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.

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!).
