It’s official, and weird, all at the same time.
Nintendo has announced the name
for its next-generation videogame console:
Wii, pronounced “we.” Yes, that’s correct. Wii. Formerly known by its code-name Revolution, the console is famous for its unique one-handed controller, which you’ll be able to wave around like a remote control in order to navigate your game. The name Wii, says Nintendo, emphasizes that the machine is for everyone. Personally, I would love to have been a fly on the wall during that brainstorming meeting (and maybe get a sniff of what they were smokin’).
