Why do people keep assuming there's going to be a 3DSi?

My point is, why is everyone CALLING IT the 3DSi?

I mean, going by the logic of "Hey, let's use last gen's naming pattern!", you'd come up with the amazing "Game Boy Advance Color"...which is just as ignorant as the "3DSi."


propose a name we should call it then

it wont catch on.

Simple answer, because Nintendo wants money.
They made several versions of the DS, most likely they'll do the same with the 3DS.

the i on dsi means like "I" as in me like "with the DSi I can do anything" but so they would have to add something weird like an mmo just for 3ds idk

Im not one of those people, but I can understand why they do it. Its cause they have nothing else to call it and want to call it something, so they try and follow a pattern. This is no different than any other system or handheld. I see people calling the PSP successor the PSP2 all the time (you can make an arguement for the Playstation 4 I suppose). I also see people calling the Wii's successor the Wii2 and the Xbox 360 successor the Xbox 720, yet there is no valid proof to show that those are the names of theirs consoles. Yet people use it as a point of means in talking about the successor to those systems because it is a lot easier to say something like "Xbox 720" than it is to say "the successor to the Xbox 360".

Now you may not like it, but that is that way it tends to be, so you might as well just get over it, cause your gonna see it a lot.
