Yahoo! Hooray! Wii!

Wii (wee) excl.
1. An exclamation typically uttered by retarded persons when falling from great heights.
2. The pathetically rediculous name given by Nintendo to their latest gaming console.

The new Nintendo console (previously codenamed the Revolution) is now officially named the "Wii".

It must mean something really cool in Japanese. Because it sounds really lame in English.

Really, why couldn't they have just named it the Revolution and left it at that? It's one of the most innovative gamig consoles ever invented; "Wii" just doesn't cut it. It couldn't have been perfect. There had to be a catch somewhere.

The Wii has an impressive features list surpassing both the PlayStation 3 and the XBox 360.

But seriously, it has an incredible controller, a huge library of games to choose from, a great list of series including Zelda, Mario, and Metroid that will all have games on it, and free Wi-Fi and internet capability built-in. But why does it have to be named the "Wii"?

So, for this post, instead of you posting your comments below, I'm starting a contest: post any name you can think of that would have been lamer than "Wii" (no fair borrowing ideas from Sony or Microsoft). Start posting!
