Why is Major Xbone upset at the Xbone's name?

They picked it. Obviously the community was going to give it some joke name because that is what people originally perceived the console to be.

As a disabled veteran, I'm more irritated that he has the gall to call himself "Major" even though he never served in the military. Major azz is more like it (and yes, I'm an xbox fan).


are you being serious? That sounds beyond petty


Actually I was being sarcastic, but after going back and reading it, it didn't come off that way.

I couldn't care less what he calls himself, what he thinks of the nickname of the console, or what anyone on this board calls it or thinks of it either. I make my choices based on my opinions, not anyone elses.

to be fair, a Major Nelson is a wrestling hold that is done using your arms, submissioning a person from behind by pushing down on the back of their head.


that's called full nelson

As a chef, Captian/Major/ect. hold no more meaning then my title of Chef, just another worker.

It's actually 'I dream of Jeannie'. Though, you obviously aren't old enough to know that.

Sorry, Major. They can't just flip a switch and change the name, you're stuck with it.
