The Name Xbox One is a disrespect to gaming.
Bellcross  +   885d ago
He just made it worse...

It's certainly foolish and shows the childlike mentality of a person who uses the term to diss the console. Of course, I've seen people call it Xbone that are huge Xbox fans and have already preordered, so it depends on the context in which it's being used.
xxV0rschlaghammer  +   885d ago
I use it pretty jokingly because honestly it's a pretty immature name, sounds like something you'd hear in the 1st or 2nd grade, but as for myself I have the system pre-ordered, so it doesn't affect me either way.

There's a lot of stuff we don't like Larry,for me it's the Xbox one itself, but you just gotta stomach it.So nut up or shut up.

Any remember the Nintendo Revolution? I was so pumped when it was announced with that name. Then we got the Wii. Ugh.

Xbox Infinity? Awww snap. Then we got the Xbox One. Ugh again.

Yeah like the name ps4 is genius! I wonder how long it took to come up with that one?
MasterCornholio  +   885d ago
Dont want people to call your console an XBONE?

Just get a 360.

I don't call it Xbone. It implies it's hardcore and makes you hard. Its neither.
Ps4 is though :)

oh and trying to screw gamers over with the most anti console policies in history was not disrespectful? i'm still waiting for a formal apology M$.

even then i still wouldn't buy your console. it's just principle at this point.
xxV0rschlaghammer  +   885d ago
Lets face it, 90% of the people complaining were never going to buy it anyways, regardless of what their policies were or are.

It's a thing not a person; how can it be disrespectful? I do not understand why he's crying about something so trivial. I think he's just trying to make the console more important than it is, IMHO.

Looking at Major Nelson and seeing some of the news he comes up in,he seems no different than the usual Xbox fans on this site.Sometimes I honestly feel kind sorry for the guy trying to make something as horrid as the xbone look appealing he should go ask for a job at Sony.
Ko_Uraki  +   885d ago
If the console is good (and I'm quite sure of it) everyone will love the "xbone"
Wise_potato  +   885d ago
Too many game extremist here, its noting but gaming, not sure if you guys got some jobs to do, STFU
AceBlazer13  +   885d ago
I see you have conformed to the idea that being passionate about gaming means you have no life.But a little dose of reality most of us live the same way as you just happier cause we actually have passion for something.
gigoran  +   885d ago
That's fine. We can go back to calling it what we used to, a piece of S _ _ T!
gigoran  +   885d ago
While on the subject, I Xboned his sister last night, Bill Gates style (in the pooper)
PSWiiKing  +   885d ago
When Microsoft named the new XBox, XBox One, you have to expect some name calling dude.
SonyAddict  +   885d ago
They could have called it the
OxO cube but then they might have
got sued,but none the less!,that's
a kind of catchy sort of name,eh!?
Ahhh never mind...

The funny thing is, if this was all reversed and Sony had some policies people didn't like and decided to CHANGE them before the console ever released to the will of consumers, and garnered some sort of stupid nickname, and a Sony rep came out and said it was disrespectful all you'd see is Sony fans going "Oh it's totally disrespectful, people dedicated thousands of hours of their life to work on this product, etc etc" and agreeing 100%.
WeAreLegion  +   884d ago
No. Many of us actually claimed openly on N4G before E3 that if Sony pulled the DRM/no used games crap on us, we'd go strictly Steam.

Sony has a loyal fanbase because they respect their customers. When they make mistakes, they apologize for those mistakes.
xxV0rschlaghammer  +   883d ago
So jump ship from one DRM platform to the other? Makes sense.

No, the fact is that anytime Sony does ANYTHING the fans eat it up like it's pure gold, regardless of what it is.

Sony doesn't respect their customers anymore than any other business, every ones got these rose-colored glasses for major companies (Sony, MS, Nintendo, whoever else) thinking that one or the other is more for the consumer or respects their customers more, the fact is, none of them really give 2 thoughts to anyone and the only thing any of them care about is making money.
ShwankyShpanky  +   884d ago
But they didn't. So it's moot. And here we are.
Animal Mutha 76  +   885d ago
I tend to agree. No need to play on name of either console - it just shows you up as either a fanboy or immature.
xxV0rschlaghammer  +   885d ago
Exactly, I'm not a fanboy in the least, I own a PS3, 360, Wii, Wii U, I just happen to prefer the launch X1 games, the fact that their getting dedicated servers and a few other features more so I'm getting it first, because to be honest no launch games for the PS4 really interest me, as soon as an Uncharted style game or something close is announced I'll probably pick one up.
g-nome  +   885d ago
Well now you've just gone and made it an even more popular name.
TemplarDante  +   885d ago
Major Nelson doesnt like the name Xbone? Does he also not like his real name, Larry Hyrb.
Guess what Larry? I like Xbone.
Call_Of_Doggy  +   885d ago
Xbone is a fitting name. Major Nelson. Dont get your panties in a bunch son.
ICANPLAYGAMES2  +   885d ago
It's just a nickname, who really cares? I just find it interesting that he doesn't find lying and misleading potential consumers disrespectful. Some people are confused and even a little wary of your products and brand, for a reason, no one wants to be a sucker.
nix  +   885d ago
i always try to call it Xbox One but from today... i'm just gonna call it Xbone.

SpongebobGAF  +   885d ago
Wow, I asked this question.
Monkeyonfire13  +   885d ago
Should have thought about that BEFORE he named it Xbox one. or Xb one...Xbone. Way to go dude
NobleRed  +   884d ago
That happens If you are not smart enough to get a proper name for a console.

Deal with it.
