I've been doing that for weeks now hoping others would pick it up, I don't remember were I picked it up


I've been using Xbo since around it's announcement when people were trying to pick a name.

Unfortunately "Xbone" stuck. But I don't care, I keep using XBO because its easy to type.

Had a friend say he calls it Xbone because it's "fun".

I don't even know what that means. Is that where we are as a society that when we refer to a game console it has to be fun? At this point I just say "One".


I was just annoyed because 1 its too long and sounds weird XBO [Exbow] on the other hand fits


That's also exactly how I say it lol.

Original xbox = xbox

xbox one = xbone, the bone, xb one, xb 1, xbox 1, xbo, one xbo, 1 xbo, the one, the 1

boy, did MS ever botch the naming of this new console.

I mean, when the most commonly used and accepted nickname of your new $500 machine is 'Xbone,' then you have severely botched the name.

Welcome to the internet, notice how many on the internet use should/could/would of instead of - have, what does that say about the English language, nothing whatsoever.

If you all put as much time into finding a girlfriend as you do trying to decide what to call a console, you would spend a lot less time on gamefaqs.

That's not what it's about at all. Xbone is simply a lot catchier than the official name.

I call it X1 because calling it Xbone upsets people :/

Xbone does seem more of a troll made up type of name. I usually just call it what it is either way.

actually it makes alot of sense since the x and box would be hyphenated the hyphen is removed and the first letters are used when using numbers technically you are supposed to spell them out grammatically... so it makes perfect sense...

X-BOX ONE Shorthanded to XBOne


But there is no hyphen in the name, you are adding it. Hence it makes no sense.


grammatically if you want to read it (X-BOX) the hyphen is needed otherwise XBOX would be considered one word

although if you don't want to look at it grammatically that's fine the logo itself is in CAPS Short-handing it to XB and again because your spelling out numbers to make it grammatically correct you would add the One so it would look like XBOne which by your other short-handding XBO was also acceptable which would be a shortened version of the XBOne
