Maybe it's just a name and people need to get over it? Honestly, some of the posts on this thread baffle me.

I'm sure someone mentioned, but I'm going to go through an additional 10 pages.

In my books, "Wii-U", is much better than "Nintendo-64" which could easily be nominated for the worst name.
They just slapped some numbers onto their company name.

I don't concern myself with names though. Super Mario 3D land was awkward to say, but fun to play.

Who cares what they call it, as long as it's fun.

Thaaaaaanks for noticin' me.

I love the name. For the most part all console names are stupid. Wii U let's consumers know its different than the Wii, and that's all it needs.

Even after many moons have passed I still think that Wii U is the worst system name in history.

Ehhh, I'd still say XBOX and the XBOX 360 are the worst console names known to man, but Wii U no doubty' is right behind them. Nintendo should of resurrected the name "Neptune' from Sega's attempt at combining the Sega CD & 32 X into one console. Nintendo Neptune Ahhhh, how sweet it tis' Still, I'd opt for WiiDream.

@Waveboy: I think Neptune and WiiDream would be much better!

I think they should have used the Revolution name from the Wiis development name.

Well he has a point, it was a really long name and the shortened version doesn't incite awesomeness. However "Wii U" is just awful... police siren much?

There was a rumor a while back(proved wrong) that the Wii U was going to be renamed the Wii Entertainment System. BLECH. Yeah, there could've been wose names. But I think the Wii U correctly conveys a more personal expirience, like intended. I think that for now, it's fine. But I won't show so much mercy if there is another Wii. Nintendo needs something that doesn't say "family," but HAS family games. A mixture, if you will.
