Nintendo’s conference is this morning – and this news is about a week old – but worth mentioning. The big N recently announced a name change for its new system (due this fall). The console formerly known as Revolution has been renamed Wii. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover! What’s in a name? I guess those truisms hold water, but Wii just doesn’t do it for me. Revolution sounds like a console – something guaranteed to mix it up and prompt change. Wii puts me in the market for some mineral water. Wii’ll see what they show today.

  • I’m already starting to see geeks using “Wii” regularly on forums, and I have to agree, it looks ridiculous. A terrible name for a game system.
