I go by what the commercials used to say, N-E-S and Super N-E-S, no confusion amongst folks that way. I've heard some people on YT call it the SNEZZ (that's how it sounds like to me anyway).

Although I never say it myself, I don't get annoyed by the pronounced "nesssss", but for some reason, the pronounced "SSSNESSS" makes me want to strangle a puppy.

 

For me N-E-S and Super N-E-S.

 

Hey....let us leave the cute innocent Puppies out of this.....can't we all just get along?

lol!

I usually refer to the Nintendo Entertainment System as the N-E-S. But sometimes I call it "the Nintendo" because back when I originally had it, that's what we called it, just like folks called the VCS "the Atari."

I usually refer to the Super Nintendo Entertainment System as the Super N-E-S.

25 years ago....its was not "Hey lets go play some NESS.....or ness...! It was lets go play some Nintendo! And for the record a gameboy was never a nintendo....its always been A Gameboy....now I hear people calling it a Brick??? WELL..that may be what it is now, but when it was released, thats not what you were calling it then..>!

 

It was Nintendo on the Go! (just with worse gameplay)

No one called an NES a "Ness" 25 years ago though.

 

 

Again, they did.

 

Apparantly you and you alone called it a nezzz. Anyone other than Rex Dart hear it called nezzz and snezzz 25 years ago?

There's worse things than trying to distinguish a brand from a product...

My friends and I in the '90s used to call the SNES a "sness" all the time, either that or just "Super," as in, Hey, what Super games you got? The NES was casually referred to as a "Normal Nintendo," clearly differentiating it from the Super. At the time, everyone understood each other just fine.

I don't say V-C-S, I say "Vicks", and anyone who doesn't is a retard.

I've called them ness and sness for years, and I've been gaming since before the NES came out. Those aren't the only things I call them but I use those plenty. I also use NES, SNES, Super NES, Super Nintendo, and occasionly I may just call the NES a Nintendo. Just because some of you never heard those terms back in the day, that doesn't mean they weren't used. I will grant you that ness and sness are the least common ways to say the names of the systems though.

I usually say "snes" and "N-E-S". I know I've said "S-N-E-S" before, but I don't think I ever used "nes." Hadn't really given it too much thought.

I think Snezzzz was a European thing. The only time I ever heard anyone say that was on an old European Videogame show. It sounds stupid as hell.

 

For me it was usually N-E-S and SuperNintendo.

Only people I've ever heard call it a "sness" were too young to have been around back then.

 

 

It also bugs the fuck out of me when people call the Xbox..Xbox 1 or Original Xbox, it's just Xbox..that pisses me off

Me too, but there's no way around it =/ I try just calling it an XBox, and people are like "Oh dude, what's your gamer tag??" =|

 

Even though nobody I know calls the 360 an "XBox". It's just "360".

 

Maybe I should start calling it "regular XBox" like we used to do with the NES back in the day.

 

Regular Playstation =) Doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.

Hi guys,

 

I hardly ever say SNES! I usually say Super NES like they did in the early 1990's or Super Nintendo! The NES is how I usually write it and say it!

 

Super NES just sounds better and for when I write it or type it!

Written: NES, Nintendo, SNES, Super NES, Super Nintendo

 

Spoken: N-E-S, Nintendo, Super N-E-S, Super Nintendo

 

I've never said "Ess-en-ee-ess" when referring to the SNES. It takes just as much effort to just enunciate "Super" with the addition of not sounding like a snake.

 

Saying "Ness" or "Sness" just sounds stupid. :lol: I would probably assume (rightly or wrongly) that anyone that pronounces it like that wasn't around back in the day. As far as I remember, nobody called it that. It's as ear-cringing as hearing someone call cartridges "tapes". If someone were to say "Ness" or "Sness" to me in real life I'm sure I wouldn't know WTF they were talking about at first.

 

Maybe it's a UK/Irish/European thing, but we all called it nes and snes.
