So Nintendo's "Project Revolution" has been officially christened the Wii. Equal parts pretentious and silly, the new name has seen a tremendous backlash from Nintendo fans in the last twelve hours. Pronounced like a nearly universal word for "urine", the name has also sparked a tidal wave of juvenile humor not seen since the discovery of the shuttlecock.

What are my thoughts? It's stupid -- and I mean really, really stupid -- but it'll do. I'm not clinging to any hopes for a last-second name change; the damage has already been done.

Is it worth giving up as a Nintendo fan? Well, there were still Star Wars fans after that whole "Attack of the Clones" fiasco.
