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

X Box One is a stupid name but x-bone is actually pretty badass.

I cannot honestly believe some of what I have read in this topic.

What's upsetting is that he grabbed the mic from Angry Joe, flippantly said they can't change the DRM by flipping the switch and then flips a switch. Lying Larry has no business pretending to 'feel' emotions like the rest of us.

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.

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).


I call him

Xbone is clearly meant to be derogatory but That's why I don't like it. It's just a stupid word and people seem to have stuck to it. It seems to mostly be people who have negative things to say about the Xbox one who use it I think.


Thats not true. I call it the Xbone, yet I eagerly await it's release.


A lot of us can't wait for the xbone to be released and play with it all day.

But really, it is just a nickname. If you don't like it don't use it.

The bloke is a tool. I've got no time for him.

But the bottom line is if MS didn't want the console to have a stupid nickname they should have thought a bit more about the name. Xbox One is a terrible name and surely their branding department foresaw the console being called a boner.
