Will Wii Rock You? The Nintendo Revolution Gets a Name Change…

April 28, 2006 | 0 Minute Read


So Nintendo has changed the name of its next-gen console from Revolution to “Wii.” Uh, Wii? So far, the reaction has been pretty tepid. And by tepid, I mean people hate the name. There are even conspiracy theories saying that the name is a hoax and they’ll announce the “real” name at E3…

What do I think? A name change is not gonna kill the system. Unless they decided to call it the “Nazi KKK 64” or something like that. I liked “Revolution,” personally, but whatever.

As long as they release it in lime green, I will buy it (notice the color scheme of my blog?). That, and they must have a Mario game at launch.
