Why do some people shorten Nintendo to Ninty?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Why do some people shorten Nintendo to Ninty?

There's not even a y in Nintendo. Where does the y come from!? Wouldn't Ninto make more sense?

Nope. Where im from we put a "Y" on alot of nicknames.



I don't know why but it sure as hell is catchy! Ninty!!!



Because it's shorter.



I guess they think it's cute or something. Or easier to say that Nintendo in a conversation.

So they can make it like Sony which ends with a "y"
