What's in a name? The console name game?

A general rant and questioning as to why current consoles have such stupid names. (3DS, Next-Gen, PS Vita, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Then you come up with better names and leave it at that. I could give a crap what my hardware is named.

All I care about is what it does. Here is my rant as to why you waste your time caring about such pointless issues.

The only reason it was called the Xbox 360 was because it was going up against the PlayStation 3. It couldn't be Xbox 2 vs. PlayStation 3 since normal people would just assume the 3 is better. I actually think that was a great strategy.

I guess I don't really get what the author is trying to say. Sometimes console names are good and sometimes they're not, but that's the same as cars, or movies, or any other product that has multiple iterations. Yeah the Wii U name is bad but Nintendo needs to capitalize on the Wii brand. Maybe a list of worst and best named consoles would make an interesting article.

Ok, so you both make great points. To each his own. That's why its called "opinion". Whether you choose to like it or not is your own choice. And, if you choose to let it bother you so much that you have to "rant" back then that's your choice too.
