I didn't think anything could dampen my enthusiasm for the Nintendo Revolution.

I was wrong.

Can we say "out of touch"? Well, we know Nintendo can.

Oh Gods! That's teh worst name ever.

"Wii sounds like “we,” which emphasizes this console is for everyone."

Let's consider what else Wii sounds like, shall we?
Wee, as in it's small and weak.
Wee, as in it's for little kids.
Wee, as in piss.
Wee, as in "Wee! we are playing Nintendo! (we are playing with our wee!)"
Wii as in "this machine has a weird foreign name let's buy a play-station instead"

Yeah, my stomach is sick.

I thought "nPlay" was better, and that was an april fools joke.

Its possible, however, that NOA will announce a different name for the american and european console at E3. Think Famicom vs. Nintendo Entertainment System, a.k.a "lets play Nintendo".

Ugh, my hopes of mass market penetration are severely threatened.
