I've called it X1 since the beginning. It's kinda funny how it turned out like this though as "Xbone" is a great identifier for trolls and haters. It just screams "I can't stand this machine!"

I had a go at someone for calling PS4 the "Piss4" on another forum but tbh when I really thought about it, "Xbone" is very much the same childish abbreviation.

Think about s though, is it "Xbone" or is it "Crossbone"?? Sound a bit cooler now? no oh well.

XBOne makes sense: X Box ONE -> XBOne

But it doesn't though, it's Xbox One. Not "Xbone". If people capitalised "XBOne" as you have done then I woudln't automatically think they were a troll or hater.

However, no-one said "Xb360" last gen, it was either "X360" or "360" or simply "Xbox". "Xbone" is deliberate play on words.

Either way, it is XBox One not XB One....so that Xbone thing is really terrible. Only the ponies would disagree.

I wish the Knicks had Morey. Not because of his GM prowess but because he would improve our team defense and lower the overall team age.

Comcast's X1 device is better than the Xbox one? Ok.

You can say 360 and gamers universally understand you are talking about the Xbox 360. You can't say "one" and people understand what you are talking about. Not to mention it can be confusing and downright strange to say in short form verbally.
-"I'd like Multiplatform Game Y please."
"And what console do you want it for?"
-"One."
"One what?"
-"For the one."
"Which one?"
-"One!"
"Ok, so ONE copy for... the PS4?"
-"No for the Xbone."
"Oh, why didn't you say so in the first place?"

Xbox One can also refer to the original Xbox as that is how many referred to it when the 360 came out. Now injected "the" with the "one" and calling it "the one" is pretentious and even fanboys hesitate to call it that because it really isn't "the one" and the only "one" because there are other "ones" that are on the market.
You shouldn't be getting defensive over a name of a console that is just poorly thought out on Microsoft's part. Just like the Wii U.

There was a point in time, and people still do, when Nintendo consoles were just referred to as "the nintendo". Xbox just isn't strong enough of a brand to pull that off quite yet.
