How do you pronounce NES/SNES?

As words 89 47.34%
 
As letters 99 52.66%
 
Total:188

Just something I'm wondering about since I saw a video earlier where somebody was saying N. E. S and S. N. E. S as separate letters which seemed really strange to me. I've always just pronounced them nes and snes.

As letters, it sounds weird to pronounce them as words.



I've been thinking about this recently too, with the SNES Classic on the market. I've heard some people say Snes instead of ess-en-ee-ess. I've always pronounced all the letters but it's interesting to hear other interpretations.



Where are the poll doods? Words are winning there but I'm the only one of them to actually post? I feel so alone

Letters.

I also hate the word people. :P
Sounds weird... especially snes.

Probably a regional thing. I'm in Ontario Canada and everyone I know says it as letters. I never even heard it said as words until youtube.



As words. Usually.
Some times I pronounce NES as Enn Eeh Ess.
