Because "Xbox" is so cool

So, the Nintendo's next system is the Wii. Idiots will be glad to tell you that this is a terrible name.

Two things:

1) YOU think of a good name for a system. As someone who's GMed for several years, I can tell you that names are tough.

2) What system has a good name? "Playstation" sounds like a third grade edu-tainment game; The only reason it sounds O.K. is that you're used to it. Xbox is so painfully corporate you can see a middle-aged fat guy talking about demographics whenever you hear it.

But the most important thing is that the entire name "issue" doesn't matter in the slightest. If anyone makes a decision about this system based on its name, there's really no helping them.
