I had this ever since launch, and yet I just noticed that. Sure, it simply says "Xbox" with its logo on the bottom left side of the top part of the console, but never "Xbox One". More perplexing since all game cases have "Xbox One" on colored and raised plastic.

And we all experienced people calling the Xbox 360 the "Xbox" if they don't say "360", and so for people who don't know about the "Xbox One", and looking at the console may be a bit confused, as it doesn't say the entire name on it.

Granted, the Playstation 4 only says "PS4" in depressed text on the right side of the front of the console (I own that as well, which like Xbone, I got at launch), and not the full system name. Meanwhile, the Wii U (owned at launch as well) remains the only next-gen console which states the full name of the system on the lower right hand corner of the system (as well as the Gamepad).

So I am wondering why MS would omit the full console name on the system itself...

Don't need the system to tell me what it is.
I buy DLC. If that makes me a "sheep" then oh well. Don't like it? Oh well, get over it.

TC, I think Microsoft wanted to copy the iPhone design, since iPhone's don't have their number on it, but just the phone's name, lol.

Why do you feel the need to point out that you got all at launch does that make you feel better about yourself, does it make you feel better than people, or just pointing out that you still live at moms house and have no life.
