Similar to a thread that was up a couple of days ago, I want to know how some parents call your 360.

My case is kinda funny cause I've been gaming since the early 90's, I was 6 or 7 at the time, and I had a NES... After that, every new console that comes is automatically called "Nintendo" by my mom. Nowadays I have 2 nintendos in my house: a "white nintendo" in my room (360) and a black nintendo in the living room (ps3).

If you have some stories, don't hesitate to post!

My dad calls it the "360" but he actually plays it, albeit just sports games. But my mom has been know to call it the "Wii" or "Playstation" on occasion. But most of the time she calles it the "Xbox".

well i think my mom has finally started to call it an xbox after i have corrected her many times, its not a nintendo! My dad on the other hand calls it a variety of things, so far i have heard game box, nintendo, playstation and "that game thing whatever you call it". He even play it sometimes and doesnt know.

Xbox. Although the default when I'm playing video game is that "I'm on my computer" but thats just because I used to be purely a pc gamer and now I play both.

LOL - this thread is kinds funny. :)

Since I haven't lived at home for almost 20 years and at the time consoles were only for geeks - my parents never really knew what I was doing with my computers or othe electronic equipment. So they pretty much looked at me weird not knowing why anyone would spend time building electronic devices and such. LOL - luckily by the time Intel coined the name "Pentium" they got a little interested. :P

All your stories about your parents are entertaining though - most of them were my peers growing up and it sounds like they are about as oblivious now as they were then...

no offense. :P

My dad pulls up a flashlight shines it across his face and with a deep scary voice and calls it THE XBOX, no but seriously it is for some reason THE xbox.

However my dad loves THE wii, and likes to show it off to every single person that enters my house :( ..... i think its cause he can actually use it.

when i was a kid, i had a Nintendo 64 and before that an NES my mom would always refer to them as VCR's...

when i was 14 i got a Playstation 2 for christmas and she then reffered to it as a DVD player.... i always thought it was really funny because the systems she called "VCR" used Cartridges and the first disc based console i owned was called a "DVD" nowadays whenever i talk to her she always refer's to my systems by the correct name, either Playstation for the PS2 and PS3, or Xbox for the 360... which is impressive enough to me because i know how older people can confuse the names of all these gaming devices... i can certainly understand their confusion.

My Dad calls it the "idiot-box" (atleast he's half-right) or the 360 (hooray for an actual tech-savvie parent!). My Mom...I don't see her that much. She doesn't come up to the Man-Cave that often, but I think she'd call it "game".

My mom, when I got my first 360, referred to it as a "box-60". No joke. I found it hilarious, I was on the floor laughing.

"that thing"

"the thing"

"thingy"

"thing-a-ling"

Either one of those, or my parents don't even acknowledge it's there.
