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".

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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