RUMOR: Project Café to be Called Beem?


Yet, another rumor coming out about Project Café. This time, the name ‘Beem’ is back in the rumor mill.

Again, NeoGAF is supplying this latest rumor, which seems to be very close to true. The only thing missing is Nintendo’s announcement of the name itself. Here’s what NeoGAF member Coolio McAwesome has dug up:

  • NINTENDOBEEM.COM
    • Registered on May 24, 2011 through the same company that registered NINTENDOWII.COM and NINTENDO3DS.COM.
  • NINTENDOBEEEM.COM and NINTENDOBEAM.COM
    • Registered on May 28, 2011 through two different registrars.
  • NINTENDOBEEMSTORE.COM, NINTENDOBEEMSHOP.COM and NINTENDOBEEMGAMES.COM
    • All registered on June 1, 2011.

Also, wii2blog.com has this information:

The domain BEEM.COM was apparently purchased on January 31 for $136,000. Nobody’s going to drop that kind of money on a domain name unless they have a vested interest in the name.

Pretty interesting. I’d be willing to guess that this is probably the name of Nintendo’s next console. What do you think? Do you like the name?
