Super Nintendo or SNES

Postby Truhan » 1 month ago

I know SNES is a good abbreviation for the internets, but I don't remember anyone ever calling it anything other than the Super Nintendo. I sure as hell don't remember ever hearing someone say "Super Nintendo Entertainment System" in the real lifes.

I've always said Super NES

I mean back then I didn't even know what NES meant or the concept of acronym to begin with so it was "like the NES but super"

This is a tough one.

I think I knew of it as Super Nintendo back then, but in retrospect, SNES makes more sense when you consider the analogy with NES. It doesn't sound right when people talk about how they referred to NES as just Nintendo with nostalgia. Nintendo should be the name of a company, not a console.

Come on now. The N stands for Nintendo and it was literally their only console in America back then.

Alright, so here's a commercial. The narrator refers to it as the "Super Nintendo Entertainment System" at the beginning, but then at the end calls it the "Super Nintendo".
