The Wii – Have We Been Too Focused on its Name?

Maybe we’ve been so preoccupied with Nintendo’s next-gen console’s name change that we’re forgetting how good the Wii can be. During the Tokyo Game Show, Nintendo showed off the controller that would come with the Rev – er, Wii. And by the looks of it, Nintendo has really given much thought to the game console, the controllers and – gasp! – the name Wii.

These three will all be playing a part to achieve what Nintendo had in mind when they developed the next-gen console. Remember what Nintendo said about the Wii?

Wii will break down that wall that separates video game players from everybody else.
Wii will put people more in touch with their games … and each other. But you’re probably asking: What does the name mean?

The video about Wii’s controllers makes more sense now more than ever, especially now that Nintendo executives have tried explaining to a lot of gamers why they chose the name Wii in the first place. Perhaps Nintendo also intends to use these the controllers and the console itself to make gamers part of the gameplay, to be part of the Virtual Reality that Nintendo wants its gamers to be take part in. Just take a look at the use of the controller in the said video.


Somehow, Wii is starting to sound okay.
