Since the new Xbox is called Xbox One, what do we call the original Xbox released in 2001? (I searched if someone already asked this question and couldn't find it as a topic.)

Xbox 01, to stress that it's the one released in 2001.

If you listen to the dumptruck from Jeff, the dude calls it Xbox 1. So, that's confusing.

Now, that's just silly. Why would you call it "Xbox", when it's clearly named "Xbox"?

I choose to call it "Xbox Alpha" or simply, the Alpha.

This was my first thought when they revealed the name. They had to know this was going to cause some confusion.

On topic I'd say Xbox 2001.

@insouciant: You said it. The Original Xbox. That's what many people have called it for years. I've never heard it called the "Xbox 1". Sometimes you hear "First Xbox", but usually it's "The Original Xbox" or "The Old Xbox".

So, while some of us who care about nomenclature might find it a little confusing when talking about the history of Xbox, it's likely not going to be a practical problem in any significant way. The X1 is just something we'll get used to and most consumers will easily figure out.

"The original Xbox" is what I will go with, unless I want to mix it up in which case it will be the "Xbox Classic".

Xbox U. This is is the gen of confusing names, so MS should fuck with Nintendo's shit to make up for Sony playing it conservative with "PS4".

The "Forgot it Existed Xbox" since that's what Microsoft seems to do. Do they ever acknowledge that thing was even a thing?

Forget the original Xbox... What do we call the NEXT Xbox? Xbox One 2? This is a serious dilemma, duders.

@orange: Xbox One 2? Why not Xbox Two?

I call the first one "Xbox". The second one, I just called it "Xbox". This new one... I'm calling it "FUCKING SHIT!"

Back to the names...

As for PS. I called the 1:st one "Playstation/PS". I called PSOne "PSOne". Playstation 2, I called "Playstation 2/PS2". Playstation 3, "Playstation 3/PS3". I'm thinking about calling the new Playstation 4 the "Playstation 4/PS4".

So yes, the new shit from MS will be called "FUCKING SHIT!".
