I am not fucking with you.

The next Nintendo console might be called Nintendo.

http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2011/06/05/final-nintendo-hd-name-debate-continues.aspx

Of course, it's unlikely we'll know for sure until Tuesday morning's Nintendo press briefing. Even so, new variations are still emerging on the name even this late in the process. The most recent reports Game Informer is hearing, just two days before the show? It's possible the final name will be just a single word that everyone is already familiar with.

Nintendo.

This seems unlikely but could be the start of an interesting new trend...

These gritty reboots are getting out of hand.

The Nintendo.

The world's very first grim dark console.

That would be...
...pretty okay, if it's as good as everyone claims it is.

My parents used to refer to all of my videogames as Nintendo.

If it's something that they'd have a huge library of retro games, that would not be a bad name for it.

I bet it won't actually happen, but it's worth noting Game Informer's the original source for the Project Cafe rumors that turned out to be truthful.

The Nintendo Nintendo? But won't that confuse older gamers, who grew up playing on their Nintendos?

#16 Posted by dungbootle (2457 posts) -

...I kinda like it.

#17 Posted by Gabriel (4055 posts) -

This is how they get onto traditonal numbering conventions, i.e PS1, PS2, PS3.

Too obvious

it's the console gamers deserve, but not the one they need right now

I think you mean Nintendo: Nintendarder.

#21 Posted by AhmadMetallic (18955 posts) -

- Hey guys, how are you liking your Nintendos ? 
- Ima go play some Nintendo brb 
-Have you bought a Nintendo yet ? 
-The Nintendo sucks ass 
-Does it run well on Nintendo ? 
 
 
that sounds SO off! We can't be using the company's name to refer to their product, we just can't !

That would be fucking amazing

#23 Posted by Toxin066 (3260 posts) -

I'm still hoping for SuperWii

#24 Posted by MisterMouse (3543 posts) -

I am surprised it is not called The Nintendo... a Reboot!

#25 Posted by Yanngc33 (4496 posts) -

That would be genius. Old people only know video games as the nintendo or the playstation. They would go even more mainstream

Nintendo HD isn't that bad a name, it fully highlights Ninty's break into HD gaming. As long as it's successor isn't the Nintendo HD 2 etc.

And this is exactly why they would do it. That's their market now, sadly. People who think everything is Mario.

You know, I was coming around on the "don't worry about what a console is called, the names are all equally stupid" argument put forth on the Bombcast, but this is making me reconsider.

#31 Posted by bartok (2430 posts) -

That is a pretty awesome name that gets right to the point.   I agree it does seem dark because calling it Nintendo seems so final. 

#32 Posted by Sanj (2354 posts) -

I actually think that'd be pretty cool.

#33 Posted by JasonR86 (9611 posts) -

...huh...

#34 Posted by valrog (3671 posts) -

Well, it works for cars...

#35 Posted by PrivateIronTFU (3874 posts) -

The Console Formerly Known As Nintendo will be the follow up. And after that, it will just be a symbol.

What do you mean? I had an NES and I always invited my friend over to come play Nintendo with me. That's what we called it back in the day, so I think it's kinda cool that they are bringing it back, even though it seems a little forced over the moniker that the original system earned.

#37 Posted by Rudeboy217 (1766 posts) -

I would be cool with this.

*waits for a video game to be called Video Game*

#40 Posted by Doctor_D2R2 (4 posts) -

So it'll be the "Nintendo" Entertainment System...wait, that sounds familiar.

#41 Posted by I_smell (3925 posts) -

I don't think a company would put their giant valuable name on ONE thing. That's like putting all your eggs in one basket.

#42 Posted by JackSukeru (5906 posts) -

I would be totally fine with that, hits the nostalgia spot for sure.

Nintendo Begins?

Nintendo Revolution.

#46 Posted by Winternet (8008 posts) -

If that's the case, then Nintendo auto-wins E3.

Oh please, make it happen.
