You’re Not the Only One That Thinks PlayStation Vita is a Silly Name

With the release of Duke Nukem Forever right around the corner, Gearbox president and CEO Randy Pitchford has no time for weak, watered-down juice bar drinks like the PlayStation Vita.

Wow Kotaku focusing on anything they can find negative about Sony. So I guess they assume everyone thinks its a silly name. Did not see this coming. /s

Me personally I'm neutral with the name. It means live. So its Sony Live. Ah the irony.

@M-Easy - Vita Means 'Life'not Live

Stilnot as bad as 'Wii U'

M-Easy2690d ago

I stand corrected. A bubble for you sir.

As a latin student, I knew what that name meant from the start so im not very impressed with the choice due to lack of creativity. NGP rolls off the tongue more so that is what ill be calling it for a while until I lose my stubborness.

Godmars2902690d ago

Pretty sure people turned their noses up at NGP when it was first announced. Just as they did Natal, Kinect and Wii.

This isn't any different.

nopunctuation2690d ago

Yeah we will get used to the name in time. If they can name a console after a slang term for urinating then anything is possible.

Now that i think back, so many consoles sounded weird when first announced.

Playstation, Xbox, Gamecube, Wii, Kinect, & Vita and thats just the top consoles, let alone the ones that diidnt have a good life span (3DO anyone?) and the codenames.

But in time it becomes the norm..

Damn you beat me to it, once it refreshed you said damn near the same

What they don't realize is how stupid every console's name has been. XBox? Playstation? Wii? Gamecube? List goes on.. just made up words, you get used to them and forget how stupid they sound.

news4geeks2690d ago (Edited 2690d ago )

So true actually. Playstation sounds so lame but now that we are used to it we wouldn't have it any other way. Xbox is better but still kind of stupid, but again it's second nature to us.

shayol33t2690d ago (Edited 2690d ago )

Both names are silly, but really Xbox> Playstation in terms of names? What? One actually says what it is, where as the other sounds like a stripclub (for those uninitiated in the way of the 360)

Max_Dissatisfaction2690d ago

It is pretty stupid isn't it? Right up there with Wii U

Shadow Flare2690d ago

Vita is bad but WiiU is worse. I still can't quite believe they actually named it WiiU. It's almost like nintendo were intentionally trying to name it the stupidest thing they could.

eagle212690d ago

I like WiiU...but i went to college so maybe that's why.

Parapraxis2690d ago (Edited 2690d ago )

No, that's not why. By the way, you missed a comma "college" boy.

nopunctuation2690d ago

Wii U sounds a lot like the NO U meme which is meant as a weak way of rataliation for an insult. I dont know, it doesnt seem like a fitting name for a console.

coryok2690d ago

i think its fine, it is just a name lol
