Figured since this isnt the first time nintendo changed the name of a console prior to release.

So, prior they didn't just replace the codenames?

The Ultra 64 became the Nintendo 64. Its codename was Project Reality.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

If they actually called it Café, they'd be disappointing a lot of people.

Person 1: "Hey, wanna come home with me and check out my Café?"
Person 2: "You have your own café?! Of course I would!"

Disappointment. Everywhere.
Unless you actually own one, then it'd just be really fun.

That's the strategy. Remember real competitors to Nintendo are any form of entertainment, even a Café.

Hello Wii Two

Wii2 is absolutely acceptable. So is the Siper Wii ;)

Yup.  And the Gamecube (codenamed: Dolphin) was almost named "Star Cube" at first, which was strongly supported by Hiroshi Yamauchi himself.  Glad that didn't happen.

OT:  I really hope the name does change.  I vote for Wii 2, or even better, Wii HD (confused people be damned!).



Super Wii here we come :D



It will be a name that has something catchy for the end title of games. Ex Mario Kart WII, Mario brothers WII
