Was the little white haired kid a boy or a girl? I remember thinking it was one or the other, and then later finding out I was wrong.

Well I dunno

Any publicity is good publicity. I think Nintendo is just doing what they're known for doing, sparking debate in gamers and non-gamers alike. Their whole direction for the upcoming generation seems to be taking shape. They are focusing a lot on actually getting people together to play games rather than just sitting in your room by yourself. And while neither of those are better than the other (playing alone or with friends are equally fun), I think it's good that Nintendo is trying to stick to their guns of family fun and togetherness. Nintendo has always gone down its own path so to speak, it's just what they do. They always find some way to make you go "wow" lol.

Yes, I agree the name is a little hard to get used to at first but in the end, for me at least, I've never bought a console simply because of it's name. I think it will obviously get lots of jokes thrown at it, but that's nothing new. Nintendo gets poked fun at in the gaming world in general. Still, it won't stop people that enjoy Nintendo from buying their products, and if it does, then I think they are really missing out on a console that has alot of potential. In addition, it could draw in a demographic that video games haven't touched on yet, who knows.

Weird and original ads and promotions usually spark consumer interest in a product. I think Nintendo is trying to make something that everyone will look at want to try out first-hand or at least want to know a little more about, whether they have played games before or not. I find that commendable. I can see though how some people would be turned off by the name. Wii really should see how the games play though before Wii just cast something aside because it doesn't fit an image. All IMO of course.

It's growing on me, I'm sure Wii will all get used to it.

I thought Revolution was a hit as well. Apparently Nintendo felt that the word revolution was too similar to 360 seeing as both mean relatively the same thing. I can understand why they would choose a short, simple name like Wii, and I have faith that once gamers get past the news, the proof will be in the pudding. E32006 is almost here and we will finally see if Nintendo has what it takes to stay afloat or even better, push up to 2nd or 1st place.

News:

*Famitsu provides a look foward to this years E3, including a poll taken of Japanese developers.
http://revolution.ign.com/articles/703/703515p1.html

Some things to note in the article:
-Famitsu polled gamers and software makers about their interest at E3. Both parties were most interested in Nintendo's new hardware. 47.4% of software makers and 45.3% of gamers expressed interest in Revolution. This topped PlayStation 3, which got 36.8% of the developer vote and 44.8% of the gamer vote. The remaining 15.8% of developers didn't respond to the question. For users, 4.4% selected Xbox 360 with 5.5% selecting "other hardware." The magazine did not reveal the number of participants in the survey.
-Developers were also asked to reveal how many secret titles they have planned to unveil at the show. Of the 19 companies polled, 12 revealed that they have undisclosed titles to show, with two listing no secrets for the show and 5 giving no response. Of those with secret titles to show, 5 companies stated that at least one of the secret titles is for Revolution. PS3 and PSP were each listed by 2 companies, with GameCube, PS2 and DS getting one company each. Five companies had secret titles whose hardware they would not confirm with the magazine.

Ooh let your imagination run wild as to what secret games will be released for Wii. Here is the current list of what is rumored at the moment:

Elebits (screenshot of concept art in an earlier post of mine, scroll up)
NiGHTS
Pikmin 3
Red Steel
Mario 128
Kid Icarus
Super Smash Bros.
Hideo Kojima Game (the man who created the MGS series)
Madden 2007
Suda 51 Game (the people who brought you Killer 7)
Metroid Prime 3
New Miyamoto IP (as in Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of Donkey Kong, Mario, and Zelda. My personal God)
Super Monkey Ball
Bob Ross: The Joy Of Painting (oh I'm dead serious, and find this awesome)
Hudson Flight Game
Square-Enix MMORPG
Zelda: Twilight Princess (while not a Wii game, it will be released in conjunction I believe)
Sega Shooting/FPS game
Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Budokai 2
Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicals
Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (pwn'd)

The gamelist for Wii looks good...if even half of those games are released at laucnh it will probably blow the xbox away.

I wonder what Mr Kojima is up to

I hope to God there will be another Zone of Enders..i love them too much...coolest games ever, though the 2nd Runner was an obvious improvement over the first...the tie-in anime was pretty great as well.
