The name would have been perfect if you could plug multiple XBox One Xs together for even more power.

So... is this the new Xbox thread now, in place of the "Durango" one? Or is this just for the new console only?

I think this thread is for mocking the X.B.O.X. only

Serious talk: barring winning the lottery, or a rich relative suddenly kicking the bucket, is anybody besides HarlequinPanic seriously contemplating an upgrade? Because that's too expensive for the meager number of exclusives this is going to get, and it gets worse if you already have an Xbone - like I do - gathering dust.

Gamestop's current trade in value for an OG Xbone is...

$75

An S will fetch more. Your kinect will be worthless.

Best I'm expecting is a double value promotion at gamestop like they did when the pro came out. I'm also unloading a Wii U before all the switchports get announced to go toward the fund as well.

So just, so I'm clear on this.

There are now 3 Separate Xbox Ones, right?

There is one model no longer on the marketplace, the slim and the x, not unlike sony's current SKUs at retail.

I got 50$ for my kinect. I traded to get Gears 4. Good trade imo. :P

I feel like I was just laughing at the Xbox One's name a few minutes go. Man. Console generations feel shorter every time (even though they're not).

They should have called it the XBONER.

It's kind of impressive that Microsoft is able to keep one upping themselves with terrible names.

Terrible name aside, I can see how it wouldn't be a bad idea if you wanted to get an Xbox of some sort for a long time but never got around to it? OG backwards compatibility + beefy horsepower for current games means you can basically play everything (and run it well) in the Xbox library right? Does it play 360 games too?

A random list of them, just like how the 360 played a random list of Xbox games.

I would just get a Windows 10 PC and play third party stuff elsewhere.

A far better random list.

Like it's easy to discount it's utility, but personally I have got a lot of juice from it and even just linking that I see they added Hard Corps Uprising to that list, which is just fab.

I guess Sony was smart to just sequentially name the PlayStations.

Xbox OnenO xobX would be good because then its name would be a palindrome.

As the old saying goes, good names aren't always palindromes, but every palindrome is a good name.
