See? Not too shabby eh?

I'll tell you one thing though, its been 2 full days since we have found out the name of Nintendo's new system; and I must say that I feel much better about this whole thing already.

It takes time people. I'm sure as more time passes we won't even care about this name that much. I just want to play the system and see for myself the Revolution that Nintendo has waiting for us.

-"superfan" tactics.

Yeah thosse are awesome designs. And I really like that slogan, it just sounds right... BTW those are done by a guy called _SER_ who post at the ign boards...

Do they come in 2048x1536 flavour? My desktop is quite large, you see.

Metaldave said...

I have the link to the ign boards at the bottom of the pics.

Super high resolution wallpapers? Not yet but if you beg the guy on the ign boards to give you some, I'm sure he could work something out. :)

Anyone here, feel free to e-mail Nintendo these pics of the Wii logos. When I get time I'll do it myself but for now I'll leave it to you.

Your image link doesn't work for me. Imageshack didn't have the pic on the page it sent me. Oh well. Check the link and re-post if you like.

Instead of "Wii play", how about some play on a wise old saying: "Wii play, therefore Wii are".

Eh? That's something that everyone can relate to, right? It all fits in with the strategy.

GREAT logos - but i still HATE the name - sure they are shiny and have VERY clever designs - but overall - they still say "wii"

and i say "boo"

Awesome Nintendo Wii wallpapers. It's hard to believe that next week wii'll finally see all of Nintendo's Revolution, finally revealed. I like the new name, even though I was completely happy with Revolution. I'm definitely going to stick one of these as my background picture. Good work guys. I can't wait to see what Shigeru Miyamoto and crew have in store for us at E3!

That sounds good but I doubt Nintendo would say "Wii" twice in the same ad. I think "Wii Play" would be nice with the Nintendo logo underneath it. I just hope Nintendo does something along those lines. Its our job to help them out if they don't.

Metaldave said...

Hey Paul! Thanks for posting on my blog, you never know who is out there watching you.

I WISH I could play the Wii next week like you guys at 1up.com, I hope your site has the kind of full coverage that the Wii deserves.

I'm sure it will.

Paul Gale said...

Hey metaldave, you're welcome; I'm happy to do it. I'll tell ya what. If you come by the Main EGM Boards of Game Discussion during the week of E3, (http://boards.1up.com) you can participate in my Annual E3 Q/A Thread. In it, I answer every single question to every single gamer regarding the show. In fact, you're all invited, just sign up for free for a 1up account if you're not already a member, log in, and get a more personal experience for E3. You could also write an e-mail if you wish to EGM. My feature may be in the magazine as well as online. Have a good one! Oh, and I'll also be posting my pictures and videos online at 1up.com and gamevideos.com respectively.

The thing about "Wii Play" is that you've already got people mispronouncing the name as "why." (don't ask me, doesn't make sense)

Turns into: "Why Play?"

Metaldave said...

All they have to do about that is have a voice over saying "We Play" in their commercials. By then most people will know its pronounced "we" and not "why".

If not, Nintendo just use the cool looking logos.

I think the only real error in any of the designs with the controller 'i's, is that (to me at least) it seems like the circle of the 'i' would be the 'A' button on the wiimote.

Kai Cherry said...

Just say:

"Wii can Play"

Thought that would be nifty on boxes and stuff as well for compatable titles as opposed to the boring old _____ Compatible 1-4 Players" line :)

Metaldave said...

I updated this post and have just sent these pics to Nintendo to see what they think of them. when I get their response I will post it here.

Anonymous said...

Kai Cherry, you said something about saying "Wii can play" to imply that multiplayer is included. Good idea, and how about doing this...

...for each player that can play online add another "i"

2-player: 'Wii can play'
4-player: 'Wiiii can play'

I like the flat silvery one.

Wii Play is too much like PlayStation.

The guy posting with the imageshack? It was just some pic of the Wii involving urine.

Not worth looking at, really.

Metaldave said...

The urine jokes are getting old faster than I thought. Hopefully it will stop soon.

At least when you see these logos you don't think of jokes like that.

still don't like/understand/fathom the name of this system but you have shown a good logo.Logos make me happy, then I say the name aloud,laughter ensues.

Nice work. I must admit when I heard the news (I was away from my computer for the extended weekend) I laughed and thought someone was pulling my leg. Getting home it was one of hte first things I caught up on and thinking a hyped about rumor suddenly turned into utter shock. These wallpapers, my favorate being Wallpaper 7, helps solidify that nintando means business and that a silly little name like "Wii" isn't going to keep me from owning one a bit.

P.S.: In all respect this is from a guy who thought Xbox 360 is a cruddy name. Fanboyism?... yeah a little.

Very Cool Logo's! Hope Nintendo takes them over. :P

Metaldave said...

I sent these logos to Nintendo via e-mail, here is part of their response:

"we do not accept unsolicited game or product ideas."

They then told me to submit my ideas or art to the Nintendo forums on their site.

Regardless of this, at least they saw them and you know they must have got some ideas from the ones that I sent.

Nice designs, not logos. you don't know what a logo is.

1280x1024 would be nice... It's ok with the one with black bars though because I can just change the background colour to black.

Matthew said...

I have to say, I wasn't entirely sure about the name initially. But you can see how well it can be marketed. For more on the Wii, come to my blog.

Wii can't wait!

Metaldave said...

These logos have come in handy, I'm really glad I found them. I post them as pics for my topic titles every now and then.

I’m really amazed with your posting skills as well as with the layout on your blog site. Is this a paid style or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the pleasant quality writing, it is rare to see a great site such as this one these days.I recently came to know about https://avanaaustralia.com.au/, their Mineral Makeup are very effective.
