I'm also impressed at how much vandalism Wiki's Wii section has taken just today over the name change.  I mean...  Seriously.

I must add this link as well, as I see it as the best parody yet:

Maybe the i's in Wii is supposed to make people think of the ipod.

Quite obviously due to the whole Wi-Fi thing. As for why they chose to have two "i"s though is beyond me.

Dumbest name for a console I've ever seen, but whatever, I'm still buying it.

I don't like the new name.  As someone on another board stated, the new name is a big fat target for toilet humour.  Can anyone say "Wii, Wii"?

I'm going to post here exactly what I put in Lucca's LJ:

I'm actually not that put off by the name. It's got a catchy thing going for it, even if it's initially silly. I'm sure the fanboys and anti-fanboys (and girls) will be laughing it up something fierce. Me? I refer you back to the X-Box and how dumb that name was. "Wii" as "We" makes a bit more damned sense. Or for that matter... What the SHIT is "Wonderswan" supposed to convey?

Addenum: The two i's are symbolic of two things. One is that "I" and "I" makes two "I's", and therefore "We" (multiples of a person). Secondly, the lowercase "i" is representative of a person. The dot on the i is a head, the stalk the body. Letters are often used as pictographs. This is no different.

God, I hope this isn't Nintendo's "Spruce Goose".

Every time Nintendo annouces something, it makes me more and more nervous. I'll still buy one though, and I suppose change is good, but Shit. Wii?
