NINTENDO: “Introducing… Wee.
As in ‘we.’
While the code-name ‘Revolution’ expressed our direction, Wee represents the answer.
Wee will break down that wall that separates video game players from everybody else.
Wee will put people more in touch with their games… and each other. But you’re probably asking: What does the name mean?
Wee sounds like ‘we,’ which emphasises this console is for everyone.
Wee can easily be remembered by people around the world, no matter what language they speak. No confusion. No need to abbreviate. Just Wee.
Wee has a distinctive ‘ii’ spelling that symbolizes both the unique controllers and the image of people gathering to play.
And Wee, as a name and a console, brings something revolutionary to the world of video games that sets it apart from the crowd.
So that’s Wee. But now Nintendo needs you.
Because, it’s really not about you or me.
It’s about Wee.
And together, Wee will change everything.”
(The Nintendo revolution’s real name has just been revealed to be “Wii”.)
Here’s a sample of the variety of colours it will come in.
Wee in England means micturate and causes hilarity.
Oui in France means yes sounds kinda cool.
Wee in Dutch means sickly and causes worry.
I couldn’t find any more translations, but if you’ve got any, comment!
