It's actually "The Fun Machine." Or, that's what the company said "Famicom" means, which is what we call our Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). Touch!Generations says it means "Leave Luck to Heaven," so who really knows?

Desert Punk is an unknown quantity at this point

Nintendo has actually been around for over 100 years. It was founded on september 23rd 1889 as a playing card making company. It started making video games in 1975. Before Nintendo's video game era Nintendo tried other small ventures, such as a love hotel chain and selling rice. But really as a direct translation it is "The Hall of Entrusting Heaven" (Nin = Entrust Ten = Heaven Do = Hall or Meeting Place).
