I heard plenty of "Super N.E.S." and "S.N.E.S."s back then.

Oh yeah, one more question. I need you to help end what
could otherwise be an endless debate about the Original
Nintendo. When you talk about it, do you call it N.E.S. or
do you say Ness?

Howard: I say “N...E...S...” without pauses between the
letters...

Burdger: Perfect! I win!

Howard: Nobody at Nintendo called it Ness...

Burdger: That is so good to hear! I always thought it was
odd people called it a Ness.

Howard: Although we did call the SNES Snesss ; )

Burdger: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Howard: SNES at first and then Sness as time wore on...


I still usually say N.E.S. and Super Nintendo. Both S.N.E.S. and Sness sound weird to me.
