I remember having a Sega-focused magazine as a kid.
They kept referring to the PS1 as the Greystation because all of its games and the console itself was “boring and grey.”
They also kept referring to the PS2 as the ‘Greystation 2’ even though it wasn’t grey. It was a bit odd.
I don’t think game magazines exist any more to call consoles dumb nicknames, but at least we have GameFAQs users to call people Sony Ponys, Nintendrones, and Xbots! It’s like the modern day equivalent of ‘Micro$oft’ ‘N*Suck* and ‘Titney Spears.’
