We've heard it all.
But now there are rumors going around that it might just be called "Nintendo"
The Nintendo Nintendo? lol

I like it. Simple yet effective. Everyone's already familiar with it.

You know, they clearly stated in '06 that Wii was only supposed to be called Wii, not Nintendo Wii. People still called it that anyways...
Also, I still have yet to see anything that absolutely 100% confirms the working name is Project Cafè. >:V

It sounds almost like a Reboot. I can see them simply calling it "Nintendo" and then when 9th gen comes, the "Nintendo 2" or "Nintendo Squared" comes out. I still think it'll be called "Current" though.

I honestly think calling the console "Nintendo" would be pretty mindblowing. People would just buy it because of the name. It would be a ballsy move. The "Nintendo" could be backwards compatible with ALL games that have EVER been released on ANY Nintendo Console. The touchscreen has been confirmed to be detachable from the controller, so i can imagine an "app" for a wiimote emulator-type thing. Of course, this console would have to be extremely significant and extremely powerful if it were to REALLY be called "Nintendo" but they obviously want to keep the price under $500. Like I said, then 9th gen comes, all they have to do is take a Sony-Type route and call it "Nintendo 2" or something similar. Of course, it would be incredible if they DID call it "Nintendo", but I still think it'll be "Current" or "Stream."

@ZackNormandin: They won't call it "Nintendo". It would just confuse people. If they wanted to start over with Sony's naming method, they would use a generic name. Doing that wouldn't make sense for them, though, because Nintendo usually doesn't do "sequel consoles". There's no way they'll charge that much for it, I say $400 at the most. Even that would be pushing it, unless they plan to support the Wii for a while.

@Rift Yeah it probably won't be called Nintendo, but still, it'd be really akward if they did. 2 more days. Well, like 1 and a half lol.

@TwilightV: I remember reading something somewhere that said they weren't even using the codename Project Cafe anymore within Nintendo. But that's a total "I remember hearing that he said that she said that he said..." kinda thing so take that as basically nothing unless you feel the need to try and find it.
Calling it just "Nintendo" would be an online nightmare though. Imagine trying to search for it - you would get a mix of things about the console and the company itself, and all of Nintendo's previous consoles as well.

anyone else think the Nintendo Entertainment System is a great name? it tells you exactly what it is and just sounds so refined. and the acronym is excellent too. NES. or en-ee-es.
Lots of censorship here...

Off topic, but, why the heck did you post that here instead of making a new thread or posting in a more relevant topic?
I'm pretty okay.
