What's the Point of Naming Your Xbox 360?

I saw an option in the settings to name my Xbox. What's that for? Will the name show up in a game or something?

It's so that it can be recognised more easily on networks that have multiple Xbox 360s.

DLC, online passes and the rise of casual budget gaming have ruined the video game industry.

It so you can scream out your console's name, when it gets the RROD. Like: "No, Professor Buttscootcher!! WHY!!!!!!!!".

But, seriously, it's as MrFwibbles says, it's the help your network identify the console, and allow communications more easily with other items in your network. It's the same reason you name your PC.

My sister decided to use my 360 for the first time in a year and gave me the strangest look when SexBox popped up as a storage device.

well i don't really hate you with a burning passion because i don't really give you that much thought, but i do think you're a ****ing idiot.

That's pretty funny. If I had to share an Xbox, I'd either name it "Professor Buttscootcher" or "Ze SexBox", just to weird people out.
