I never understood why ppl get upset over that. What makes the name offensive?

Context.

The majority of idiots that use it are anti-Xbox trolls that only post to antagonize the regular users of this board.

I've never heard anyone call it that except when these topics pop up on here.

I have heard people call the SNES the Snez though, and that really annoys me.


Snez is what pretty much everyone in Europe calls it @ChubbierTube
A garbage pod!? It's a smegging garbage pod!

I'm ok with XONE, XB1, X1, or XBONE, but it needs to be capitalized.

Like you calling it the 'bone?

Yep exactly! Its not the nickname "xbone" that bothers me, it is the way it is used. Hardcore PS4 fanboys and as you say, anti-Xbox One trolls use "xbone" to lull everyone into a false sense of security and misguided lie that the PS4 is infinitely more superior and that the Xbox One is garbage. Higher sales numbers and more exclusives don't mean s*** to me. If the PS4 is so much better then how come I have 30 plus Xbox One games and only 10 PS4 games? I know i'm not the only onee either!

yes. because its a pretty stupid way to acronym the name.
and a failed attempt to be funny with a very obvious pun, which automatically makes it NOT funny.

do not mention me, otherwise its grounds for modding for harassment, and put on ignored.
