Trying to move away from Xbone huh? Lol.


Those "Sony mods" that everyone likes to talk about on this board have begun deleting all thread topics with "XBone" in the title and many posts within threads that use the name under the guise of "trolling", no matter what else the user of the phrase says in their post.

"Sony Mods" my fanny.

Ah ok, that makes sense.

Because it's not "lol" anymore. It's old, we all got the joke. Lets put it to bed with the Bases, and over 9000's, like good little net trolls.

In private, I'll use it. I'll explain where it came from (to those irl who need it), and my surprise at how it got through MS marketing... although considering where this console was 8 months ago, it's not surprising. However, at no point do I think it necessary to actually type it.

Moving away from it? More like, moving on.

It'll never get old. Reason being because ironically it's easier to differentiate Xbone from the original Xbox 1. Faster and easier to type too.


Yep, it's catchier and Just Works. Jump in.

Because it's an Xbox One, I call it Xbox One. The Xbox is called the Xbox, the Xbox 360... well the oddball that I am, I call it the Xbox 360..

Much in the same way the more softboiled, thickwitted individuals call "Die Hard" "Die Hard One" and so forth, it's a problem you are literally fabricating for yourself.

During the 360's prime many casual gamers called the Xbox 360 simply Xbox, and called the original Xbox, Xbox 1 to differentiate it from the 360. But now that there are two Xbox 1s, one official and one unofficial, I've literally noticed casual gamers in disarray on what nickname to give to both the original Xbox and the Xbox One. Nice job MS, since the casual gamers is what they're going after with the Kinect and the "you can watch your NFL games in PIP while playing Madden!"

XBone has always sounded ridiculous.
