Nintendo Wii
wiiNintendo has finally removed the "Revolution" codename from their new console. It is now officially "Wii" (pronounced "we").

I was pretty skeptical when I first heard the name because I really like Revolution. However, after watching the Flash intro on the Nintendo website, it sort of makes sense. The lowercase "i" in the name is supposed to represent the new remote-like controller. The two "i"s together are supposed to represent people coming together to game ("we," get it?).

Check out the full announcement and Flash intro here
