Recently, I was watching this video of an old woman trying to stay sharp by playing Brain Age on the DSL While, I was watching, she referred to the DS as a Nintendo. Then it got me thinking. A lot of casuals and non-gamers usually call Nintendo systems, the Nintendo. My mom calls it that, some of my friends call it that, I see people calling it that at the gaming section at my local store. What is up with that? Why do people not call the Xbox or Playstation the "Microsoft" or the "Sony"? This is super minor but do people seriously just don't know what Nintendo calls their own systems?
