Nintendo has officially announced that its unreleased console which was codenamed as Revolution will now be called as Wii. Wii is pronounced as We. It surely is a wiiird name.
Introducing â€¦ Wii.
As in â€œwe.â€
While the code-name â€œRevolutionâ€ 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 â€¦ and each other. But youâ€™re probably asking: What does the name mean?
Wii sounds like â€œwe,â€ 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 â€œiiâ€ 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 thatâ€™s Wii. But now Nintendo needs you.
Because, itâ€™s really not about you or me.
Itâ€™s about Wii.
And together, Wii will change everything.
Revolution Wii’s technical details are still unknown but it is expected to be powered by an IBM processor and a 512MB graphics card from ATi.
