Nintendo have decided to call their new console, previously known as the Revolution, the Nintendo Wii.

"As in we".

I'm reminded of a trailer for the film Trois. At the end, when the title caption pops up, a helfpul hint appears underneath in brackets - "Pronounced Twa".

See the little animation that announces the Wii name on Nintendo's official site.

Please leave me a comment if you have a strong feeling either way about the name. I don't like it, but I also don't much care whatever it is they call it, just as long as I can get my hands on one as soon as possible.
