Which name is worse?

#3 Posted by phish09 (1112 posts) -

Playstation.  It still sounds like a toy you would buy for a 2 year old to me. 

#4 Posted by PrivateIronTFU (3858 posts) -

I don't like either of them. But all I can think of when I hear Vita is hot, melted processed cheese.

Yeah...I'd pour some canned chili in that and crack a bag of doritos.

Yeah, but for some reason, I don't wanna eat it.

I voted Danny "DaVita" because I like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.  :-)

#8 Posted by Ghostiet (5565 posts) -

Both. "Vita" makes me thing of pills I eat for stomach illnesses, "Wii U" is just... Ugh.

#9 Posted by SoldierG654342 (1863 posts) -

I can just say "PSV" in a pinch. There's no real way around WiiU. 

#10 Posted by zityz (2366 posts) -

Vita at least rolls off the tongue better. Wii U sounds like a school. Either way they will sell assloads so who cares. I'm interested in both, which is surprising because I haven't cared for a Playstation product in quite some time.

...and that makes the "Wii U"...what?

#12 Posted by onarum (2519 posts) -

WiiU takes the prize on this one, god I really hoped they would call it the Nintendo.

#13 Edited by AP3 (50 posts) -

Equally bad. Neither rolls off the tongue well.
 
Though I suppose PSV sounds alright. Nothing can be said for Wii U.

A clown college perhaps?

Just wait for 'Mii Wii U 2'

#16 Posted by ajamafalous (12392 posts) -

Wii U is really the worst name for anything I've ever heard ever.

Vita is fine, and PSV is no different than PSP or PS3.

#17 Posted by dougmansion (144 posts) -

I just can't stop thinking of Kung Pow Enter the Fist when I see WiiU:

Going with Wii U, makes me think of The Dover Boys of Pimento University.

Also, PSV would be even worse than the PSVita, as it still sounds like a sexually transmitted disease or European super-minivan.

Going to refer to them in speech as the NGP and the Wii U, because I can't come up with anything that would correctly identify the Wii U and because nobody who will know what a PSVita is won't know what an NGP is.

This quote takes me back to 1995.

Good times

You gotta pay the troll toll if you want to get into this boy's hole. 
 
@Little_Socrates: I got this terrible case of PSV when I hooked up with Mallory last weekend in Vegas.
#22 Edited by Wakeman (8 posts) -

Nintendo, pretty much for not dropping the Wii name and then adding that awful "You can totally also be spelled as U" thing.
As for the PSV, Vita is Italian for 'life', really not that bad in my opinion.

#23 Edited by Beforet (2989 posts) -

WiiU. At least with Vita I can shorten it to PSV and pretend that's just the name. Can't do that with the WiiU.

Edit: Wait a minute.

Playstation

Playstation 2

Playstation 3

Playstation Portable

Playstation Vita, or PSV. Playstation 5

Holy shit it's BRILLIANT

@Beforet: But the Wii U is the shortened version of the entire name! No need to force it into an acronym or anything!
#25 Posted by ThePickle (4266 posts) -

Wii U is the worst name for anything ever.

#26 Posted by EVO (4027 posts) -

How do you pronounce Vita? Is it like Visa, or vitamin?

#27 Posted by Natedogg2 (478 posts) -

You laugh now, but this will happen.
 
Wii U Bowl -> U Wii Bowl -> Uwe Boll

#28 Posted by Herocide (447 posts) -

Vita makes me think of a fruit smoothie. Wii U is just, I don't even know.

#29 Posted by s7evn (1067 posts) -

WiiU is a terrible name.

#30 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6805 posts) -

How can you not say WiiU?  That's the dumbest shit ever.  At least Vita is kind of like a cell phone name.

WU

#32 Posted by bwooduhs (1679 posts) -

The Vita because im sold on it already

#33 Posted by Hot_Karl (3321 posts) -
@EVO: It's pronounced "Vee-tah", like "cheetah" but with a Vee instead of a chee. 
 
@Enigma777: I hope we as a society don't get so lazy as to not want to write out 4 letters (Wii U) as opposed to two (WU)
#34 Posted by Getz (3344 posts) -

Wii U wins outs just ever so slightly, because in addition to being dumb, it's lazy AND confusing. Vita is just dumb; at least it sounds like they put some thought in to it.

#35 Posted by EVO (4027 posts) -
@VinceNotVance: Thanks, I've been wondering for days.
#36 Posted by FierceDeity (364 posts) -

Imagine if they had instead called it the "Wii G". Then it could have 3G capability. = )

#37 Posted by Gabriel (4129 posts) -

I clicked on Danny Davita, but come on Wii U.

#38 Edited by Icemael (6795 posts) -

Playstation Vita is a horrible name. Like, really, really horrible. It sounds like a skin lotion for 35+ women, or a brand of sparkling water. 

But Wii U. Wii fucking U. Jesus Christ.

Vita is a pretty alright name; the Wii U is a pretty shitty name.

#44 Edited by Captain_Felafel (1693 posts) -

They're both kind of incidental to the product and don't mean ANYTHING. But at least Vita follows a familiar Sony naming-scheme of "slick" sounding words that don't really mean anything, but aren't at the same time absolutely insane. The Wii U is insane.

#45 Posted by L1GHTN1N (737 posts) -

Vita is growing on me, I don't think I'll ever get used to Wii U. Instead I propose we call the Woo. Easier to say and and doesn't sound as ridiculous. 

#46 Posted by TheVeteran13 (1264 posts) -
@Enigma777: When ever I hear Wii U I think of someone with a lisp saying Ryu
#47 Posted by Bucketdeth (8234 posts) -

Shit I picked Vita without reading. Vita sounded bad at first  but after hearing WiiU, Vita sounds great.

#48 Posted by AndrewB (7782 posts) -

Sony didn't deliver with their last portable, and Nintendo with their last console. Both have something to prove to me before I decide anything about either. 

#49 Edited by Strife777 (1715 posts) -

As much as PS Vita sounds like some sort of yoga class or healthy milk product, Wii U is simply fucking horrible. It just seems like there is no way to pronouce it properly. With the other, you can atleast say PSV or something.

#50 Posted by ImperiousRix (3095 posts) -

I think the WiiU is a much worse name for a couple of reasons.  For one, the name "Wii" at least had some kind of connotation with what the system was; an all-inclusive experience that "WE" could enjoy.  But what the fuck is WiiU supposed to mean?  Secondly... it sounds like you're attempting to make siren noises every time you say it. 
 
The Vita isn't that bad.  It is a very feminine sounding name, which I feel is weird, but what-evs.  Not to mention, I refuse to stop calling it the "VITE-UH", as in Vitamins... because that's what I'd been calling it since the name first appeared.  I still insist I'm right!  >_>
