Edit - Double Post. :(



Worst name ever. It's a tongue twister and learns nothing from the WiiU naming farce.

 

Why didn't they call it XBoxOneWithKnuckles?



Wow the XboneX now it really does sound like a sex toy for women.

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

"When you set your console resolution to 4K UHD, everything on the console—Home, games, and apps—will display at 4K. 4K content is displayed in its native 4K resolution, and other content (like 1080p content) is upscaled to 4K."

We all know that it's barely upscaling and Microsoft is trying to distract you and trick you with the word "content". Phil Spencer always uses the word "content" over the word "games" most of the time. It's a bullshit bait and switch that actually gets to the more casual market. Tons of uneducated gamers thought the Xbox One S was the answer to the PS4 Pro. Now I wonder if they will fail to know the difference between the Xbox One S and the Xbox One X. Perhaps they will see two 4k machines and go with the cheaper price? This naming is more confusing than the Wii U's name to the untrained casuals.

Last year all the XBox One S bundles had the 4K logo on Bestbuy.ca while ps4 pro only had a core model and no 4K. The 4K logo is gone now and the description has been adjusted as well to 4K video and HDR games. But true, the whole 4K marketing angle has already been heavily used last year.

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.

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.  

I thought you were going for Direct X. Which would have also made a lot of sense to the few who know what it is and what it means to Xbox, but it wouldn't mean anything to the large majority of people. Not like X means anything to them either though. Deluxe would have been a good name as well. XB could have done the same thing I suggested and just left the meaning of the name out and let people make up their own mind. Is it Deluxe, Direct X?



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.
