Can we get a poll here? Or do I have to start a new thread?

A Oui Wii/Non Wii poll. Include Don't care it'll be ass/Don't care it'll be fried gold options too, I guess.

hey - i just have a small little member too - and i'm not trying to start a big huge kerfuffle - i'm just saying - there already was a Nintendo Revolution thread - which has now been changed to a Nintendo Wii thread...

would you like to start a new thread in the future everytime the price drops for the Wii in it's lifetime... or would it work to just discuss it in the OFFICIAL NINTENDO Wii THREAD...?

i'm not really much of a gamer anymore though - so i could just be talking out of my ass...



why can't Wii just get along...

Every gaming site is going apeshit right now. The Gamespot forums just crashed because of traffic.

I honestly thought it was going to be called the Nintendo Go (go meaning "5" in Japanese, and this being the fifth console from Nintendo. and you know, also meaning like "Go play something" in English.")

At first, I didn't like Wii too much, but I think it's not too bad. The marketing department has an uphill climb, though. Overall, not bad, but perhaps it is a slightly wiiird choice.

I thought GO was their online srvice name
NGO=Nintendo GO=Nintendo Gaming Online.

Wii is a bit weird but better than some previous system names and almost names (dolphin was awful)...Hell the first time I heard Playstation it sounded like Super Happy Game Machine #1

Probably just the Japanese market name. We didn't have Famicoms. Otherwise it'd be like the PS3 being called the Sony Jobby.

And why am I in the poll?

Check this post from Slashdot out:


"Just like the marketing guy who coined the "Touching is good..." slogan for the NDS, the guy who came up with this and thought it was clever needs to be a bit more in-touch (pun intended) with American culture.

Just like parents thought twice about buying a product for their child that kept telling you how good it was to "touch", it's going to be hard for self-respecting gamers to ask for a "Wii". And God-help us when the 16-year-old behind the counter at Wal-Mart explains to the nervous parents how the NDS will interface with the Wii, so the product with the catch-phrase "Touching is good" can be used to interface with your..."Wii."

I love Nintendo, and I think the new console is going to rock - but naming it "Wii" is like naming your kid Richard when your last name is Head; you're just gimping them unnecessarily from the start."

After much speculation over who named the new Nintendo console, Nintendo finally revealed that it was this guy:

I just can't help but look at the Nintendo and think Commodore 64.

Kick started the gaming world but died in the ass due to fierce competition and better technology and never heard of again.
I hope Nintendo doesn't dissapear completely, but they need to do something to get competitive again.....

Those two analog sticks allow the Xbox 360 to be motion sensitive?

Seriously though people who think Nintendo is going anywhere are deluded. Consider that they have a stranglehold worldwide on the handheld market. Also consider they are the only company posting a profit directly from console sales (even on the 3rd place GameCube) unlike Sony and Microsoft who both lose money per unit sale (obviously they are vieing only for money from first party titles and developement kits, rights etc for thirdparties). Of course Nintendo isn't simply the minor branch of a huge multinational corporation like Sony or Microsoft.

And Wii is a terrible name I think I will refer to it either as the Revolution or maybe the Dubya-Deuce of course who judges a system solely on the name?
