    Why is this such a big deal? It's just a name...

    Everyone knew from the beginning it wasn't the final name.

    3DS sounded really good in my opinion. If the new name sucks, then I'll still refer to it as the 3DS from then on.

    it actually is surprising. the ds is now a brand name. You want those two letters in the name somewhere. 3ds was the perfect way to get nintendo's casual to see that a. its still the ds you love and b.theres now a twist so you should buy it to see it. Its perfect. Its still possible that the 3ds can be the name.

    "We've said that it will be released during this term, so the announcement of the formal name will not be too far off," said Iwata in response to one question about naming, indicating that "3DS" is not in fact the formal name but simply a placeholder.

    that's bullshit, it could still be announced as "3DS," what he said does not imply it WON'T be the name.

    Just hope they don't name it something dumb like Wii or Kalidoscope 3D

    3DS to me looks like plural of 3D which is also dumb.

    The plural of 3D is 3Ds. Unless you're shouting.

    I'm guessing you're one of those people who still call the Wii "Revolution?"

    I don't care even if the new name sucks. People bitched about "wii" when that name was announced, and no one complains about that anymore. If you want to buy it now, odds are you're gonna buy it even if the name is "dscrap"

    That`s what was said about the "DS" in Nintendo DS as well... But I think this time they will most definitely change the name, since the resemblance to the DSes name is a little too big.

    I vote for: GameBoy 3D [​IMG] (In fact I often call the NDS just gameboy [​IMG])

    Seriously, that makes you look stupid. [​IMG] It's completely separate to the Game Boy line.

    Well they changed "Revolution" to "Wii", so the chances of the new name being sucky are pretty high I'd say.

    Why would they announce the name if it had already been announced?

    Just so you know, since you have a skewed understanding of implications, I'm implying that you're stupid and don't know what you're talking about.

    What ?! What a surprise ?? No, it was just code name as always as any portables and consoles before they decide to gave a real name.

    I'm pretty sure the "surprise" comment was sarcasm.
