I feel like a little schoolgirl (and a little perplexed). I've been following Nintendo's next console quite closely for the last few months. Going by the codename of "Revolution", Nintendo has taken what many seem to be a big gamble by going in the opposite direction of competitors like Sony and Microsoft.
Today, we see how Nintendo continues along a path of defiance of the norm; Nintendo's "Revolution" console will officially be known as.....

As in "we."
While the code-name "Revolution expressed our direction, Wii represents the answer.
Wii will break down that wall that seperates 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 your or me.
It's about Wii.
And together, Wii will change everything.
Wow. Crazy and brilliant at the same time.
