The difference between calling the 3DS "gameboy" and calling the PS3 "Playstation"... is that Playstation is actually part of its name. There is no Gameboy anywhere associated with the DS/3DS.

Never called my 3DS a gameboy but I do on occasion just call my Nintendo 3DS a DS since it is a DS just with optional 3DS fancyness. Still a Nintendo DS with a 3D gimmick.

Technically a Nintendo 3DS is just a Nintendo DS

Except technically its not a DS or else I could play 3D Land on a DS. Technically.

But really how could you call 3DS a gameboy and not confuse people? For example:

You - "Aw man did you see the graphics on that new Castlevania game on Gameboy?"

Sane person -"wut"
Make the worst possible retailer an exclusive for a masterpiece game.. It's like putting Rolex into a Walmart."

I occasionally called my original DS a Gameboy when I got it a couple months after launch. I broke the habit rather quickly though.
I should go to a board where people discuss things I hate, so I can complain about them. Please take me seriously!

I call it PSVITA jr. It tries so hard to be as cool at Vita, but will never be.

What you say is true. Unfortunately, people have been generalizing like this for years.

Nope. I'll sometimes call it a DS though. Back when I first got a DS, I used to call it a Gameboy but then I broke myself of that habit.

Nothing wrong with it except an implication that you don't have the mental capacity to keep up with new brands.
