@moomoo, thanks for the support!

Yeah I agree, DS is just easy to say and easy for people to remember. I think its the first time besides the Wii, and maybe the Game Boy. That I heard parents actually calling it what it was. I would hear the older generation always be like, "oh he's playing a Nintendo?" they wouldn't know what it actually was called. I hear parents refer to the DS all the time. My own parents call my 3DS a DS, figures.

I find it interesting how, I observe that people used to just call them "Nintendo" when now its the complete opposite. Not many people know that the Wii was in fact made by Nintendo. Of course, that's due to the branding, in which they decided to just market it as "Wii" and not the "Nintendo Wii."
