I know its really quite worrying why they've chosen it! Ah well at least its generated an insane amount of free advertising for them, they still may change the name before its release as they did the N64.

I've already changed my dry erase magnet thing that shows how much money I have saved for it. It now reads:

Nintendo Wii
$253.09

Donations Welcome


I'll just have to get used to it.
I'm still buying it.

I guess the rumors that Nintendo would sell it for $100 were false? :P
