Nintendo Buys Up Domains for WiiUWare, Wii U Sports and More
Posted by James Newton
It's all coming up Wii U
The best thing about Nintendo's new console being called Wii U is it's easy for the company to think up domain names. The latest batch below show the Big N has gone all-out to register several high-profile domains, and although they're not all likely to be used there are some interesting registrations.
WiiUWare.com is one of the more interesting names, particularly as Nintendo registered a trademark for 3DSWare but not the domain name 3DSware.com. While the company seems keen to move away from "Ware" as a suffix for its downloadable games — 3DSWare doesn't exist as a brand in Nintendo's eyes — it's not out of the realms of possibility the company could continue its WiiWare groundwork with a follow-up.
The list also contains many high-profile Wii games with a U suffix, which will surprise nobody. Will we see Wii U Sports and Wii U Fit in future?
