Worst. Console. Name. Ever.

So Nintendo announced the official, god's-honest actual name of their "Revolution" console today. Assuming you don't feel like clicking on the link, I'll spare you the suspense. It's called "Wii."

That's pronounced "We," as in "We think this is one of the stupidest names for a console in the entire history of video games." This is one of those times where you smack your head and wonder what the hell people were thinking and should they be fired?

Chris Morris at CNN offers his thoughts on the name change here. Nice to know I'm not alone in my opinion.

I'm still calling this thing "Revolution."
