But now they have destroyed my enthusiasm in one fell swoop. So what could they have possibly done to ruin this apparently amazine console? I shall tell you…
They’ve decided to drop the name “Revolution” (this was just a working title apparently).
The official name is the Ninteno Wii. Which, when written down, looks kind of cool. Very short, snappy, graphical, has all sorts of connotations with wi-fi and iPod and similar tech-sounding gadgetry.
But when it’s said out loud?
Which, when spoken sounds completely identical to “wee”.
I can see it now: “So what console have you got?”. Answer: “I’ve got a wii.”
Oh. My. God.
