Strength is the only thing that matters in this world, everything else is just a delusion for the weak.

Now it's clever? Wasn't that Major Nelson guy losing his mind over it? I just think they have accepted it.

Larry Herb is just a sock puppet.

Off topic: Is it just me or does he look like a younger, American Jeremy Clarkson?

Little bit, but he'll never be as cool as Clarkson.

All fanboys are equally terrible. Hypocrisy and double-standards are at every corner, nobody is a saint.

I like it. But I doubt it will stick for anyone outside message boards. People who own the console will get into the habbit of calling it "Xbox" if they want it to respond to their voice. It would be cool if they allowed you nickname your console though.

I might name mine "Wax" because I'm silly and I like 80s movies.

"I think we can say we don't like it as much as we want, but it's a clever use of the name. Probably not the most flattering name, but I think it's going to be there."

Sounds more like he just accepted the fact it's going to stick rather than endorse the name.
