Wii can easily be remembered by people around the world, no matter what language they speak. No confusion. No need to abbreviate. Just Wii. "

"wii" is the Japanese language nominalization of the word "we", since "i" is pronounced "ee" in Japanese. It is also meant to represent how the console brings people together for gaming, and belongs to everyone, in all age groups. Also, the two i's next to eachother resemble two people next to eachother.
