priced at £149 and stock will be plentiful.
Nintendo is remaining tight-lipped until its conferences next week, which take place on Thursday September 14th in the US and Japan, followed by Friday September 15th in Europe.

But MCV believes that Nintendo has chosen to launch its next generation console at £149, a figure that falls slap bang in the middle of the varying estimates that have been discussed for months. This makes Wii £50 cheaper than the Core Xbox 360 Pack and an estimated £275 cheaper than PS3.

Though the final details were thrashed out before the news of PS3’s delay emerged, a planned release to coincide with Thanksgiving in the US is anticipated. MCV expects Wii to launch shortly before Friday November 24th in the UK, giving it a lengthy spell at retail in the run-up to Christmas.

Senior industry sources have confirmed to MCV that Wii stock availability will not be an issue in the UK, with plentiful supplies anticipated for both the November launch and the Christmas run-in. This should eradicate any pre-order woes and will be enough to satisfy demand across retail.
