The "official" name of the Revolution, straight from Nintendo.

Well as long as it's not "Nintendo Freestyle." Don't matter as I will buy it either way.

So do you guys plan on buying one? Based on what I've seen so far, I'll have one at launch. I really dig the whole price point of the system (if its $200 as rumored). I hope Sega dedicates a lot of their talent to the system as it seems like the ideal environment for Sega to get their reputation as an innovator back. *gets wet*

I'm still fairly onboard... There are a few Gamecube games i wanna get, so $200 for a backwards compatable, retrofriendly, adequately powerful system with a kickass controller... Still sounds good.

I liked the name Go that was being bandied about as its 'real name' personally... but I can see what their thinking was behind having it short and easy to remember, especially if theyre chasing the 'casual' market.

Personally I like the name. It's not going for that stupid "extreme" feel and it's sorta fun to say. :)

Of course I'm still on painkillers so pretty much any funny noise will make me laugh...

Im still kinda thrown off by the controller. I mean yea its something cool and new but it seems to me that the types of games youll be able to play with the controller is small. Just seems like a fps overload to me.

I know at least two people who must have loved this name... namely, Bill Gates and Ken Kutaragi. Hey, it's not every day that a rival commits suicide! :(

Thats a feature they kept quiet, is there a slot for inserting 5 dorrah?

I just saw this on another site, and needless to say, I was shocked. No, seriously, is Nintendo out of their f**king minds? As if they needed anything else to hurt sales, now they are trying to market it with a name that many people won't know how to say. Hell, when I first read it, I thought it was pronounced 'why', which would have more accurately reflected how I felt about this absurd name.

personally, I liked the old name. But this weird name change isn't going keep me from buying one. I'm still excited about its impending release..and about Nintendo FINALLY releasing the new Zelda game..it seemed like forever, and I was afraid it would be canceled and then moved to the revo.

I'm not a fan of the name, but a name doesn't sell a system, its features and games do, and this has a ton of awesome features, and pretty much unlimited games, that will make it sell.
OOH! YA! Duffman Says a lot of things.
