YTMND’s of the Week – #3

Posted by Joe on July 16, 2006

Yep, that’s right.  It’s that time of the week again.  It’s time to sit back and enjoy 5 of the stupidest web pages you’ll ever see.

Remember that headbutt that cost Zinedine Zidane a red card during the World Cup Final?  Well some of the users on YTMND have created some very funny YTMND’s about that headbutt.  Enjoy.

Is Nintendo Wii-ing on us?

Posted by sideath on April 28, 2006

Why do I feel like the Nintendo Wii could just be a big scam which Nintendo did to hype up the Nintendo Revolution AS MUCH AS IT IS PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE? And it seems that I'm not the only one… Kotaku did a little feature suggesting this fact…

"Crazy? Here is the first clue, “By letting the gaming community vent now about the name, they will be less distracted as launch titles for the system are announced and initial reports about what it’s like to play the games begin to come in.” Allowing your audience time to vent is not SOP in a name announcement, and also telegraphs that Nintendo knows what a stinker this name would be.

Second, it’s not possible to engineer a worse name for this product.

Third, and this is a big one, there are no trademarks registered by Nintendo nor by any dummy corp in the U.S or over there for Wii. This is unprecedented for Nintendo and it is not possible that his is an oversight. If Wii were the name, they would have registered it. In fact, no new trademarks have been registered by Nintendo at all. This leads us to conclude that Nintendo has in fact registered the real name under a dummy corp, which is SOP when trying to keep a name a secret prior to launch." – Kotaku

Update: This just in from Nintendo on the subject of the missing Wii trademark: “Nintendo has filed many trademark applications for Wii. Trademark Web sites often take time to update, and you can expect the Wii trademarks to appear shortly.”

Update: Seems like Wii was genuine after all. Hey, I only posted his to see what the reaction would be.

Methinks Nintendo Has some explaining to do. And as we still scratched our head, so Game Informer spoke with Nintendo of America's Public Relations Manager Matt Atwood to get Nintendo's explanation of what the name was really about. If it was about anything.
