Nintendo considering changing the name of the Wii U?
Rumor has it that Nintendo is considering a name change for their next home console, the Wii U (as the name currently stands).

Tomb Raider is not coming to Wii U, developer explains why
With the Wii U supposedly getting a plethora of titles previously deemed only for its HD counterparts, it was just a matter of time until Nintendo fans got the news that the hotly anticipated return of Lara Croft gets announced for the Wii U. Sadly, this is not the case, yet only for what seems to be a good reason (or a well-worded excuse). Here is what the developers had to say:
“If we started building a game for the Wii U we would build it very differently and we would build it with unique functionality. When we started developing the game we made a conscious decision that it was all about building the game for a platform and making sure the game was specific to that platform. Given that we’ve been working on the game quite a while before Wii U was announced I think it would not be right to try and port it across.” – Crystal Dynamics community manager Meagan Marie
