At first I'll call it Xbox one. As far as a nicknames/short hand goes, I won't know until were into the next generation and it feels natural. I'm personally not obsessed with calling it "xbox" or "the xbox" like a lot of people seem to be. I'm not sure why so many are so eager to confuse the mindspace of hardware just because apple does it. If every console were called "the xbox" or "the playstation", you would have to constantly differentiate which system you were actually talking about. It's just like when you have to tack on a number to the Ipad in conversation because they're all called the same fucking thing. I guess you can chalk it up to the west coast gaming/tech media's obsession with Apple. I'm not into it. That being said, I'm not sold on shortening it to "the one" either. Like I said before, we'll just have to wait and see what comes natural when the generation gets kicking.
