An IGN editor made some observations I thought were interesting on their podcast. He basically said that the name Wii looks great as a logo but it still doesnt ring well for a consumer electronics product. Actually though, Wii wouldnt be a bad name for the future download/online network Nintendo will introduce. The Wii Network...see that actually sounds okay. The inclusive nature of the name actually makes sense in that scenario. You wouldnt need to explain something like that so much to consumers.

Sigh....still cant get used to it for a console.

Someone said this might be a publicity stunt. I dunno, that doesn't sound very 'Nintendo', but this is an (apparent) serious screw-up on their part. Maybe they really will expose the real name later on...it would help with all the competition they're up against.

If this was announced on the 1st of the month, I would think publicity stunt. But, with E3 being just a few weeks away, I kinda doubt it is.
