Dual Pixels - Nintendo's E3 press conference will announce Project Cafe's real name may possible be...
Beem? Sorry, this is one awful name. MR.Bean sounds much cooler.
This makes PlayStation Vita sound great now lol
Beem?....sounds like something that you would get at Starbucks ill have a Grande Nintendo Beem please if its not the consoles name....it could be the name of their online network....you never know
not hardcore at ALL, but i can see that smooth voice narrator on tv ads introducing this console by this name. say it to yourself a few times...
"Scotty beemed me twice last night, it was amazing" -Spaceballs
No, no it doesn't. Vita still sucks
It seems the console makers are so competitive that they even need to compete for crappiest product name.
Beem, Vita, and come on....Wii.....no one is going to care a month after the system launches. Bicker over the names while you can, fanboys - no one is going to give a s*** soon.
The source of this one is 4chan? lol
Like I keep saying the best name for it has to be the Nintendo Donkey Punch....
Nintendo really likes giving their new consoles phallic names.. Wii, Beam -- Honestly?
Beem sounds silly, but Wii sounded even worse when it was first being said, not to mention all the Wii jokes XD
Beem is much stronger than wii. I mean how can the hardcore ride on a name like a limpy wii. Beem is strong and can weather the storm lol. It's act attention and hard enough to knock you out. Also I can see intends new commercials. Imma firing Ma lazzzzaaaaaaarrrrzzzzzzz then the screen goes dark and beem appears. Yep if nintendo doesn't make that I will and put it on tv my self lol. Or have the othe hd consoles given you the shaft well struck back with been it's over 12 inches of revenge! LoL
Nintendo beem???? Stream sounds better. Even Wii2
I was getting used to calling it stream
its not stream its striim
Oh God lol I am a fan of odd names. I hope it's called Beem. Imagine all the weird game titles. Mario Kart Beem lol or the slang that comes with it. guy 1: whatcha doin, dude? guy 2: Beemin' my data back to my game. or guy 1: Beem me a friend invite when you get home! guy 2: yeah, what's your gamertag? This would be too funny
My last name is Beahm... awesome
Beem? Are you joking me? I mean BEAM would make at least a little more sense but BEEM is just completely random....
Like Wii is any better
That's true. I guess we will just have to get used to it like we did with the wii, vita, and kinect.
Depends on where you come from. Not everyone reads Beam like that.
The problem that you've got is that it's very difficult to register a trademark on a common word. That's the reason that the didn't use Revolution, and also the unusual spelling for the Wii (instead of We). Beem, if it is that, would still be pronounced 'Beam', but it would be more likely that a patent or trademark would be granted because it is not spelt like a real word.
Spend billions to design a revolutionary (assuming a bit), new Nintendo system? Check. Do a little research to find a consumer friendly name for said system? Ehh, maybe later.
Maybe something was lost in translation?
You have to assume, right? But I said the same about the Wii, and that pretty much printed money for Nintendo, so good for them I guess.
Actually the Wii was easy to say globally, If this is true then I can see how Beem works for them.
Beem me up Reggie :)
maybe an acronym?
BEEM B=blu-ray E=equals E=epic M=mario Instead of BEEM they could call it super wii
Beem? are you kidding me? that sounds horrible. I would much rather prefer the nintendo stream. and if this is real, why the hell "beem"? better have a good ass explanation for the name.
Stream is so much easier to get used to. I would honestly like it to be called something like the NES 2 or gamecube 2 or some type of 3 letter acronym. Those are the easiest to accept.
Put me on board for the NES 2 argument. That name makes the most sense. That or Ultra NES.
They aim for global market, maybe they want to make it to be spelt easily throughout the world. It's not hard to say Beem. Shouldn't be a problem in every languge.
Beem is an awful, awful name. I'm sure we'd get used to it, but that won't change the fact that its terrible.
This is the same company that thought "Wii" was a good name so i really wounldn't put it past them.
ngp is better than beem! But beam, beam is good. i'm serious, the spelling makes all the difference to me. and i like ngp more than vita. In fact i don't really dislike ngp, i've got used to saying it. thank you for finishing this partially off topic comment
I like acronyms the most. They are a little bit boring but always sound right. NES, SNES, N64, PSP, NGP, etc.
Okay,i wait new N console. But BEEM??WTTTTTFFFFFFF? Its joke!
It might be for their network name
Interesting analysis. I think you know something we don't.
Name it Revolution...
Luffy would love it if its called the BEAM.
what the 'beem'?
I through Wii was stupid, not even a real world for god sake. BEEM.......... not sure on that one.
cafe sounds better
The other rumor is that it will be named Nintendo (since this is thought to be a "reboot" of the Nintendo franchise, that's why it rumors say that it looks just like a modern style NES) Source: http://kotaku.com/5808694/i...
In my opinion that is the BEST possible name for the new system... The name is universal... and Nintendo can come full circle...
Yep, agreed. Also the fact that Project Cafe is rumored to look like the NES, makes this rumor even more believable. Mock up picture: http://cache.gawkerassets.c...
that could work, but then people would be confuse if you said you played it on the Nintendo. They'd be like '85 Nintendo or 2012. Unless they from now own refer to the '85 as NES
True, that could be troublesome for some people, but let's face the facts, most gamers nowadays were not old enough to own a NES (at least not at launch), so for most consumers that wont be a problem. Also, we have seen the same names used in movies before (The Karate Kid) and video games (Sonic the hedgehog), so it could also work on video game consoles?
First PS vita then Beem who's the idiots that decide these stupid names anyways like come on there's better names then that.
I think "wii" was before both of those two and is a lot worse
Perhaps the 'Beam' concept has something to do with that holographic storage technology they've been rumored to be considering?
sounds like a ps1 emulator
The more publicity!
Game Informer is saying the game system will be called something universal... "Nintendo" I would go with just calling it "Nintendo"... Go full circle...
LOL beem? just call it Nintendo HD ffs!
oh well, maybe Microsoft will come with a smarter name next year, like Xbox360x2.
I like "Stream"
I hope it's called Beem just so I can come up with clever witty jokes for my website and for regular use in my daily life "Told you that wasn't gone be exclusive, they beemed it on over to Nintendo" "Dang that game beeming up the sales chart quick, huh?" stuff like that!!!!!
At least it doesn't make me think of genitals or urination. Mind you thinking about it, it also brings to mind a beam. As in a two by four or two by four upside the back of your head in prelude to a mugging.
It's being way overhyped. I think all you Nintentards are in for a big letdown. I don't expect it to be that great. 3DS wasn't anything special, so why would this be? Nintendo = gimmick machine. Doubt that's changing. This time it'll be all about the fancy control pad again I'm sure.
And Microsoft's conference this year was your favorite I assume?
Did I think Microsoft had the best presentation this year? Yes. Reason being, IMO, is because I thought they were more about offering something for everyone instead of catering to fanbois. (Microsoft Home and their voice control tech pretty much sealed that up for them I think. Also all the new stuff you can now do with Kinect.) Nintendo was catering to theirs with what was pretty much a 99% 1st party title lineup it seemed like. Of course Sony was catering to hardcore gamers, but that's what they're good at so they stuck with it. Them pushing 3D down our throats again was not so cool because they should know by now nobody wants to wear the shitty glasses. Vita is the new king of portables by far though, that's for sure. It makes 3DS look like a child's toy. Now, one thing I hate to admit but I will. Nintendo did shock me with the last 15 or so minutes of their press conference. The tech demo for the Wii U looked pretty good. All the 3rd party support they're boasting as well. The only problem I'm having with it right now is..they're talking the talk, but they had no 3rd party titles to show off running on it. So I'll withhold judgement until a later date, but so far it's looking good. Maybe Nintendo can turn themselves around finally. I was a doubter, but I'm becoming more of a believer now after seeing that press conference.
omg whats up with these names? no innovation
I agree. Project Reality/Nintendo Ultra 64 - Nintendo 64 Nintendo Dolphin - Nintendo Gamecube Nintendo Revolution - Nintendo Wii Project Natal - Kinect PlayStation Portable - PlayStation Vita Project Cafe/Nintendo Stream - Nintendo Beem? I guess it is a prerequisite to name consoles something stupid after coming up with a cool concept name for it at first. *SMH* The only time I think a console wound up with a name cooler than the prototypes would be the Dreamcast.
Move over Vita, we have a new worst name ever!
Is it a prerequisite now that you must come out with a ridiculous name for a new console in this day and age? Nintendo Revolution - Nintendo Wii Project Natal - Kinect PlayStation Portable - Vita Project Cafe - Beem? I really, really, really, really, REALLY hope this is NOT the name, but I have a hunch that it is just because it is the stupidest name of all we have heard to this point.
I like it. Probably will look cool, with blue lights and shit.
I really don't care what it's called but... that name is just hilariously bad.
