The Xbox 360 was just "360". The PlayStation 3, PS3.

The PlayStation 4 has obviously been abbreviated to PS4, but what abbreviation do you think will be adopted for the Xbox One?

So far I've seen Xbone ( :x ) XB1 (pronounced EX-Bee-One) or simply Xbox.

I really hope Xbone isn't the one. It sounds so stupid.

XBO, X1, XB1, XO. I prefer XO or X1 because I like shorthand stuff. but XBO isn't bad...just reminds me of HBO.

I think people will just call it an Xbox One. It's hard to abbreviate Xbox as it's very short already.

Posted this in the other thread. Suppose it's better off in here.

X.O
X.BO
X.B.O
Xbox.O
X.B.One
X.One
X.1

Dots are just to show pronunciation, so...

XO
XBO
XboxO
XBOne
XOne
X1

I'm thinking XBO

I think people are going to refer to it as 'One'.
