Just wait for John to find these. He will post it along with a misleading title and factually incorrect article to go with it.

"Beta tested in the future"?

Is that their way of saying "expect this thing to break"?

Guys please, don't hate too much on the reporters, after all the tagline is 'Where unprofessional journalism looks better'

Don't think they're that bad slogans actually. If you actually understand it of course.

That's why people call it that. Major Nelson already said the team hates that name. You could start calling it the POS4 if you wanted to stoop to their level though.

Terrible slogans and quite simply symptomatic of the appalling marketing/PR Microsoft have had from the start with this thing. I've said it before that it seems like Microsoft dont even know what is good about the Xbox One, they are all over the place.

Oh come on, they're quite tacky and lame but MS clearly means business with this much of an advertisement drive this early on. The average joe will just be really excited to see advertisements of a new console generation.

which still the team fault why this happens.
They have all the time to came up with better name for the new console,
and predicts how people might reacts and call it instead.

And yet they whine because they got the hints that the reality is not what they hope to be.
