The Revolution's Real Name
« on: March 28, 2006, 12:31:48 pm »
What do you think it'll be called?

I think it'll just be called the New Nintendo.  Simple, clear, gives an image of major reforms in the business.


I'm toothy22 on Steam. Someone needs to invite me into the GS clan!

      There was a rumor going around that it would be called Nintendo GO, but I think this sounds too much like Nintendo ON. It was also rumored that it'd be called the N5, since it is Nintendo's 5th console. I just kind of hope they don't keep the name Revolution. Its fine as a code name, but it doesnt sound like Nintendo. They should pick a fun, colorful name, just like their consoles.

Revolution is my favorite name of any console ever, possibly, particularly because it so accurately describes what this console is about. And I don't think this console is 'colorful.' It's more sleek and apple-ish looking, which is appealing to most mainstream persons in the electronics business. And that's who Nintendo is shooting for this time, the true mainstream.

Oddly enough, I'm worried about the whole Nintendo Go thing. For one thing, it's a crappy name for a console (so I'm hoping it's the name of their Wi-Fi service); and also, 'Go' is Japanese for 'five,' which is convenient with this being their fifth. So I'm worried. I don't want it to be called that. Revolution, please. Thank you.

I didn't mean that the console is literally colorful, but colorful as in fun. Revolution is too serious of a name for something like it (Not to mention, I seriously cant imagine myself saying "Im going to play my Revolution". It sounds way too dorky). They need a name that'll attract a lot of the mainstreams attention.

NGC? Its called a GameCube. Maybe some people will abbriviate it as that on message boards, but never in real life. Gamecube is a fun name. As is Super Nintendo.

...and the N stands for Nintendo. Duh!  :D

i think that they should stick with revolution, its a catchy name and i think that people will know it more being called that than say Nintendo Go or something.

I fail to see how saying, "I'm going to play my Revolution" is in any way disappointing. It's the point of the console; the name works on so many levels that to name it anything else seems like a misstep. At what point does the DS sound fun? Whether you say it Dual-Screen or DS, neither name sounds particularly like fun wrapped in a hefty plastic brick -- but that's exactly what it is. In my opinion, Nintendo needs a name that distinguishes itself over all their number-crunching competitors, that says 'This is what we're about this time around and no one else is doing it like we are.'

Revolution does that.
