It matters because it's like just a letter. Amazing.

Post something somewhere about the Zelda XIII idea and name today!

And the PS2, and PS3 are like just numbers.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

Sure, I'm used to it. But that doesn't mean I like it. I still want them to do what they did with the Wii and rename it one month before release to something like Nintendo Stream or Nintendo Revolution.

Looking forward to: ZeldaU & Hyrule Warriors

Meh. I'll be used to it when I have the controller in my hands.

When all else fails, eat a taco.

Uh-huh. Maybe Wii V with added functionality (of somethings) built-in...

Nintendo Emblem Core (notice no Wii in title, much like no GameCube in Wii title..)
Nintendo U how about?

Nintendo Stream is such a better name

now the new nintendo consoles have some part of the name include the name of the console before it, and nintendo wants us to think of it as a whole new console... "wii" U, 3"ds"... it just makes it seem like an upgrade, but other than that, i'm fine with the name.

I'm perfectly fine with the name but I can't say I'd be surprised if they changed it before launch (maybe just to U?), especially with the number of consumers thinking the 3DS is "just another" DS.

It's silly that that should cause a problem now, especially when there were three different generations of Game Boy. I suppose, as long as the final Wii U design and its packaging are different enough to the revised Wii, there shouldn't be a problem.

Just like how the PS3 is another "Playstation"? Consumers are such hypocrites these days

I don't mind the name so much, since I play video games for the actual fun aspect (making a the name a running joke among friends contributes to that).

That being said, the console still has a bit of time left before release so the name has a pretty good likelihood of changing if they find people don't like it. I do think the name needs a bigger change from its predecessor or else Nintendo may have trouble getting people to understand the console is different from the Wii (the console's current design doesn't help this).

This. The name "PlayStation" is a family of consoles, a "brand name" if you will. The DS and Game Boy are the same thing, brand names for Nintendo's handhelds.

It is now the middle of October, months after the revealing of the Wii U name, and yes I have gotten used to the name.

Now whenever I think "Wii," it just sounds old. Wii U sounds like a nifty new, powerful, console.

If people would stop asking such questions and bringing up these topics, a lot of people would forget to complain and settle in a lot easier.

And yes, I have. It wasn't that hard from the beginning.
