..or rather "Wii".

My God, people no doubt got paid millions to come up with a brand that's a euphamism for urine. I'd have charged a penny to tell them it's a bad idea.

I think my console leanings have just switched allegiance :-(

not an uncommon thing. its lost in the japanese translations most of the time. in fact most SE ASAIN ones. you would howl at the litteral renameing of blockbusters movies.

they recently tried to call the local asylum/secure hospital.some chinese name but the english version was,
private facilites for the Mental Aid Divison. or CLUB M,A,D.it was scraped within a month. as you might imagine.

Sounds like they spent a penny to come up with the name!
