I didn't spend a great deal of time mulling over the whole "Wii" thing, but now that I think of it I find it very odd that Nintendo would engage in damage control before any announcements go out for E3.
With the popularity of viral marketing campaigns, I wonder if this is a ruse of some sorts. I don't mind the Wii name in particular but I do question how seriously odd it is that Nintendo would have to go through the kind of pains they did to explain how they came to the name. It's just a bit of a reach.
The next few weeks should be pretty interesting.
