Something weird I noticed

Out of all the Nintendo home consoles, the WiiU is the only one to not use its early development name in the games' and peripherals' product codes. (NES and SNES don't count because they were named "NES" and "SNES" right from the start)

If you ever look at the back of a box/case for a Nintendo game, look at the cartridge/disc label, or look at the back of an official peripheral, you'll see a letter-number code. N64 uses "NUS-###", which stands for "Nintendo Ultra-Sixty-Four", the early development name of the N64. GCN uses "DOL-###", which is short for "Dolphin", Gamecube's early development name. Wii uses "RVL-###", which stands for "Revolution", Wii's early development name. However, the WiiU uses "WUP-###", which is odd, since it was originally named "Zii". (again, NES-### and SNS-### don't count because the NES and SNES had those names right from the start)

I know this is nothing special, but it is kind of weird if you think about it. Mysterious Destiny (talk) 16:55, November 30, 2013 (UTC)

How is this relevant to our wiki in particular? --AuronKaizer! 17:44, November 30, 2013 (UTC)
I know it's not related to Zelda or this wiki, I just wanted to share an odd discovery, that's all. Besides, it's not like I'm posting it in the main article or anything. Mysterious Destiny (talk) 18:17, November 30, 2013 (UTC)
This would be better suited to a forum. Talk pages are supposed to about improvement or modification of the articles themselves. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 18:23, November 30, 2013 (UTC)
