[News] [Computer Gaming]
You may have heard by now the various news reports (1, 2): Nintendo has revealed that the name "Revolution" for their new console was merely a design handle, and the product will in fact be shipped under the name "Wii" (pronounced "We"). In one smooth move this console has gone from being something I was looking forward to a lot, to being something I'd be embarrassed to ask about in a store.
I can't help but feel that this in ironic in the light of my post yesterday; I'd be only too happy to find out that this is all a tasteless belated April Fool's joke and have them tell us it'll still be called the Revolution. Gah.
(For further evidence that Nintendo kicks puppies, check out the official Wii website.)
UPDATE: Hope springs eternal? (1, 2) Or is it denial? I don't know, "Nintendo plays crazy head-games with fans" falls pretty much into the same puppy-kicking category as "Nintendo names new console after urine".
