Nintendo consoles were always referred to as the Nintendo, the Super Nintendo, the Nintendo 64. Why not just just call this one the Nintendo HD?

I wanted them to name their new console Nintendo but after seeing it Wii U really works. Sadly.

You know what? Never have the Giant Bomb community ever name game consoles. They're all dumb.

Wii-Super, or for short, "Wii-S", plural.

Think you had it on the spot with Nintendo HD. Mind, the best option would still be "Bajiingo"; but something tells me that Nintendo have grown past that sort of humour since the release of the Wii.

Wii Nii. Ni is japanese for two. And Wii Nii sounds like weenie. It's perfect. Someone should hire me to work in their marketing department. I'm a genius.
