Xbox One is just confusing given that everyone basically refers to the original Xbox as the Xbox 1, and the Wii U at times has me thinking of the expression pee-yew / PU that indicates a foul smell since the pronunciation is the exact same minus the starting consonant sound. There's also the fact that neither of those names clearly indicate console succession.

Both are bad, people think the Wii U is an accessory to the Wii, and the Xbox One just sounds straight up stupid.

Both are bad, Xbox One is worse though. There are very few game consoles that I think have good names though (mainly Sega consoles, now that I think about it...)

I think the reaction too the xbox one's name is overly negative. It may not be the best name but I don't see anything wrong with it in particular.

Both are bad, but Nintendo is stuck with it. Microsoft can and will use enough marketing dollars to make people aware despite the stupid name.
If I support the game company, then I won't be supporting the blank DVD business.
