I've never thought it sounded derogatory.

I actually liked it. Sounded a little metalish IMO.

I don't think anyone will actually call it Xbone in speech. It's typing shorthand, but it doesn't really roll off the tongue. Think people will mostly call it "Xbox" in speech.

It's just simpler to pronounce it that way. To me, at least.

"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.


We know

Yeah especially if they want it to respond to their voice commands. But my buddy pronounces it xbOWN and it sounds great. (not because it has the word OWN in it but because it sounds less effete)

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.

Oh, and before, I forget. XBONE! Open the floodgates, we have Microsoft's blessing!

Another 180 to toss on the bonfire.


sorry but no. Major Nelsen opinion does not reflect the opinion of all of MS

I suggest you start worring about the sony 180s. Like the massive one how important online being free is, and how important BC is.

Just shout it out like a wrestling announcer and you will love it.

"Microsoft put Sony in the CROSS BONE! It's all over!"

^ This...Besides I also don't see a lot of people saying that in speech it would be like saying "lol" when you laugh at something your friends did.
