You belong on the blizz D3 forums, it was built for people like you. Like how some barns are built specifically to contain filthy animals.

It was supposed to be referring to 'You' the gamer. At E3 2011 Nintendo basically said that they knew everyone thought they were catering towards the casual so wanted to create a console that was right for the casual 'Wii' and the more serious gamer 'U'. Hence Wii U.

Stands for "you".
Wii as "we", and U as "you".

In Dutch, "U" is proper for "you".
In English, it is just slang.

example: (Y R U late?)

Of course if you have bad pronunciation it sounds like "NINTENDO Y U..."

See, I was SURE it was for "underwear" or possibly "urine" but is the mystery really solved?

Combine those two, and you have several posters from this board!

... and possibly me after a REALLY heavy night of drinking. ;D
Coincidence = How a generation, many consider to be the most entitled and coddled yet, happens to love name-calling and the 'ignore' feature so much. Hmm...
