Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: "Wii" vs. "Nintendo Wii"?
A: The first and most frequently asked question — and the official trademark is just "Wii". See the Talk archives (pages 6 through 10) and the separately archived survey if you need the details.
Q: "Wii" vs. "The Wii"?
A: The official trademark is not The Wii™ but Wii™. People generally call the console "the Wii" (like a common noun), while Nintendo prefers to phrase it as just "Wii" (like a name) to utilize its similarity to we (e.g. "Wii will change gaming forever"). A discussion on the subject can be found in Archive 18.
Q: "Wii" (as in urine)?
A: Multiple discussions on the subject have failed to achieve a consensus for or against including a reference to urine. However, please refrain from adding any such reference to the article. If you wish to bring this topic up on the talk page, please first read past discussions on the subject found in Archive 22 and Archive 23.

Wii brew[edit]

Should there be a link to the Wii Wiki here? [1] Atum World There's an Acadia for that too! That is the link.


I have started a discussion about the '!!M' and '!!m' redirects at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2014 January 5. John Vandenberg (chat) 00:49, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

These redirects were kept. Some of the commenters thought that this article should mention !!M, with sources provided at the RfD. John Vandenberg (chat) 06:09, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

Reception section[edit]

Far be it from me to criticise an article which is both featured and protected, but to me the reception section (section 6.1) looks really unbalanced. It pretty much focuses entirely on the problems it had and does nothing to explain why a hundred million people bought one. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:41, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

The fact that it was a wildly popular system doesn't change the fact that its reception was very meh. TheStickMan[✆Talk] 20:44, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
It looks like the section is about 1/3 positive verbiage and about 2/3 milquetoast or negative verbiage. And it doesn't explain much about that very good specific point of why 100M people bought them. So I agree that maybe there are additional positive reviews out there, and there might be an analysis of consumer reception. Critical reception is one thing and consumer reception is another. — Smuckola (Email) (Talk) 21:06, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Wrong sales[edit]

Look at the source, it says 101.06 million, not 101.60 million. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:42, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

I have corrected this in the article. --SnorlaxMonster 07:34, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

Still it's the wrong sales. The wii has sold over 103.000,000 Joey7777777 (talk) 04:50, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Can you provide a source for this updated number? The current source says 101.06 million. --SnorlaxMonster 03:41, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
