Wii or Revolution?

Post by Winters Thief Zero on Mon Feb 03, 2014 10:43 pm

Before it was officially named, the Wii console was originally codenamed "Revolution". Do you prefer the name Revolution or the final name Wii?

While Wii is short, I prefer Revolution. Because it really was a revolution. But perhaps I just like that name better because it's part of my name. XD

I like the name Revolution better too. But Nintendo choose to change it's name to Wii & WIi is what we got.

The Wii name probably helped it sell more.
Revolution as a name would not make it appealing to parents.
That's what got it selling.

I'm fine with the Wii being named as is, though I would've appreciated if the WiiU didn't have Wii in it's name, but then again Nintendo does put older consoles'/handhelds' names into their next up quite often.

I prefer the name Revolution, but I'm perfectly fine with the name Wii.

Wii was the better name for the system for the reasons Luma said.


Thanks Zero Smile
