    Agreed.
    Xbox One
    XboxOne
    XboOne
    XbOne

    Then of course so many people felt "boned" so to speak by their original policies.

    People really need to just start calling it the X1 or XB1. It's shorter to type, looks better, and dodges the potential fanboy terminology.


    Edit: Why is everyone so butthurt over my post? This isn't controversial at all.

    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

    I've always thought it came across as trolling. When the name Xbox One was announced, in no way did I ever think Xbone should be the short hand for it. I actually thought XONE would be the short hand. Or ONE.

    XB1 or X1 I could see being feasible though.

    I really don't like the Xbone nickname either, but it's like when you name your child, you need to think of all the insults the kids on the playground will think of

    From the same thread, Major Nelson posted:

    Poster: The UI video that leaked today -- when do we get to see the real thing?
    Major: In a few weeks. I want to do a proper walk through w/ Albert.
    Poster: Why have we not seen a blog post from you like the one from the beginning of the current generation, where you compared the specs of the PS3 and 360?
    Major: I was thinking the same thing - I need to work on something like that. Thanks for the reminder.

    Xbone sounds like a nickname made up by a 15 year old geek that cant get laid due to playing too much Dungeons & Dragons

    Honestly at the end of the day it doesn't really matter now. Haters and fanboys will forever call it Xbone while everyone else will most likely just call it Xbox. I know a lot of my friends just called the 360 "Xbox".

    Even Kinect will only answer to Xbox. Imagine you had to say Xbox One On lol

    That is true. People have been saying just xbox and just playstation for years. The abbreviation is needed more when typing.

    I like the XB1 the most.
    With the amount of BMW X1 around here, when I think of X1 the car always comes to mind.

    I use it because it's quicker, sure X1 is even quicker to type but I kind of like XBone because it doesn't even sound offensive imo.

    Yeah some people genuinely like it but I think a majority of the time people use it as a sort of insult. I just imagine a kid saying it and giggling like "hehehe xbone hehehehehehhahahaha".

    If you want to do a short cut, X1 or XB1 is clearly easier than typing out then xbone. Not sure which is more stupid..xbone or xbox 720. Who ever came up with that crap needs a wake up call.

    I do think Microsoft could have named the system better to avoid this though, but at the same time I get the feeling they could have named it anything and someone will have found a way to come up with a sem-insulting name for it.

    Yeah, never got the name anyway. Putting focus on the "all-in-one" aspect of it in the name just didn't make sense to me. Not that it really matters. But "Xbone" became the default nickname almost immediately. No sense in Nelson whining about it now. The damage is done. I usually just say "X1", but getting offended over "xbone" is silly.

    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

    LOL, I always mentally interpreted Xbone as X-bone but never thought of it a MS boning it's customers. I always thought of it more like a Jolly Roger (Skull and crossbones) somewhat ironic considering that's a Pirating symbol while Major N. is worried about MS early DRM plans being viewed as boning their customers.

    That said, I personally prefer using XB1.
