Can someone tell, why the Wii was named Wii???
Because, unlike the Playstation or Xbox, it's for people who actually have real-life friends to come over and play multi. (wii = we, as in all of us).
Alternatively, it could be as if to say, it's for everyone of all genders and ages, which is true comparitively speaking. No console has ever atracted so many females or older generation people as the Wii, which is why its sales have been wiping the floor with the other next-gens.
actually it's because video game names change in different regions so they named it wii so everyone can pronounce it..
damn, i double posted. Sorry! How do I delete?
I'm sure there's more to it than that. They could have called it any number of things that everyone could pronounce (except the Japanese), so why Wii? I'm sure I read somewhere that it was because of the "everyone can play it" thing.
Yeah sound's true. Think I heard or has read about that to. Don't remember where.
it's because of language pronouncation... i'm sure of it.. and for everyone here's a quote from Miyamoto
"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"
Yeah, I second the answers about its simplicity and symbolism. "We" sounds a lot more appealing to a larger number of people.
Maybe because someone said ''I have to Wii'' when they tried to get a name to the console
Yeah Danny and Superyumyum 64 your both right. The things said above are both reasons why it was called the Wii.
Whatever the reason was I like it...
Short, Simple and Unique
Well actually so do I. People laughed at it at first (I know i did) but it is actually quite a brilliant name rather then just adding numbers on to your new console's name.
becues some one that created wii needed to pii but when he said it he said I need to wii and that how they get the name
I think i read at www.wii.com that they anmes it wii because wii = we just like other ppl said ^^

Separate names with a comma.
