It actually is. Microsoft themselves didn't name the 360 XBOX 2 because they didn't like their console having a lower number than the competing PS3. And now some dumb guy at the marketing department comes up with Xbox One. Like...seriously? That makes it as bad a name as Wii U.

But then again, why are you even bringing this up TC, this is old facts.

For the majority of 30+ers buying stuff for children yeah

PSP2 > Vita
Wii 2 > Wii U
Xbox Infinity > Xbox One

Xbox not selling? A different reason most likely.

I was talking to my mom about it around Christmas and I was saying Xbox one is $500. She was like "don't you have an Xbox one in your closet" I have the original Xbox in my closet.

Of course it would be.

In America, we got the Xbox One. I don't know when they plan to announce the Xbox 1, but they should probably wait until all of the Xbox One consoles sell first.
I'd like to play DayZ on consoles.

But it is selling, so this post is pointless. Well, it was pointless anyway.

That is the reason Xbox 1 consoles are sitting on the shelves. 360 > 1 therefore 360 is better. Most consumers probably think the Xbox1 is the classic original Xbox. Maybe Xbox 1 mini that comes out next year can save Microsoft from going third party.


is it just me or are the Sony Pony trolls just grasping at straws now? lol


I know, the Wii U is a perfect name and only idiots confuse it with the standard Wii.

Wait, what board am I on again?


Well MS knows how to properly advertise even though their PR is crape, while Nintendo doesn't seem to have one

Not to mention the fact that you won't find a new OG Xbox in stores. You will find a new Wii right next to the Wii U section.

Try again.


You obviously know nothing about marketing. The TC is correct. The Wii U also falls into this same category.
