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.

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

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!"

I like you.

They can reference another old time radio show and call it "X Minus One".

#57 Posted by deox (247 posts) -

I'm sure most people will just call it, Xbox.

X1 sounds fucking awesome, though.

XBO Let's be honest we are all going to say "eX-Bee-Oh". It will be XBO, because that is short and easy to say.

I've taken to calling it the X1 already. Because it sounds cooler than Xbox One. XONE is cool too.

#65 Posted by ApolloBob (577 posts) -

I gave Tuffy what all good bitches XBONE

#66 Posted by ArbitraryWater (12897 posts) -

X1 sounds like a prototype gauss rifle that one would use to blow tanks in half, so I vote for that. Or XB1, which has a similar effect.

#67 Posted by rachelepithet (1639 posts) -

Roman numeral that shit. Xbox I, XI, Xi, xi, xI. Extra Large. Or "Chie".

#68 Posted by Dethfish (3739 posts) -

X1 'cause it sounds like the future.

#69 Posted by Winsord (1452 posts) -

I'm quite partial to X1, mostly because it makes me think of the Red Bull X2010, commonly referred to as the X1 prototype.

I think Xbone is going to win this battle in the end.

#74 Posted by YOU_DIED (712 posts) -

#75 Posted by Seppli (11233 posts) -

Other. As in Ex-Oh. XO for short.

#76 Edited by Skytylz (4070 posts) -

Xbone. How is that not an option?

#77 Edited by MordeaniisChaos (5904 posts) -



So the SeXbox basically.

#78 Posted by villainy (651 posts) -

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

Seriously. Stupid me voted Xbox before reading comments.

#79 Posted by rachelepithet (1639 posts) -

No Xbox 360 II which means Final Fantasy Vs 13 II will never come out

#80 Posted by JouselDelka (981 posts) -

X1 just like the X360 and PS4

Xbone is funny but you guys are taking the joke too far, it sounds like you're being serious!

#81 Posted by MiniPato (2808 posts) -

El Exboxo

#82 Posted by donfonzie (237 posts) -

I believe the word you are looking for is Xbone.

#83 Posted by WickedFather (1694 posts) -

Herpes Simplex 10, or SexPox1, or XBox One actually sold, or the thing that lives under the sink.

I am someone that says "let's play some 360" instead of "let's play some xbox"

#86 Posted by hidys (1063 posts) -

I'm leaning towards Xbone.

#87 Edited by DrSwank (509 posts) -

I'm sticking with XBOX 720, because frig the man.

#90 Posted by SaturdayNightSpecials (2536 posts) -

I like X1, for when past Xboxes are part of the conversation. It's short.

#91 Edited by Gruebacca (677 posts) -

2013: New Xbox

2015: Xbox

2020: The One

Now that I think about it, I think the reasoning behind the name is so that people call it "The One" in the near future.

#92 Posted by golguin (4591 posts) -

I believe it is "Xbone" since that is what we are all getting thanks to their "fee" for playing used and borrowed games.
