Project Café Becomes Wii U

We’ve all been wondering for a little over a month what Nintendo’s new console would be called. Speculation ranged from Project Café to simply Nintendo. We were way off; it turns out that Nintendo’s new system will be called Wii U.

Nintendo president Reggie Fils-Aime got onstage to talk about how much everyone (he meant Nintendo) loved the name of the Wii, and that Nintendo’s new system wouldn’t stray too much from that. This new system was a game for "we" meaning everyone, but also for "you" meaning each individual consumer. What do you think of then name Wii U?
