When they started the xbox 720 joke i got it pretty fast since it's the New "xbox".and can't go full hd, so 720 Makes quite a.clever name, But the kinectless 180 doesn't seem right to me

180 refers to the "flip flopping" nature of their policies as making a 180 would involve turning the other direction

geometry based jokes

Without the power of the Kinect, the Xbox is only able to display 180 lines of resolution.

Lets do drm 180 lets not do drm cause everyone hates it
Lets make kinect mandatory 180 lets not cause everyone hates it
Lets not allow indie developers to self publish 180 lets change that cause everyone hates it
Lets lock everything behind a paywall 180 actually no everyone hates it

Donno if I missed any but you get the point, its good that they did 180's but at the same time you gotta question why these anti-consumer policies existed in the first place.

Why did they call it an Xbox 360?
Because when you saw it you did a 360 and walked away.
