    Yup, the rules of being given a nickname are that you don't get to choose it, you just have to live with it!!

    I really don't understand why it's "offensive" or derogatory (even if it were meant as such, how thin-skinned can you be?). I've done the math here before, and I'll do it again:
    XBox One = XBone

    Big deal?


    No one had a problem with Xbox 360 = X360 (read: similar type of shortening)

    The distance between the X and the 1 are further than the other letters to type xbone. While it may take a fraction longer to type it is easier.

    It's simple. It's their opinion that ms is boning their customers. So you get xbone. It doesn't really bother me but I know that's why some people use it........I've even heard MS called it the xbox-one because they took 359 steps backwards....lol

    XBone forever !! I mean even MS had official acclaimed the name if i remember correct. To late to get mad about it. Next time the creative peoples at MS should stick their heads longer together.

    I'll just mention these two things and then I won't be bother any more with this subject. Major Nelson is really pouring that gasoline on the fire here, and; it's just priceless that people care. I actually pronounce it Xbox one and spell it: either xbone or X1.

    Because the term 'Fore' is used for an errant golf stroke to let players no a ball may about to smack them in the $#@!ing head. That said, I just assumed whomever would say PSFore - just doesn't know how the hell to spell Four.

    Are you using Dvorak Keyboard or smoking something?

    XB1 it's simple it's clear and doesn't get confused with dozens of other X1's. X1 has been everything from Laptops to Cars, from Robots to the first supersonic manned aircraft.

    I didn't make it up, lol. Just see it on the forums Essentially the PS went the wrong way and is a failure, so people are saying "watch out", like in golf.

    No one had a problem with Xbox 360 = X360 (read: similar type of shortening)
    Going by that line of thinking,it would be XONE (typed out) or X1, wouldn't it?

    Well its the same as PSone, its what its called
    The name doesn't have a number so thats why people except XB fans.don't use XB1, its spells a number, hence XBONE, and it'll show up like that on orders lists too, I know I've seen them.
    Like someone else said, MS should have seen it coming, and I don't think it was intentionally named X bone, people just couldn't unsee it after it was pointed out.

    It depends either way. That's acceptable too.

    Like I said, not really a big deal - it's up toy YOU (the reader) to imply meaning (unless it's a clear troll: "MS is teh doomed with the crap Xboned lolz"). Any inference is at the behest of the reader, and is as offensive as YOU make it out to be - the more sensitive you are, the more precious you are about these little console wars, the more annoyed you will be.

    Honestly, the name should be a non-issue.
