Wii as in, why the hell would nintendo make a kick ass game system and a majority of shitty games?
Or Wii as in "mom ima goin to play with my Wii" to which is replied "wash your hands before dinner!"
Or "Hey Dave you wanna play with my Wii?" to which is replied with "A large beating with a pipe wrench"
Or To which your girlfriend asks " you wanna play with my Wii?" responded with " you dumping your girl for being mistaken as a transexual".
In other words a system that causes infinite trouble.
You walk to a girl in a crowded street and you say "you wanna play with my Wii?
So your in jail and you ask a man " You wanna play with my Wii?
Your having trouble sitting down, your released from jail.
Your outside and you ask a little girl " you wanna play with my Wii?"
So your in court and you ask the judge " You wanna play with my Wii?"
Your on Deathrow, you decided you shouldn't have gotten Wii cause no one wants to play with you.

The new name for Nintendo's new console gaming system, formerly called the Nintendo Revolution.

After the name was announced, it was met with much criticism and opposition from the gaming community (who, within a day of the announcement, came up with many clever satirical faux-logos for the console's new name).

Pronunciation: wee
1. "I'm bored. I'm gonna go play with my Wii."
2. "My Wii is my favorite toy."
3. "Excuse me, electronics store worker guy, can you open that case for me? I'd like to take a Wii."
4. "Wiiiiiiiiiiii!"

Wii (pronounced as the word "we", IPA: /wiː/) is Nintendo's seventh-generation video game console. Its official project code name was Revolution.

A major feature of Wii is the console's wireless controller, the Wii Remote, that may be used as a handheld pointing device and can detect motion and rotation in three dimensions. The controller also contains a speaker and a rumble device to provide sensory feedback, and can be used to turn Wii on and off. The console also features a stand-by mode entitled WiiConnect24, enabling it to receive messages and updates over the Internet while consuming very little electrical power.

Nintendo unveiled the system under the code name Revolution in 2005 at its E3 press conference. Satoru Iwata, Nintendo's President, revealed a prototype of the system's game controller at the 2005 Tokyo Game Show during his keynote speech in September 2005.2 For E3 2006, Wii won the Game Critics Awards for Best of Show and Best Hardware.3 Wii is set to be released on November 19, 2006 in North America, December 2, 2006 in Japan, December 7, 2006 in Australia and New Zealand, and December 8, 2006 in Europe.
On September 14, 2006 and September 15, 2006, Nintendo announced release information for Japan, North and Latin America, Australia & Europe, including dates and prices. The information can be seen in the table below.

At a June 7, 2006 policy briefing, Nintendo revealed that it intends to release 6 million console units and 17 million software units during the fiscal year ending March 31, 2007 and 4 million or more console units by the end of the 2006 calendar year.1 On September 14, 2006, it was announced that the majority of the 2006 shipments will be allotted to the Americas.4

Nintendo of Canada vice president and general manager Ron Bertram stated that the company expects a million consoles for North America at launch,5 information picked up by IGN on September 25, 2006.6 The next day, Nintendo branded the information as a "misstatement about the number of Wii consoles that will be available in the Americas during the launch rollout," and reiterated earlier statements of expected sales of 4 million consoles worldwide by the end of 2006 with the largest allotment available in the Americas. The company affirmed that they "are working to ensure a plentiful supply and a consistent flow."7

Despite the price point of US$60 quoted for many seventh generation games,8 Satoru Iwata said that it is unlikely that first-party games would cost more than US$50 (GBP£34 - £39). 9
The console was known by the codename of "Revolution" until immediately prior to E3 2006. Nintendo spells "Wii" with two "i"s to imply an image of players gathering together, as well as to represent the console's controllers. Nintendo has given many reasons for its choice of name since its announcement; however, the most well known is:

Wii
Wii sounds like 'we', which emphasizes that 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.17

Wii

According to the Nintendo Style Guide: A Guide to the Proper Usage of Some of Nintendo's Products:

Wii
It is simply Wii, not Nintendo Wii. It is pronounced "we", indicating its all-inclusive nature. The name works best at the beginning of declarative statements. For clarity, it is best to avoid passive verbs and prepositions.17

Wii

Despite Nintendo's justification for the name, many members of the press, online communities and even game developers18 reacted negatively to the name change. Some have expressed "fear that the name would convey a continued sense of 'kidiness' sic to the console"19, "wish Nintendo had stuck with 'Revolution'"20, or even made fun of the name for its phonetic similarities to words in English and French. Still, Nintendo defends its choice of Wii over Revolution, and suggests to that those who dislike the name to "live with it, sleep with it, eat with it, move along with it"21.

A videogame system released in late 2006 by Nintendo. It uses motion sensor technology and detects the movements of the wireles controller, also called the "wii-mote", and its attachment, the nunchuck.
The Wii was originally going to be called the nintendo dolphin, which was also the early name of the nintendo gamecube, but once again the name was over-ruled by the name "nintendo revolution." this name was also veto'd and the system recieved the name "wii" just weeks before its release in america. The wii comes with a game called "wii sports" which, like most wii games, has graphics only slightly better than that of the nintendo 64, which was released almost 10 years ago. The concept of the Wii will get you playing it non-stop for the first couple of days that you own it, but as soon as your wii-mote loses about half of its battery power, the whole system is fucked and the motion detector bar will be confused as to what you are attempting to do, and thereby go in every direction you are not trying to go. the only decent games for the wii are "avatar: the last airbender," which was dissapointing because it was so short, "metal slug anthology", "the legend of zelda: twilight princess", and "Sonic and the Secret Rings." these games prosper over all others due to the fact they are not a series of poor-graphic mini-games in a poor excuse for a storyline. if you are considering buying a wii and are over the age of 10, you should instead go down to the hardware store and buy a large, $50 hammer so you can knock some sense into yourself, and then buy a half-ounce of purple kush, drive down to crazy j's house, and roll yourself a couple of fatties, because marijuana is a much better investment then a nintendo wii.
ALSO, nintendo started changing the first syllable of just about every word in the english language to "wii"
"woah dude, i just drove my wii-tomobile to the wii-electronics store and wii-chased a nintendo wii, and while i was wii boxing my wii-mote slipped out of my hands and crashed wii-to my wii-levision screen, there was a huge wii-splosion and i had to call the fire wii-partment to come put out the wii-ferno that was wii-ing from my wii!"
