    ...To "Bandai Namco."

    STOP THE PRESSES!

    What? Hey, it might not sound like much to you, but they've got to protect their brandai.

    When it comes to avoiding confusion, a little consistency with the naming certainly doesn't hurt. You can't blame them for jumping on the bandai-wagon.

    It's a more accurate truncation of the name now, and I shall be using it.

    I didn't even know whether it was Namco Bandai or Bandai Namco before. I actually thought it was the latter. Oh well, easier for me.

    I wonder how much the naming group got paid to come up with that.

    It was already Bandai Namco but I prefer to call them Namco Bandai.

    Namco Bandai is going to get a lot of shit for releasing that piece of crap known as "Battle of Z".

    Shouldn't it be Ban Dai then?

    Ban Dai Namco

    That's what it's like on the cover of Bleh of Z.

    I dont see the problem. Some people just trying to found problems anywhere for anything. umm i know put a lawsuit on them, because is damaging your way to call a company, and that affect your brain.

    There's a hotel here (very famous) that has got its name changed a couple of times from Sheraton to Movenpick to Dar es Salaam Hotel etc. I heard its a way to reverse some debts.

    Yeah, because abbreviating it to 'Namco' or 'Bandai' obviously was way too much work... :P


    EDIT: in other news: coca cola will now change their name to cola coca, because why the hell not? ;)
