Nintendo Revolution Name Change sign now

Nintendo, please for the sake of your own company and gamers alike, please change the name of your new console, Wii, back to Revolution. You are committing commercial suicide with that name and designating that you keep third place for the entire length of the console wars. You've done some great things and made some great ideas, you've also made some truly atrocious mistakes that cost you first place, that cost the most innovative game company in the world to lose market share, to be belittled by any demographic in teens or above.

Revolution so much more so captures the spirit of this new innovation. People are for the most part extremely excited about the new controller and the changes that it will bring to gaming and new gameplay. Wii, frankly, is far too confusing, far too strange, and totally the wrong image if you want to reach more people.

We know you probably spent too much on marketing people who came up with the idea and thought, "Nintendo wants this console to reach everyone, mom and dad and kids. Let's call it we, but instead, let's make it Wii!" And they laughed and thought it was a brillaint name. But much like sticking with cartridge, and putting a ban on any sort of violent video game, you will be extensively shooting off your foot in the US and Europe. Yes, DS worked, but that's simple, elegant, and wasn't changed from something much better.

To put it this way, naming your new console Wii, is like naming your child Mortimer, you are setting it up to be taunted, mocked, and not taken seriously.

That name might work in Japan but you finally need to realize we have very different mentalties here.

Revolution is a perfect name, simple, to the point, and gets it's message across and it lets people who have forgotten you with GameCube and Nintendo 64 know that things are going to be different this time.

Please start with the name and make a sincere effort to do so.
