No it's shorthand, and fun to write, and evident of the horrible naming convention MS is using this time around.

Well, Xbot is referring to the people who liked Xbox. Xbone is the actual console.

And if I might add, it's the dumbest derogatory name for something I've ever seen. Pretty much as bad as "Sony pony." Overall, just lame.

Huh, okay just making sure.

Thanks for the reassurance :)

I just see it all the time and I thought maybe I was wrong :O

Obviously it should be called the 180.

The Xbox one was 359 less xbox's than everyone was expecting.

It started as such, but I've seen it both ways since.

Ignoring the phrase it creates, it's a legitimate shortening of the name.

I just know that even though I'm getting an Xbox at launch...seeing "xbone" makes me lol. Appeals to the silly side in me I guess.
