Naming System WII U was a HUGE error.

People that actually defend the name change are almost always just ignorant fanboys.

Many people perceive this is simply a Wii with an add on. The name change is not bold enough to differentiate something different. Like Xbox to Xbox 360. HUGE jump.

Wii to Wii U? I mean, I sorta get it, U is for Universe (though I had to read about that)

I would have dropped the "Wii" and called it:

Nintendo High Def
Nintendo HD
Nintendo 4K

What would you have called it?

not Nintendo 4k. the system simply isnt capable of 4k.

Wii 2 would have been better. Or just Yknow.... Ditch the Wii name? Lol

But... It sounds like two!!!

No really they couldn't have named anything worse than Wii, so they reuse it. Brilliant.

Xbox to Xbox 360 isn't a huge leap....
Neither is PS, PS2, PS3, PSP, NES, SNES
Gameboy, GBC, GBA, GBSP, GBM

any consumer with common sense ( especially in a smartphone world) would research anything they were interested in that didn't directly copy the current model.
