Rumor: Project Cafe is called the Nintendo

There has been many a debate surrounding the final name of Nintendo’s new console, to be announced on Tuesday morning on the first day of E3, but today’s rumor appears to be the most familiar.

We’ve heard of the codename Project Cafe, and the possible final names Nintendo Stream, Wii 2, and Wii HD, but we’ve never heard it go the ‘reboot’ route. Many games are doing it, so why not a console?

According to what Game Informer is “hearing,” the new Nintendo platform, which we’ve commonly referred to as Nintendo HD, will just be known as “Nintendo.”

I like it.

    I think its a cop-out. They can do better.

      T3h Nintendo?

      I sort of like going back to the original name, but I think I know what you mean too. Maybe they might come up with a name or subtitle or modifier later.

    • AdamBoy64

      Yes, that would be horrible.
      I think I’d prefer they did call it the Stream, even though the jokes would continue.

    All I know is its better than saying wth lets call it Vita!

    • rockman29

      I actually like Vita haha, it seems the whole internet disagrees with me lol.

      • AdamBoy64

        Well, I’m with you. I think it’s a good name.
        Not great, but better than just calling it Sony.

  • xMCXx

    Soon the “Sony” and the “Microsoft” will follow : p

    • rockman29

      Oh God, now those would actually be bad haha.

  • whiteferrero

    I actually like the “Nintendo”. It comes out saying, “WE ARE THE FUTURE”. something like that.

    Although i’d probably still buy a sony. :D

  • lol so what about the next console after this?

    The Nintendo….


  • Well I like it.

    Think about it. Sony and MS havent really used their company names in their systems in the same that Nintendo have. People dont’t say “Sony PlayStation” (OK, they did in the 90’s, but not so much now), whereas “Nintendo” has always been a brand of it’s own.

    Yeah, I think it’s a good idea!

  • Kobracon

    This……is gonna be confusing……

    “Hey, what console do YOU have?”
    “The Nintendo!”
    “…..Nintendo what? Wii? GBA? Gamecube? DS? 3DS??”
    “Just…just The Nintendo”


    • AdamBoy64

      Yes, particularly with the Nintendo. As in, the ‘first’ system. The one before the Super Nintendo.

      I call it the Nintendo, but um.. yeah. Going to be pretty confusing.

      • Kobracon

        Oh wow I wasn’t even BORN yet! XD

      • camaro300zx

        I call the FIrst Nintendo:

        “Regular Nintendo”

        So what are the Japanese going to call “The Nintendo”? —- “The Famicon”?

      • rockman29

        Well the first one was called the Nintendo Entertainment System, and Super Nintendo Entertainment System, so it’s just slightly different lol.

  • big drew

    lmfaoo. “THE NINTENDO” well as creative as they are that name better not be concrete, if u can put mario in the galaxy…then you can damn sure make a hyper name. A rumor, yet rumors on this site become true lol. Nintendo doin its thing so i give support
