Rumor: Nintendo considering a new name for Wii U

Just when we thought names for game systems couldn't get any worse, Nintendo hit us with the name "Wii U" last year. It somehow managed to be even worse than "Wii," and many quickly pointed to how the name could potentially confuse consumers. Shoppers could see the familiar white box with blue text and logos, and white console, and pass on what they think they already have at home.

CVG says that sources "close to the platform holder" have suggested that Nintendo is considering changing the name of their next console before E3 comes around. They say that discussions are going on at the highest level right now, and that they could be moving to avoid some of the public confusion they saw with the 3DS. They say that a name change is a real possibility, and that Nintendo is keen not to repeat the same naming mistakes with this next console.

Let's go back to Revolution or something, Nintendo. You guys are the worst at naming your products!

What would you name the Wii U?
