Depends on the games.  I'll likely still call it the Rev though.

You bet I'll be buying it, although the most likely time will be the holidays. I think the same sounds weird though. Would have prefered Revolution though.
Ever know what its like to get pwned by a book? Sonic certainly does.

Considering the PS3?  What's to consider, it'll have MGS4.

I'll way to see if localization involves different names for different regions. Here's hoping so. <.<

I'll get it, but I am not calling it the Wii.

(starts example)

Cop: So, what were you stealing?
Robber: I was taking a Wii.

(ends example)

I am still calling it the Revolution.

I remember hearing that Revolution was going to be called something else. Not Wii. This was before the Wii announcement but long after Revolution was revealed. Anyway I don't care what it's called. I wouldn't call it Revolution, though, probably just say 'Nintendo' if Wii really is that bad. Or pretend to not know how to pronounce it and just call it 'why'. Both good ideas. 8|

aanyway, someone told a joke once that as a doctor they would get big bucks treating Wii owners for carpal tunnel syndrome. I have to agree. I still think the controller is uncomfortable and definitely unpractical. So normally I wouldn't intend on getting Wii. Thing is, I gotta follow the franchises I'm hooked to, like Star Fox and maybe F-Zero. If the Sonic game coming out for it isn't a shallow novelty spinoff, I'd have to get it eventually.

I plan to get the Revolution (probably a bit late, as usual),
but as you've probably guessed, I'm still calling it Revolution,
and I'll keep calling it that until Nintendo changes the name again. (if they do)
Only Revolution will get F-Zero, Zelda, and Metroid (and more than just that, of course),
and I've only been getting Nintendo systems anyway.

Nintendo will probably do well, but they still could make their reputation worse
(of being a kiddy toy company that makes simple, stupid, kiddish garbage games
and releases systems with bad graphics and doesn't get any 3rd-party games).
I doubt that they'll kill themselves with this system, even if it's bad
(and the name doesn't really matter).
Like some people have said, Nintendo has gotten everyone talking about the new system.
Although it's kind of in a negative way, this could work out well,
especially if Nintendo suddenly changes the name to something sensible.

<NintendoGuy>hay i gots-a grate' idea were, gonna change teh name to...
"Revolvolooshun" or whutever teh name is;

I bet there were a ton of people who were like "GameCube wtf. I am going to still call it the Dolphin!"

You never hear from them now, though, do you? And why is that? No, it is not because they stopped being downright dumb and started calling it by its actual name. It's because Nintendo HUNTED them down and KILLED them and USED THEIR BRAINPARTS to make Wii.

Yeah, but . . . GameCube wasn't as outright moronic as Wii.

Revolution isn't much better, though; it's about on par with Nintendo Extreme.

naw man. Revolution is a /little bit/ better, than Extreme.

But you know what, Extreme isn't much worse than naming a system '360'. >_>

Heheh, when I get it, all the little kids in the neighborhood will come play with my Wii...

Wait, What did I say wrong? *shot*
Uh... Spank my ass and call me a... Wow, i could really say anything here and it'd still be funny. Time to make or break myself, in a field that seperates the boys from the men. Well... uh... hm...... PANDA!

I love Nintendo, and I'm still getting a Wii, but...that has to be one of the dumbest console names so far, in my opinion. I'm not gonna be one of those guys that calls it by it's codename, though. In the end, even with it's official name, it's not like that'll affect the games being released for it.
