Xbox Live Marketplace however is still ingrained in my head, much as how the Rogers Centre is still known to me as the Skydome.

I still don't understand why they wouldn't go with Rogers Skydome. Seems like a no brainer.

Good, marketplace made it seem like you could haggle and buy counterfeit goods.

I kid you not, for the longest time I thought the Skydome was under renovation and the Rogers Centre was just the temporary home for the Jays. I was a little heartbroken the day I discovered they had renamed the Legendary SKYDOME after a cable company. Still have my Skydome cap I got when I was 5.

Also, it will always be "Top Gun" at "Paramount Canada's Wonderland".

They call it Flight Deck because either Viacom sold the rights or it expired. :(

Personally, the name change is cool.

We'll just have to abbreviate it to XGS instead of XBL.

I was playing the free MLB the Show Homerun Derby and hadn't noticed the venue for several hours. Then I started noticing the Mets' insignia and said to my buddy, "Oh, they're at Shea Stadium." He corrected me and I got instantly offended that they couldn't have called it Citibank's New Shea Stadium or something.

I get that these companies forked over millions to get these places built, but why not still keep these old names alive?
Nothing is over-rated. Your opinion is just outnumbered.
