User:Wii Owner 3.14/The Wiire
Category:Companies Category:Video game websites Category:Media The Wiire (www.thewiire.com) is a Web site dedicated to news about the Nintendo Wii. It includes a podcast, frequent news articles, reviews, and a forum.
The Wiire was founded by Ian Mikutel in May 2005. At that point, it bore the name "Revolution Report: The first site dedicated to the Nintendo Revolution." The original site, www.revolutionreport.com, sported an acclaimed Flash intro and most of the current features. Upon the Revolution-to-Wii name change in 2006, the site's name was changed to "The Wiire: Your connection to the Nintendo Wii," and has remained so ever since. Since their debut, the site, its boards, and its podcast have remained free of charge.
