abbreviated as PS, while people often write PS1. I remember buying pirated Playstation games from HK in 95-96 which had a crappy PSX logo pasted over the top of the artwork.. super legit :) (12 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: yea, i laugh when i see PSX. somehow it's stuck for all those years. Ofc there's an actual product called PSX which is the PS2 based recorder. As for Playstation i think it's officially (14 minutes ago)
The Wii-U should have been called Puu (20 minutes ago)
Well, it could be worse. Could be something daft, like Wii-U (1 Hour ago)
do i think it'll be called that? no. do i think anyone thinks it'll be called that? no (1 Hour ago)
@MrWhite: i think that's just people maintaining current naming convention to let people know what they're talking about. i call next gen xbox "xbox two" for instance. (1 Hour ago)
