Nintendo’s E3 2011-revealed Wii U may see a name change before its next showing at E3 this year, according to a CVG source.
The site reports that “serious discussions are ongoing at the highest level in the U.S. and Japan” as to whether the new Nintendo console will get a new name.
A new name would relieve the public of any confusion as to whether the system is a brand new console, or simply another SKU (i.e. DS and DSi). As a frequent visitor of game shops, I’ve witnessed first-hand many a time parents attempting to purchase a 3DS game for their child’s DS.
