Post The Revolution has been named

And it is gay.

News from Nintendo today on their next generation console that we all know as the Revolution. Apparently, they don't like that name and have decided to brand it as......Wii. That's no typo. That's what is going to be on the shelves in the near future. Wii.

Don't believe me. Check it out.

It has the early pole position in the race for gayest console name ever.

I can't decide which is the lamest idea, changing the name of the console or the console itself.

I can't wait to use the phrase, "I was playing with my Wii all last night." and not be talking about my dick for once.

THQ's CEO Brian Farrell says that the Wii is a cheap and easy platform to develop gamesm unlike the 360 and PS3. Says that the Wii is practically the same machine as its predecessor, and that 80 - 95% of the old development tools work perfectly on it. This by itself makes it cheaper (no new tools needed), but it will also mean that there is little ramping up time to make games for the Wii. He says cost will easily be 1/2 to 1/4 (or even less) then what it costs to make a game on 360 or PS3. He couldn't say precisely how much less, because the market hasn't really firmed for the three platforms, but that would really set THQ up to reap mucho profits quickly by making the same games over for the Wii quickly and cheaply.

Apparently, he made this statements while presenting the THQ's quarterly results for THQ, if Gamespot has it right. URL:
