Revolution renamed Wii
No, there isn't a typo in the title. Nintendo have officially renamed their next-generation video games console, to Wii. Pronounced like "we", the new name has sparked some not-so-serious discussion about potential slogans ("Wii will wii will rock you").
Nintendo are saying this name change means that the new console will be recognised and understood in any language.
The Nintendo Wii will be Nintendo's way into the next generation console market, with Microsoft's Xbox 360 already released and Sony's PlayStation 3 set for this November.
