I donít like itÖit disrespects the teams that have put in thousands of hours (already) into the development of the product. Sure, itís cheeky but I donít care for it myself.


Meanwhile, the UK division seems to have embraced the name:

The crap that they tried to push down our throats was disrespectful.

I think they brought this on themselves by calling it "Xbox One".

What else did they expect people to call it? "The One"?

Maybe it would have got a better nickname if the actual name didn't suck.

I just call it an X1. If people want to call it the Xbone, that's up to them. You only make it worse when you start responding to it, it makes you look silly.

Major Nelson doesn't afraid of anything.

Except the switches. Don't flip the switches!

X1 is a car.

The fact that he insists people refer to him as Major when he has never been in the military is disrespectful

I call it the X1, I think the Xbone sounds tacky and easy to come up with.

I do believe MS helped bring this on themselves by not having people who helped develop the name the name that apparently have no foresight on such things.

I'm still a bit salty over it, but I feel they should've gone with the popular Infinity name for the system.
