I like the term XBone. Actually i think its better than XBOX One... what were they thinking? 

This is coming from someone who already has his XBone bought and paid for.

Yeah, Thanks a lot Microsoft! I've been using the online gaming alias XBones (Short for crossbones) since playing Asheron's Call 1. Heck even my GameSpot account is XBones as well as many other accounts and email.

Thanks for associating my alias with your controversial POS system.

I've been Microshafted once again.

The English language fails so miserably in defining the countless nuances of cuteness.  And, because of this I am without words.

Like MS had a choice about the Xbone name, lol.

People tend to forget. They got the Xbone name because of all the policies that seem to screw over the average gamer. Then they gradually changed their policy, but the name stuck. Too late. Once you get a nickname it's hard to get rid off it. Every time this thing fails, people will scream "Ahaha, that's Xbone for you, mothatrucka" and so on and so forth.

Lets be for fucking real for a second...Xbone is no competition for Ps4.....at all

At risk of sounding like a key board Casanova I would just like to say that at 26 I am still looking for a girl like Jess attractive and a geek. There was an opportunity once but that girl is getting married tomorrow. Lesson, no guts no glory. Pah. Mushy sentiment. Sorry random Gamespot users, I will try not to show that kind of weakness again.

Feel free to awkwardly maneuver around the above paragraph, like trying not to sit next to the town weirdo on the bus.

Xbox One, XBone - who cares

No prob. with XBone.  I say "XBOX" for any MS game console and no one gets confused.  XBone will stick but only when folks want to insult but not otherwise.

Bit of a silly move of from Ms imo... They would have been better off ignoring it so it just stayed a silly word used against them.... It's like them agreeing 360 is a RRoDbox...


Oh well... I guess it's official now... XBone... woof woof lol.

Call me crazy but I'm pretty sure that they were calling it "Xbone" before they reversed their policy because they were essentially bending the customer over and giving them the "bone".

I was jaded but excited at the idea of the PS4 (pre-ordered one infact, which I canceled), but it's all just a joke, and a enough is enough.

iphones have 64-bit processing now for god sake.

Consoles, as we know it, are over.

ALL video games will be nothing more then apps on different devices. Guess what, that's already happened.

iPads sell more games (proper or otherwise) then a Vita or any other game mobile device.

These big companies are trying to sell you something you no longer need.

I'm feeling jaded before these consoles are even released. All this constant bickering between sets of fanboys, coupled with the daily press releases and total over exposure. Maybe it's time for me to move to a log cabin in the woods somewhere.

You remind me of a scene kid that jumps on the wagon when something is cool! It's a damn machine that does everything the precious PS4 does - and to be quite honest what would you be doing if Sony, MS or any game dev never existed?

I understand the fact Sony, MS and such..need you as much as you need them but gamers are annoying me I see more people on this damn site then I could bet they ever play any damn games! All they want to do is whinge and carry on cause everyone isn't giving them what they want all the time!

The comment section is for realistic conversation about a topic and not a halfwit hangout for stupidity and retards to spew absolute nonsense! Grow the fuck up!

@Trickymaster Uhhhh...NO. They got the XBone name because XBOX abbreviated is XB and one put next to that is XBone. LOL you fanboys really think you are special. I have been typing it that way since the announcement and didnt notice the "bone" aspect until it was mentioned. You should also watch the video, the MS guy even says he never saw it that way and he'd been looking at the name for months.

@raduz123 You don't necessarily want to be competing with someone else for a woman's attention. If she married another guy, that is probably because she has legitimate interest in him and if she had legitimate interest in you, i think she'd find ways to drop hints without it requiring too much "guts" on your end.

@jetjetjaguar I dont even think it is insulting. It wasnt derived from an insult at all. Its just what happened when the two words were abbreviated.

@blakeney its not used against them. There is nothing offensive by the term. I think its cool that they are embracing it.

@focuspullerhuh? Dafuq are you talking about?

"These big companies are trying to sell you something you no longer need." -Who NEEDS games? LOL! Talk about first world problems.

@Ayato_Kamina_1 Maybe because you're finally realizing that we don't actually need consoles after all and it's a huge wast of money, especially looking 5 years into the future?

@amillionhp @raduz123 Interesting........comment raduz, sounds like you were feeling a bit emotional at the time of posting :).

@amillionhp I think we can both agree on your point, though raduz's comment doesn't specify when he had his opportunity and when the person of interest to him met their fiance.
