I am surprised that this hasn't hit here yet but.... WHAT IS Zii?

Oh no... It can't be another Wii!

They just brought out Wii Motion Plus!

What do you guys think it is?

But the interesting thing is that Nintendo also holds the names Oii Bii Yii and Cii...

ALRIGHT! Lets Speculate!

Wii 2? As in the number 2 is replaced with Z to make Zii?

It makes sense... But I am still searching through Patents to see if Nintendo is already working on a new console...

We deal with trademark stories once in a while, but this one is more bizarre than most. Engadget reports that Nintendo has filed for several new trademarks. The first to pop up was Zii, which sparked speculation that it might be the successor to the Wii. A little more digging revealed that the trademark may be a renewal of one from 2006. Even more strangely, there were trademarks for Bii, Cii, Oii, and Yii. Either Nintendo is planning to launch five new strangely-named consoles, or something else is at work here.
Trademarks are filed all the time, for all sorts of reasons. Companies sometimes trademark similar names to prevent knock-offs, or to obfuscate big announcements and throw journalists off the scent. Since the Zii trademark may be from 2006, all of these could simply be a smoke screen for the Wii before the official name was announced. After all, until April of that year we had only heard it called "Revolution." For now we'll chalk this up to a company oddity and maybe a bit of Nintendo trivia, but we'll keep our ears to the ground in case it's something more.

Doesn't really sound like anything... they trademark names like that all the time, I really doubt they'd name their new console something so stupid - the Wii was meant to be Wii, as in WE, as in people playing together, what's Zii?

I posted something a while back about a new wii coming out.

This is the article I posted about.

Hope that helps in your search.
this needs to be on the forum rules page

This again, is where you are taking my argument and calling it false, yet you have completely missed what I'm saying, so much so that I have said "1+1=2" and your reply is "no, because I'm an owl".
