NATO is an acronym, but NES is an initialism. As for why, I have no idea. Majority usage is what dictates the flow of language, but I couldn't tell you why some people prefer some words to be acronyms or initialism since they're essentially serving the same purpose of shortening a longer series of words.

Weird. Ness is a somewhat recent thing in English. I've noticed that it's common with younger generations that didn't grow up with one, kind of like PS1 being used to reference what we called the PSX or just PlayStation.

Of course, I can't speak for non-English speakers, so maybe it's always been like that in French, and maybe even a lot of other European languages.

You may have a point
unfortunately, I grew up without any of those devices or maybe only a nitendo gameboy color, which was great!

Furthermore, I find it quite interesting that some acronyms are pronounced as they are: NATO, UK, USA and so on but NES isn't. Is there some rules about that, that i'm not familiar with?

I study languages, linguistics, blah blah and it's fasinating

It's obviously supposed to be Lock Ness Monster, but no one ever called the NES a Ness. It was either enn ee ess or just Nintendo.

Okay, I was not aware of that, because in french speaking countries, where I am stuck now, it is pronounced "nes" so I have been biaised.
