Gamesgalore - Someone might name their console for the same reasons they might be inclined to name their car. Even though you don't have to, by any means, some people just like to name their things. (I didn't name mine, though.)
I don't think that I have ever heard of anyone naming any of their gaming consoles or other electronics before. I know plenty of people that name their instruments and guitars though so I guess it is not that strange.
I am not religious, but i like the name because it has all of my games there... and it's a black console. The only reason i named it too was to identify it on my router, but i ended up liking the name.
Haha, awesome question. I've been wanting to to brag about my consoles name for a while now. I named mine after my grandma Betty, I wrote her name on the top in red sharpie, and she cracked up every time she saw it. Great lady.
I named mine "The Normandy" because of course, as it has been stated many times before, Mass Effect has an will always be a favorite game of mine. There is no doubt about that! But before I actually played Mass Effect, it didn’t have a name. I think when the Xbox 720 comes out, I’ll most likely name is the SR-2, after the Normandy 2.
Never thought about that before... our xbox doesn't really have a name. We just call it the xbox . It never shows up on the public network, so naming it has never been a priority, but it will be now! Something like Tom, sounds like a good name
I have never thought about giving my console a name, but if I had to I think I would call it Jimmy. Jimmy seems like a friendly name to give my Xbox 360(laughs). If I thought my Xbox was a girl, which I know its not, I would probably call it Zenon. I don't know why. I just think my game would be a bad girl because its black and green.
I tend to name most of my stuff. People have called me a weirdo for it, but I can't say I disagree with them - I'm a huge weirdo!
My xbox's name is Chazz, when I got it I always thought xboxes are for the Brogamers that play Madden and Halo and other homo-erotic games, so I went with something equally bro-y.
Some of the other things I've named:
Fender Stratocaster is called Isabella. It has a black gloss finish and a white pickguard - a sexy name for a sexy guitar.
My DS lite is called Marty, after my childhood best friend.
