I think they just jumped the gun a little without actually making sure they had complete titles.

I wish Blastoise was my dad. He wouldn't beat my mom like what her boyfriend, Johnny does. If Blastoise was my dad things would be different around here.

The confusing name is really the only problem I can see. I work retail, and SO MANY people ask me why the new Wii controller has to cost so much.

It's been literally a daily question since before the system launched.

The lack of games also isn't great, but that will be remedied soon. :)

While I believe the name was a big mistake, the main problem seems to be that they released it too soon. That's why there wasn't enough first party games, the OS was not optimized, VC was not ready, etc.
