Xbox = Original Xbox
Xbox One = Xbox One.


To save typing, those 2 examples are not ideal.


Neither are yours.

X1 = Xbox One
X = Original Xbox

Can't reduce it by any more letters than that.


That's like saying typing 1 isn't any shorter than typing ONE.
It's literally 2 characters shorter.

XBO = Xbox One

OXB = Original Xbox



That is all.


Nah, a simple typo could completely alter your message.

Xbone is the way to go. Even Microsoft admits it will stick.

Those links have no relationship with what you said.

"That's like saying typing 1 isn't any shorter than typing ONE."

How is what I said implying that, I don't get it. I offered shorter abbreviations.

knightimex is correct that X1 is an unacceptable name because it already has been taken, multiple times.

Ch3wy is correct that knightimex's response doesn't directly relate to what he was questioning.

Please. You act like you've never seen multiple meanings for the same acronym. It happens all the time. Contextually speaking, despite the comments of "glorified cable box", the Xbox One is different enough from Comcast's X1 platform that only an idiot would misinterpret one for the other unless the statement was poorly worded.

So if I said this as an example would you understand?

Would the X1 have the same level of capabilities as the X1 when it comes to TV viewing?

^ This will obviously confuse the hell out of you.

Now if I said it as....

Would the XBO have the same level of capabilities as the X1 when it comes to TV viewing?

You would obviously know what I was talking about.
