Yesterday Nintendo announced that their next-gen console, codenamed Revolution, will be known as Wii (pronounced "we").

According to the Wii website, “Wii sounds like "we", which emphasises this console is for everyone.” and “Wii can easily be remembered by people around the world no matter what language they speak. No confusion. No need to abbreviate. Just Wii.” Wii can only hope that the huge list of puns available for a product called "Wii" gets exhausted by release.
