    Nintendo wants to be like the Arby's facebook commercial guys.

    Huh. Is that where the incredibly stupid name came from.

    Wii U sure, but I don't see how the Wii era could be considered rough at all. It was very different and perhaps did not appeal to the typical demographic, but it was an extremely successful time for them (especially coupled with the DS). The GameCube and even the N64 were much rougher times. You probably don't mean monetarily though, but I still don't know under what definition the Wii era could be classified as rough.

    The slogan was at first "Wii would like you to play", so yes.

    Well yeah, the play on "we" was obvious. I didn't realize it had a Japanese root though.
