    I use Xbone because it was saved into my predictive text on my tablet. This post though, apparently my dictionary got erased so guess is X1 time. Lol

    If they didn't want weird sounding shorthand, they shouldn't have named it the way they did lol. They better hire someone that just sits around and things of shorthand names of things they come up with lol.

    I don't mind typing it no matter how many characters are included. XB1, XBox One, XOne, Xbone, none of it matters and none of them offend me even if in phallic nature. Take that Major Nelson.

    Agreed. Anybody actually getting offended just because some people are calling it Xbone are obviously too emotionally attatched to their console of choice imo. Time to put your big boy pants on. lol

    I think it looks silly because it spells the word bone, and bone obviously doesn't have anything to do with consoles and gaming.

    People are gone call it what they want to though, im just ready to get the Xbox One and play games.

    It doesn't matter what MS was gonna call it. The names would still come. It's just typical fanboy stuff that comes with every generation.

    I don't think it has anything to do with fanboy stuff in this case. I think it's more accurate to say it's typical for a console name to get shortened, with every generation.

    Playstation 3, PS3... Xbox One, Xbone.

    They should go like Nintendo. DSi, 3ds, Wii. Not really an need to shorten those; compared to Nintendo Entertainment System.

    nah, it's mostly just a name mostly for negativity. If it would of been called xbox Infinity there would still be something. For example, TV/cable box or xbox 180...lol

    I think your reaching a bit. I know some use it as negative, but how? I don't understand how it's negative. X$#@!, absolutely. Although that was a sad attempt lol. What exactly makes Xbone negative. I don't see it. Simply combination of two words.
