Poll: So how will we abbreviate the Xbox One? (404 votes)

Xbox 1 3%
X1 27%
XOne/X-One/X One 17%
One 6%
Xbox 36%
Other 24%

Imagine you're discussing an upcoming Xbox One game on the forums, or just talking about the console in general. How will you refer to it when not spelling out "Xbox One" in full? Obviously you're not forced to a single choice.

The PS4 is pretty obvious, following tradition from previous versions of PlayStation consoles. This silly name leaves some room for ambiguity though.

XBone

I've seen X360 sometimes, so X1?

#4 Posted by Raven10 (2067 posts) -

Definitely just One. Just like I called the Xbox 360 the 360.

#5 Posted by AngelN7 (3000 posts) -

X01

#6 Posted by Klei (1799 posts) -

I always called the xbox and xbox 360 simply '' xbox ''. And I will keep doing it, since the 360 will become irrelevant in a couple of months, the xbox one will be the one to take the mantle of the '' xbox ''.

Calling it "One" will end up sounding like an Abbott and Costello routine:

"So I was playing One yesterday..."

"One what?"

"The One gaming console."

"Which one?"

"My One."

"No, which console?"

"I just told you which one!"

"That's what I'd like to know!"

Dude...Xbone.

#15 Posted by BeachThunder (13298 posts) -

Xone - pronounced "zone".

I didn't think of it until I saw it here, but I'm on board with the XBone.

#19 Posted by MuttersomeTaxicab (790 posts) -

Xbone is the clear choice, here.

#20 Posted by Xymox (2161 posts) -

Yup, the X-bone

#23 Posted by Winternet (8258 posts) -

Uhh, Xbone, obviously.

#24 Posted by BoOzak (1047 posts) -

XI

I know that's technicly 11 in roman numerals but it sounds better than Xbox One.

#25 Posted by Blu3V3nom07 (4213 posts) -

yeah that works. easy to say

#29 Posted by Jimbo (10267 posts) -

'X1' is better than 'Xbox' in every conceivable way. It's cooler, shorter, unambiguous and sounds way more like a spaceship or a killer robot.

#30 Posted by Dylabaloo (1573 posts) -

The Xbone.

#31 Posted by MentalDisruption (1785 posts) -

I'm liking X1.

Xbone. It sounds like a Bone Thugs n Harmony member. In fact over time it'll probably be shortened to just Bone. The kids will refer to playing games as boning.

#36 Edited by devilzrule27 (1241 posts) -

XBO

#37 Posted by SpaceRunaway (900 posts) -

X1 has a pretty nice ring to it. It sounds like it could have been the name of some piece of 80s consumer a/v hardware too, so it has that going for it.

I also like Xone, pronounced, "zone". So like you could be like, "I'm all in the [insert television show] Xone right now", or "Hang on, I'm using my Kinect to order a P'zone".

#38 Edited by CreepyUncleBrad (205 posts) -

The correct answer is Xbone

#39 Posted by RetroMetal (259 posts) -

XB1?

#40 Posted by 49th (3116 posts) -

Xbone is actually kind of catchy. Sound like some kind of pirate thing. Arrr

XBOne

So basically Denis Dyack was right about the One console future?

#43 Posted by DoctorTran (1584 posts) -

If we're talking about the different generations of Xbox's then I vote X1... however to me. Xbox is an xbox is an xbox.

#44 Posted by FirebirdINF (283 posts) -

Xbone is good.

DA BONE, YO!

#45 Posted by Marino (5556 posts) -

In terms of the database, it's XONE.

Fuck the Xbone, #teamboneless.

#48 Posted by Bane122 (909 posts) -

Xbox. The original Xbox is just that, the original Xbox... or first Xbox. Really, how often does that system come up in conversation anyway?

#49 Posted by WolfHazard (593 posts) -

Xbox Neo

#50 Posted by Reisz (1607 posts) -

I'm still all for Xbox 25 from that exclusive under seat, pre-conference reveal.

otherwise though:

2001: Old Xbox

2005: 360

2013: XBOX
