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.
You gotta pay the troll toll if you want to get into this boy's hole.
I voted Danny "DaVita" because I like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. :-)
@Little_Socrates: I got this terrible case of PSV when I hooked up with Mallory last weekend in Vegas.
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.
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! >_>
