Wii Warm Up: So how is the name?


Once upon a time, the Wii was known as the Revolution, and it was good. Then Nintendo announced that the console's real name would be Wii, and the backlash rocked the media and gaming community.

Also, there were a lot of anatomical jokes.

But here we are, not quite a year later, basking in the success of the new system ... when we can stop playing it, that is. We've had a little time to get used to the new name, but we have to ask -- how is it? Do you like "Wii" now? Does it suit the system? Or has the Wii succeeded thus far in spite of the name?

We also recommend going back and looking at the comments on that old post, as they're certain to make interesting reading alongside what is said here today.
