I am curious.Why they name the new XBOX......XBOXone...??First it was the XBOX then the XBOX360 but now we have the XBOXone.:|

Seriously....isn't this dumb...??

First time i was heard of this i thought that it was a special edition of the first XBOX.

XBOXone...??Why not XBOX 720 or XBOX 3...??

Because MS marketing people are a bit daft. Its supposed to be your one stop for all your entertainment needs or some equally stupid concept I think.

Should've called it the Xbox Freedom.

Kind of sucks when trying to look up things about their original masterpiece console. I search for Xbox 1 and all I get is information on the new shitbox.

The one console you have to have.

Perhaps it's a foreshadowing of where the consoles end up in the system war..

Xbox One = first place

PC = second place

Wii U = U place

PS4 = fourth place

:P

Thank you PC.

Just call it 720, like most people were before it got revealed. The main reason is it's supposed to be a "One" machine entertainment center - TV, Online Video Chat, gaming - a consolized PC, basically. It's an extension of everything that started with 360.
#19 Posted by Heil68 (46442 posts) -
It clearly should be named X180.
#20 Posted by WilliamRLBaker (28465 posts) -

Eh its marketing, but atleast its not nearly as abortive and stupid as psp squirls, dust balls, portable cheese, and portable nut.

I just wish people on forums would just call it Xbox or X1. Xbone is the dumbest name.

When did he say that in a thread? I heard about it, but never read it myself.

Xbone (the name)  started as a joke but I kinda like it now.

I think in terms of what the business model was that Microsoft has always sought in the console space, the XBox One was a realization of those goals.  The first XBox was just a huge expense to get into the game against Sony.  The XBox 360 was a real earnest play at building the brand name.  The XBox One is the services delivery model that they have wanted from the start.  So, for Microsoft, the XBox One really is the beginning of what they had envisioned they would do with the brand all along.

looking back at few months xbox180 would have been perfect name :P
#28 Posted by clr84651 (5537 posts) -

Because MS is going back to where they were in the console race with the first xbox, behind Sony. Way behind Sony. 

They made xbox 1, did a 360, and now theyre at xbox 1 again.

Because pretentiousness is cool...apparently.

#30 Posted by TheDidact (3986 posts) -
Prediction: Xbox Infinity, enter a world of infinite possibilities. Reality: Xbox One lol, it's one box for everything even though you need to hook up a cable box to it to watch TV or a 360 console to it to play 360 games on it.

Seriously, nobody calls the PS4 the PSfour.

 

so i dont get why people are calling it the XBone over the XB1, or simply X1.

Yeah. It's hard to find anyone that doesn't agree the name is stupid.

Whenever I bring up the console to my friends that don't pay much attention to the news, they say, "Wait, you mean the original Xbox?" "No, the new Xbox. It's called Xbox One." "Why the hell did they call it Xbox One? That sounds retarded!"

I'm glad Sony just went with "PlayStation 4" instead of that "Orbis" rumor. Blegh. Bad enough Nintendo went with "Wii-U".

Still don't get a lot of the articles I used to read and post because search engines have them buried under hundreds of pages of next gen garbage.

Probably to do with them combining numerous entertainment devices, into a single machine.
