Poll: Which Console Has the Dumbest Name?

A particularly light and fluffy question for this week's poll, GP faithful:

Which of the current crop of video game consoles do you think has the dumbest name?

Is it the Wii?  It's the Wii, isn't it?

Yeah, it's probably the Wii.

Well, vote away and I'll post an article next week revealing the poll results.  I know the responses are limited so if you're itching to tell the world that the WonderSwan is the dumbest console name of all time, that's what the comments section is for.  In fact, if you say something particularly witty or insightful I may just spotlight your quote along with the results!

    Agreed. Wii & Wii U are unique and memorable. Vita on the other hand sounds like a brand of health products. Actually….as it happens, it is! Maybe that was an intentional thing, trying to give the product the connotation of being essential to a daily life, but frankly I think it's just dumb.

    It's not on here, but I would have voted for the Ouya.  Dumbest.  Name.  Ever.  I know it supposed to sound like "ooh yeah!" but it sounds either the way the French or someone from Minnesota would say it.  That or it sounds the way it would be said while having sex!  They could have put a bit more thought into naming it.

    Playstation. that's what the demo kiosks at game stores used to be called. and the fact that Sony has been using it for ALL of their hardware just drives it deeper.
