Whenever The Nintendo NX Does Arrive, It Should Keep The Name

I’ve been talking a lot about the Nintendo NX since the new year began, because Nintendo isn’t, and someone has to.


But seriously, all we known about the system is the codename, and everything else is rumor and speculation, as evidenced yesterday by a hyper-speculative market research survey that many sites were reporting as gospel.

Nope tradition dictates that it's going to change.

Project Reality became the Nintendo 64.
Dolphin became the GameCube.
Revolution became the Wii.
Project Cafe became the Wii U.

Dot Matrix Game became the Game Boy.
Project Atlantis became the Game Boy Advance.
Nitro became the DS.
CTR became the 3DS.

It's only inevitable that NX will change.

I totally agree with you. But it seems the contributor likes Nintendo NX name.

jcnba281538d ago

I agree but I actually like the name NX. At least we know Wii won't be in the name according to Kimishima.

Loadedklip1537d ago

Irrelevant to the point the contributer is making.

They just like the name NX. It sounds really good and seems to fit naturally.

Nintendo NX .... it just sounds good.

traditions were made to be broken at some point. Personally I think the NX is a great name.

Obviously past history dictates that most code names get dropped in favour of something else, but that doesn't mean it HAS to happen this time.

Wouldn't it be a trip if NX was short for Nintendo-XBox?:P

In all seriousness, though; it's gonna change.
It pretty much has to. They never keep code names, even when they sound cool. [Seriously, Revolution? The Wii U should have kept that code name. Might have helped quite a bit]

I'm still partial to the idea of a cylindrical-shaped consoled called "The Nintendo Power Tower".
There's just something so weird about it that I can't help but think of it as...wonderful.8)

It's almost definitely short for Nintendo Experience, a spin on common dev term UX which is short for User Experience.

One hour a day they have the Nintendo Power Tower Flower Hour where you can scan NFC Fire Flowers to enhance the power of the console.

They should call it the Nintendo Nintendo.


GryestOfBluSkies1537d ago

Moonman1537d ago

Philface1537d ago
