Of for goodness sake, weren't they paying attention when Nintendo added a meaningless letter to the end of a console's predecessor? Why not Xbox One DX? That has an actual meaning. And it sounds similar to Xbox One S while looking the same...

And before anyone points out the S, "S" has an obvious meaning: small or slim. X doesn't convey any positive meaning unless I've stepped out of a time warp into the year 2000.

Xbox One SX actually sounds really cool.  Considering the X sku is smaller than the S, it would have made some sense as well. However, with all of the XxX jokes already going around the web, and considering XB's prior E naming scheme, adding that to the SX could create enough meme's to melt the net. Basically ever since they decided on the One console name they screwed themselves for the entire gen.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

I think when people talk about it I'm going to think they're talking about Xenoblade Chronicles X.



Anyone weho voted "epic" needs to go to the hospital.

Its an "ok" name as it at least fits in the current family of consoles and its pretty clear what it does just like the ps4 pro.

Obviously the original consoles didn't have a great name so this one isn't great either.

Well yes but DX at least has a distinct, pre-established meaning:  Deluxe.  And it's positive.  Adding on X by itself though was rather boneheaded.  



In case it has escaped anyone at this point, the acronym for Xbox One X can be XBOX.

Is it me though, or does Xbox One X sound too similar to Xbox One S?
If you talk to someone with a lisp, you're shit out of luck.

Should have gone Xbox 4k and pushed that marketing angle.

They already pushed that marketing angle with the Xbox One S, which was a lie. https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-one/console/4k-on-xbox-one-s

I am aware.
 
But the Xbox One S isn't called the Xbox 4k/Xbox One 4k.

No it's not and that's fair. I do agree that it should have been called the Xbox 4k or simply just the Xbox Scorpio. Though I suppose "Xbox One X" does make it clear that it's a mid-gen refresh rather than a new console generation and Xbox One X could translate to "Xbox One 10" with the push of Windows 10 cross play?

Is it pronounced X, Cross or 10?

Actually it's not an ex, but a Greek uppercase chi, that's also an abbreviation for Christ, so it will be pronounced "Christ Box One Christ".
In the Bible Belt it will sell like hot cakes!
Some naughty people will call it "Christ BOne Christ", but bigots will try to stone them to death.

X means 10 in Roman 😉



I think that's a very good name that fits the console very well!
