When making a product, many names must be cycled through until you find the correct one that suits the product perfectly and thats exactly what happened with the original Xbox .
Some of those names are just awful and I thought the name "ONE" was bad.
I always liked the idea of calling it Xenon or some such derivative. Honestly Xbox one seems pure laziness. Might as well have called it Xbox Obfuscation. Would have made more sense (Ha! irony alert) considering some of their cloudy policies on the system....
Glad I am a PC gamer. you Bitchy console fans will make an argument over the pettiest things. Its called "Xbox" ohhhhh lets troll about its stupid name because we feed off the teat of anything Sony pukes out. Stay classy folk.
Out of sheer sarcasm mind you. Does your computer have a name?
If you enjoy Pc games and ignore Consoles why click on a console Article??
@joe90 What, glad you're a PC gamer so that you can troll on a console thread and add absolutely nothing to the topic at hand? You actually think the argument you just posted is not petty? You just put yourself in the exact category that you're bagging on. Nice to see your expensive ass PC put to good use buddy. Stay classy he says right after a violent bout of verbal diarrhea.
@Morgue Yes it does have a name for my PC, I call her: FullyBackwardsCompatibleWithB etterExclusivesWithBetterHardw a reAndCheaperGamesThatAreTotall y FreeToModAsIPleaseAndDontGetN i ckleAndDimedForEverythingIWant A lsoIDoNotNeedToPayAMonthlyFeeT o PlayOnline AKA "Far Superior" @fenome At least i am not on here bagging on Xbox when i have no reason to as i own a PS3...See there is no difference.if i ended every post i make with "PS4 for Life" i am sure you would have nothing but nice things to say to me. @2pacalypsenow So why do Sony buyers comment on an Xbox section only to say how crap it is. Same goes i suppose.
Did you even read what I posted? I criticized the name "ONE", not, as you stated, "XBOX". I'd say something but it isn't worth losing a bubble over so I'll just vote to de-bubble you for trolling.
@joe So when do I post ps4 for life on anything dude? Yeah, I'm that shallow..riiiight... I don't care if you own every Sony product ever owned if you're being a douchebag I'm gonna call you on it. I don't care what you play, how you play it or what you play it on. What, you say you own a ps3 and it's just supposed to make your stupidity fly out the window. Annoying people own every console/computer/anything out there, I'm not biased by things people own. They can spend their money and free time how ever they want, but if they're just being a d*ck for no reason I'll call 'em on it. I don't need to wear a Naughty Dog t-shirt or paint my face with the playstation logo to show my support. I also don't need to criticize or put down people that don't happen to share the exact same opinion I have about something. I'm not that insecure. I'm a gamer, and that's a lifestyle, not a console or keyboard or specific game man. Find a new argument somewhere else would ya?
The name that was most commonly used was 720. People had been saying that for years. If they had any common sense they would have gone with the name that was already popular. It just shows how out of touch Microsoft was with there consumers. Instead they went with Xbox One. And in my opinion they were just fueling the console war by making people say Xbox Won all the time. For that reason alone i'm glad it blew up in there face.
i dont know. Xbox 2 circles? wtf? doubling 360 could also be seen as the namers of the next xbox were just being lazy.
Xbox 1 came out years ago. No need to buy a system that is 10 years old to me just because it has cloud support.
HAHA I gotta say I'd be ok with a huge marketing campaign behind the XON
Some of those names hurt to read.
Microsoft Interactive Theater should be One's name
Weird Xbox 360 was not named Xbox2 cuz people would think it was inferior and now Ps4 is coming out and they go back to Xbox 1?
I liked the rumoured name Xbox infinity... Far better than Xbox one... I remember before the originAl wii was releAsed it was codenamed the Nintendo revolution! I thought it sounded bad ass... Was going to buy one at laund until they revealed it called it a wii..... And I we got to see the revolution that is motion gaming.... No thanks I like sitting Down and pressing buttons
