The new name for the upcoming Nintendo system. Pronounced "we", and is supposed to symbolize Nintendo's goal of uniting video gamers around the world. Unfortunately, Wii has been met with mass disapproval on the internet and in real life with few actual supporters, and has paved the way for about 10,000 urine jokes.
Person 1: Hey, you here about the new name for the Revolution?
Person 2: No...
Person 1: It's Wii. Spelt W-i-i.
Person 2: Uhm...hmmm. Yea.
Person 1: Yea. I know. The logo's pretty cool though.

The now official name for the Nintendo Revolution console. A name that is perhaps well-appreciated in Japan, but shunned everywhere else in the world.

One of the dumbest names ever given to a videogame console. Way to go Nintendo.
Mom: "Michael, what are you doing in there?"
Kid: "Letting uncle Tommy play with my Wii."

The Nintendo Wii, prounounced "wee" (Formerly the Revolution). A poor attempt at naming a system, and of course, it was named by a woman.
Dude, let's play some Wii

Nintendo's new console previously known as "The Revolution." Nintendo has since decided the name "Revolution" has caught on a little too well, so they decided to throw a curve-ball. However, many gamers consider this to be a bad move by Nintendo, as it allows Microsoft and Sony to get a few RBI's (runs batted in), since everybody knows what an "Xbox" and a "Playstation" is, and nobody quite cares what "Wii" means.

The Wii strategy can be summed up here:

1) Underpowered in relation to the Xbox and Playstation game consoles, and only marginally faster than the GameCube. Nintendo hopes to rely on the same gimmicky "innovations" that made the DS every fanboy's wetdream.

2) The controller is based on the principles of the NES system's Zapper (light gun) technology, Nintendo hopes to market a whole new console full of the same rehashed shit they've always been feeding us. The "point and shoot" Zapper gun after all, was a huge success with duck hunt.

3) Nintendo has not had a good success rate with flooding their game systems with games, so once again they plan on having a service where you can buy and download old games from systems such as the NES, SNES, N64, and so on. This will help Nintendo trick gamers into thinking they're getting their money's worth. Afterall, it costs nothing to release a game for download, since you don't have to you know.. actually DEVELOP and PACKAGE the game.

4) Nintendo also picked the name "Wii" because they enjoy the pun associated with changing the word "We" in sentences, to "Wii". It makes them giggle. Examples below.
"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."

"Wii will put people more in touch with their games..."

"Wii will break down that wall that separates video game players from everybody else."

"Because, it's really not about you or me. It's about Wii."

"Wii will Wii will Rock you."

Real-world demonstration:
"Have you heard about THE REVOLUTION?"
- "It's called the Wii now dude..."
"What the fuck is a Wii"
- "It's Nintendo's new console"
"Whatever happened to the Revolution?"

The new generation Nintendo gaming console, pronounced the same as the word 'we'. It was previously thought to be called the Nintendo Revolution, but the name was changed just days before the 2006 E3 gaming conference. It was named Wii because Nintendo thought that they should include everyone in the gaming experience, and it is spelled 'uniquely' because of the 'unique' controller design.
-Have you seen the new Nintendo console?

-The Nintendo Revolution?

-No, they changed it to the Nintendo Wii

-That sounds gay.

-Well, it IS made by Nintendo.
