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.
    I agree I never clocked onto it at first, but it is how you read it
    Like the RE6 logo.
    I really think its a case of " I can't unsee it!"

    I know I immediatly thought up this shortening, there may have been some crudity subconciously or after the fact, but in the front of my mind it was simply my favorite (and spur of the moment) shortening. Plus I tend to spel everything out anywho. Ido remember this being brough up on gaf around MSs initial presser and said something to the 'issue' then

    xboned = trolling/offensive

    It's just a case of "quit picking on my console" imo. Even some people who say they are buying the xbox one say that they are buying the xbone. Why would they say they are buying a system to be $#@!ed over if xbone is used in that manner? It doesn't make sense to me.

    At home I actually call it the Xbox ONE. Xbone is the written term I use on forums. But I guess it wouldn't be too hard to switch to X1 if XBONE gets schoolgirls panties in a notch!

    I always refer to XBOX as BRANDX as in a 1989 Batman Joker quote "He's been using brand X" you could basically say I'm calling it poison which could also be seen as clever as many poisons depicted in movies especially Access chemicals in BATMAN have green poison and XBOX branding has green everywhere and not the nice TEAL Coloured green but a poison green.

    When I first heard XBONE I thought it referred to the console being as useful as a dog with a bone referring to a dog burying it etc.

    Does it sound strange that the only reason I wanted an XBOX ONE was to play killer instinct then they announced they're using a modified street fighter engine and I was like pfft... I'll skip this.


    Major Nelson is dopey as hell that's why I love it anytime he's doing an interview and/or posting about something, you can just rip into anything he's saying and make him look like a goose

    I can't even call it XBOX ONE.
    It''s not following the formula of re releasing a unit smaller and more compact cheaper calling it the One or the Two (NES 2, Genesis 2, Genesis 3, PS One)...
    It's also not the FIRST XBOX.
    Furthermore, there's NO consideration for gamers in that it doesn't play XBOX Games. I know they are old, BUT, the hardware is compatible.
    So, what is it...

    XBONE, or, XBO (Like TyBo). It's also not in my living room in the next couple of years if ever.
    I have an Xbox, and an XB360, not interested in this anymore. Too much BS.

    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.

    Yep. No matter how bad it sounds, "XBone" kind of makes sense.

    Major Nelson doesn't like the Xbox One being nicknamed 'XBone', but what about all the people who don't like Larry Hryb being nicknamed 'Major Nelson'?

    from Wiki
    He picked the gamertag Major Nelson after a character by the same name on the 1960s U.S. television comedy I Dream of Jeannie after it was recommended to him by his TiVo.[1] Larry dedicated his gamertag to Larry Hagman after his death in 2012.[

    lol. I don't mind the Xbox consoles and while I lean more towards Sony for gaming on consoles the Xbox isn't all that bad either. But for Major Nelsons (hell, I didn't know his real name nor do I even care), just because you dress goofy doesn't mean you are a gamer. I don't care much for his presence in gaming and I think they could have hired a much better person.

    I think the reason is because he has the face of someone you could punch in the face and not give a crap. There is another person like that named Don Mattrick.

    Saddest thing of all is, they did. J Allard, Seamus Blackley and Robbie Bach were legit. They're all gone now.

    xbone.com is now owned by MS.

    Microsoft may not like “Xbone” nickname, but they just acquired Xbone.com

    SEPTEMBER 12, 2013 BY J.B. LEAVE A COMMENT
    Major Nelson may not like the idea of the Xbox One being nicknamed the “Xbone”, but that hasn’t stopped the company from acquiring the domain name Xbone.com.
    According to the latest WHOIS records, Microsoft Corporation is the name’s new owner.
    While it’s only speculation, it’s very possible the domain’s previous owner got an undisclosed amount of cash from Microsoft. And considering all the recent buzz this week, it probably wasn’t a small amount.
    Earlier this week, Larry Hryb (the Director of Programming for the Microsoft gaming network Xbox Live), posted a message on NeoGAF saying the nickname, “…disrespects the teams that have put in thousands of hours (already) into the development of the product. Sure, it’s cheeky but I don’t care for it myself.”
    No domain dispute was ever filed by Microsoft against the owner of Xbone.com and even if it had been, there’s no guarantee the company would have won.

    In July, Microsoft’s lawyers took ownership of the domain namesXboxOne.com andXboxOne.net after filing a complaint with the National Arbitration Forum (NAF).
