Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Better Name for Xbox One?

It's been a few years, and the system's done pretty well in spite of a few setbacks, but one setback still kinda annoys me; I think the name Xbox One is stupid.

As seen with the Wii U, a poorly thought out name can seriously hurt a game system's commercial performance. I believe that, had it been given a better name, the Xbox One would've done much better than it has now, but what would be the better name to give it?

I was thinking maybe Xbox Trinity, Xbox Trident, or something along the lines of Tripple Xbox.

Well, that's my take on the topic, how about you?

The wii U name was a horrible name because people thought the gamepad was an extension of the wii.

No one thinks the Xbox one is an extensive of the Xbox.

But there are still people who thought it was the original Xbox, even though it looked a lot different from the original.



Should have just been Xbox 3.

The name Xbox One doesn't seem annoying to me.



Proud to be a Californian.

Considering there's meaning behind it, its alright, not the worse name for a console.



Xbox 720 or Xbox 3 would have been far more fitting.
Xbox One was just a silly name.

its not a great name.

Dreamcast, Playstation, Xbox, Gamecube, Switch all great names.

But the XBox One isn't a terrible name either. They didn't want to name it the Xbox 3 because it looks bad next to the Playstation 4 and I understand that, I think in the end the name isn't what caused the XBox One to fail, but it was everything around it. Luckely we punished this bad behaviour bad and now its actually quite a nice platform :)

I wonder what the next name will be in the xbox console brand!!
