It's like 'we' because the console is focused on bringing people together. I'm pretty sure it's not Japanese or anything.

Don't you guys know by now that Wikipedia answers everything?

Quote by wikipedia

Nintendo spells "Wii" with two lower-case "i" characters meant to resemble two people standing side by side, representing players gathering together, as well as to represent the console's controllers. The company has given many reasons for this choice of name since the announcement; however, the most well known is:

“Wii sounds like 'we', which emphasizes that the console is for everyone. Wii can easily be remembered by people around the world, no matter what language they speak. No confusion. No need to abbreviate. Just Wii."


Geeze threadstarter, it wasn't that hard

Meh, most of the content on Wikipedia is stuff that no one would have any reason to falsify. And for blatant vandalisms, the Wiki staff removes that in due time.

As for the wikipedia stuff, the staff is ridiculously quick on editing stuff. My friends and I tried to mess with the page about our school, and within 30 seconds it was removed for vandalism.

About Wikipedia...

They are reliable, to an extent. I searched Wiki for a band I saw play the other night, The Human Abstract, and at the end of the article it said "The best band out there!" It's not there anymore though. The article is really short, so I don't see how whoever checks the edited articles didn't see that. Other than minor things like that, Wikipedia is awesome and pretty much 99% correct. I use it for all of my essays/reports for school.

Oh, and The Human Abstract = awesomeness.

Wii is an acronym for "Looks like two iPods wired together."

EDIT: Wikipedia is an amazing model for information, it's submitted by regular users, instead of condescending pricks with degrees and doctorates. It's easy to use, and easy to fix a mistake. Sure, some of the information may be incorrect, but it's not like the article for Orange tells us what an Apple is.

It's Wii.
I think it's a great name. They called it Wii because..

1. It's the same in every language, and everyone can say it.
2. It sounds like "we." Though I suppose asians may say "Re."
3. It doesn't need to be abbreviated like PS3 or 360.

Does anyone remember when the Wii was going to be called "Revolution" Now that is a name for a console.

For the record, Wii sounds like Oui, which is French for "yes" as in "yes, we have been owned in both World Wars". Wii also sounds like Wee, which is English for "pee", because it comes out of a penis.
