As in "we."
While the code-name Revolution expressed our direction, Wii represents the answer. Wii will break down that wall that separates videogame 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?
Wii sounds like "we," which emphasizes the console is for everyone. Wii can easily be remembered by people around the world, no matter what language they speak. No confusion. No need to abbreviate. Just Wii.
Wii has a distinctive "ii" spelling that symbolizes both the unique controllers and the image of people playing it. And Wii, as a name and a console, brings something revolutionary to the world of videogames that sets it apart from the crowd.
So that's Wii. But now Nintendo needs you. Because it's really not about you or me. It's about Wii. And together, Wii will change everything.
The latest gaming console by Nintendo
as of now. Wii allows gamers to point the controller at the screen to aim and swing the controller to attack. These consoles are EXTREMELY rare (it took me two weeks to find one) so they sell pretty high on Ebay
. After its release, Nintendo fans rushed to buy it but Xbox and Playstation users proceeded to make fun of the console, sparking such jokes as "hey man want to play with my Wii?" and "All this gaming makes me Wii-tarded."
The Wii is a fun console if your pointer works correctly.
The name of the new Nintendo system being released later this year. Used to be called the Revolution. This system will revolutionise the gaming industry a wii bit.
Me and my girlfriend played with my Wii all night.
Nintendo's new name for its 2006 Revolution project as of 4 28, 2006. The renaming of the project took many consumers by suprise. The Wii is supposed to transcend language barriers and be easy for anyone to pronounce. It has origins in the English "we" indicating that playing together will be central to the system. The "ii" has a similar sound to the "e" in English and puns on the plural of the first person singular nominative "I" in English by duplicating and thus pluralizing it, whereas "we" is the first person plural nominative case.
Wii really need to do something about this new name they came up with.
Nintendo's new console. Formerly known as Nintendo Revolution. Pronounced 'We'
That Nintendo Wii is the shit.
The new release name of the Nintendo 'Revolution'. Wii is pronounced like 'we', and symbolizes 'we' as in the players, to emphasize the themes of fun and interaction. The two ii's are ment to represent either or both the controllers and the players.
