I find it as a pathetic attempt at humor, or is there something about it that I am not understanding?

Only the internet does it. It's like "noob" in a sense that if you said Xbone IRL people would look at you funny.

Probably punch you right in the mouth too.

The only people that would get burned up over such a ridiculous name are the ones that wander through life looking to be offended

This. It's your fault for getting offended by the name,TC. It's not intended as an insult. Microsoft even trademarked it I think. Is MS pathetic?

That's the console name. Bonus for trolls: MS boned their fan. MS boned their console.

It's not an insult (to gamers). It's the quickest way to write the console name and 100% ensure people know exactly which console they mean. I still occasionally double take when someone writes X1 or Xbox1.

Xbone is gonna stick.

I wonder the same thing.

I mean I get calling it "Xbone" as a conjoining of the two words, but as a "tehehehe, xbone" attempt at insult, I've never seen anything more asinine.

For starters, what the **** is an "xbone"?

No, I always thought "Xbox180" or "Xbox Done" were far more clever (and actually made some kind of sense)......then I think about the community at question here and it suddenly becomes of no wonder to me that those never caught on.
