Nintendo 64 was a good name. Simple and explain that the console has 64 bit.
Nintendo Gamecube was a great name. It's a cube, it plays games.
Nintendo Entertainment System is a bit over the top. But the abbreviation NES is great.
Nintendo Super Entertainment System is the same. SNES works.

Wii and Wii U is infantile, and you can barely say the words as an adult without feeling ill.
And there is no room for a practical cool abbreviation. I mean even kids over age 7 will be able to point out the cringing cuteness of those names.

It's simply a massive fail.


Agree 100%!!! My favorite post in this thread by far.. :)

"You can barely say the words as an adult without feeling ill" nailed it!

Glad to know someone thinks like me!

Because "Playstation" doesn't sound kiddy at all!

Mega Man Powered Up is the best PSP exclusive and you know it.

Microsoft and Sony sure knew how to name their products..

Playstation. Nothing else needs to be said.
They made a moon base to survey my standards but they have yet to make visual contact.
