The Truth Behind Console Numbers

We’ve all heard of gaming consoles; from Playstation 3 to the Dreamcast 64, these devices have been a part of history for as long as anyone can remember. 

In recent times, hackers have solved lots of mysteries about video games and how they work, but one thing that still remains unknown is what exactly the numbers in console names mean. This article hopes to serve as a comprehensive list of the origins of these puzzling digits.

Nintendo

  • Nintendo 64 – The Nintendo 64 was named as such in order to honor the fact that it was the 64th video game ever made.
  • Nintendo 3DS – Everything about this console is three-dimensional.
  • Nintendo 2DS – This console exists only in two dimensions.
  • Nintendo WiiU – Maybe people think U is not a number, but it’s actually the Greek symbol for 4. This was Nintendo’s 4th console.

Sony

  • PlayStation 2 – This had twice as many polygons as the original PlayStation.
  • PlayStation 3 – This came after the PlayStation 2.
  • PlayStation 4[unknown]

Xbox

  • Xbox 360 – The flash point of the Xbox 360 is 360 degrees Fahrenheit. However, some people believe that the reall reason it’s called the Xbox 360 is because the console itself is perfectly round.
  • Xbox One – There’s only one of them.

Did this list clear up some of the confusion surrounding the numbers in console names? We don’t know.

1) I’m a diehard Nintendo fan and I own at least one incarnation of every generation of Gameboy. Also, I own a console from every generation since N64 (for the 16 bit era I do own a Genesis, though, and I have a Dreamcast for the “inbetween era”).

2) I’m also a bit of a collector and I own a couple of rarer games. I have Sonic R for the PC which is considered the rarer version, Super Mario Land which was ways less popular than its sequel (Six Golden Coins), and most recently, Xenoblade. I got it for like, 50. It goes for around 70 now holy jebus.

3) To keep with the video game theme, i’m a literal walking encyclopaedia of Zelda facts. I’m quickly becoming a walking encyclopaedia of ATLA/LOK facts too lol.

4) I’m an award winning composer. Yes, they’re student-level awards, but one of them is national. 

5) I spent 40 bucks the other day to buy a custom hat that says “WATER TRIBE” on it. I regret nothing.

6) I play piano, guitar, bass, learned three chords on the ukelele in five minutes, can hold a beat on drums, and i’m a classically trained mezzo-soprano. I also used to play trumpet but i’m selling that thing now for $250 pls buy it it comes with a mute and TWO mouthpieces and all the proceeds will go to my ukelele fund. YOU WANNA HEAR ME WRITE CUTE MUSIC? BUY MY TRUMPET. THANK.
