There's a rumour that the Wii U will be rebranded because people think it's just a Wii with a new controller. What do you think it should be called?

I just want it to be called GameCube something, I don't know...maybe GameCube Advanced, GameCube2, GameCube squared (with a little 2 as a pun). Anyway, what do YOU want it to be called?

Like i said before WiiDream or even SuperWii which would be a nice nostalgic retro kicker in the SNES oven. :p
And i definitly do not wan't Wii2 or WiiStream.

But lets get realistic here, Nintendo's most likely going to just end up calling it Wii Me....come on, you know it!

Why would you want it to be called anything GameCube? There's no reason for Nintendo to go back to that name.

Just for you.

I just really like the GC and I think it's a fitting name for a console

It's like I was summoned here like Cap'n Planet. I do love the name Super Wii Entertainment System. That names just rocks my SilverHawks socks.

Oh, and there was this whole previous thread thing... http://www.nintendolife.com/forums/wii2/your_prayers_answered...

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

I have a feeling if they rename it, it's going to have nothing to do with Wii.

Just for you.

I just scrolled down the Forum list and saw that you had already done this topic. Sorry! Oh well, mine's slightly different, but still. I should have checked first...

@Fang: It's cool. I don't know if they will lock this or not but one thing for sure is a lot of people are not feelin' the name Wii U.

The Wii U is more powerful than any other home console currently on the market. If anything, the 360 and PS3 are firewood.

From a marketing stand-point, I think they'll want to keep the name simple like they did with Wii. That is supported by their initial name of Wii U. Nintendo hasn't had a console or handheld with a name that is more than 3 letters/numbers since 2006, and I don't think they are going back.

Personally, I like Nintendo Revolution. It's simple, not as simple as Wii, but simple enough. It gets the message across. It's the best proposition I've heard. I don't think Nintendo will use it, but it is better than Wii U imho.
