Obviously, the name Microsoft picked out for its third console has been unpopular in certain circles for numerous reasons.

Should they go ahead and 180 on the name as well? Remember how at one point, the Wii was called the Revolution.

Xbox One is a godawful name but they shouldn't change it now.

I still think they should have gone with the Xbox 360 Delta

Disagree. If that were the case, it would have opened up the Xbox to terrible names such as Xbox Watchin U.

Xbox One is just fine. It's will likely be nicknamed the X1 after a while anyways like the Xbox 360 is much referred to as just the 360 even though the name was bashed to hell and back when it was originally announced.

You need to come to terms with the fact that it shall forever be known as the Xbone.

i like how people call One terrible, then come up with even more cringeworthy names

Xbox One doesnt make sense, but it rolls off tongue better than most any other suggestion. works from a marketing perspective, there won't be any 'issues' with it months after release. it won't be like the PS Vita or Wii U issue where the casual userbase is unaware that they are radically different hardware. hell, i think the vast majority of the gaming market is already aware that the Xbox One and PS4 are the next generation of systems, alot of hype surrounding it all, not like the relatively low-key Wii U introduction.

I agree it's a stupid name in some ways, but I get what they were going for. If anything they should've stuck with the consensus and named it the Xbox Infinity.
