SNES was crappy. I mean, just adding Super...really? Gamecube was kinda generic. N64 and Wii? I kinda like those; they're original. DS & 3DS? Those got the job done. DSi just sounds like an awkward mash-up between Wii, Wii U, and DS. Game Boy was okay.

Lol. You just made me laugh you say the SNES was a bad name cause they just added Super but you like N64??? Would you have liked it better if they called it a SuperN?

Just be thankful they didn't name it the " City Boy". That was a name under consideration because it would be a console you would take around with you, alongside continuing the Gameboy line of branding.

City Boy in Three Dimensions. That would be an awkward name. Can't really throw in a 3D there since 3DS is obviously a pun with 3D and DS.

I don't know any details because I refuse to click a Kotaku link. spits at Kotaku link

But I have to assume the person who came up with that, unless that person was really important to the company, was immediately fired.

On second thought, SNES isn't that crappy, but it sure was a lazy name. But my opinion on the N64 as a good console name still stands; it sounds original, unique, and it worked. Now City Boy as a considered DS name? That's original, but that just sounds stupid (64 might not be the brightest thing, but it doesn't sound that generic).

thats a thumbs up in my book. Most people I know that own a PSP act like it's better than DS. It. Is. Not. It sucks.

Both are good systems but can somebody remind me which system sold over 150 million units and has a good chance of beating the PS2 in lifetime sales?

^I was kidding before, but now I'm mad. Since when did sales determine the quality of a platform? WHEN?! Never, that's when. Take your numbers somewhere else.

I'm completely with Mickeymac here. The PSP is a great piece of hardware (especially when one considers that it was made in 2004), and it has a really solid lineup of games, especially for RPGs. If we do numbers logic, then clearly the Atari 2600 is better then the Dreamcast. That is a caps lock LIE!

Then what do they determine?
