Formerly known as the Nintendo Revolution, the Wii will be Nintendo's fifth entry to the console marketplace. Nintendo revealed the new name on April 27th, 2006, and experienced a huge internet backlash.
Nintendo has insisted as of yet that the Wii, which is pronounced "we," will in fact be the universal name of the system. It will launch in November 2006.
Angry Nintendo Fans: "OMG we want teh revolution not teh Wii!"
Iwata: "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other word would smell as sweet."
