    Xbox One AKA XBone -- what on earth did they expect

    Did the creatives at MS not spot the obvious nickname, surely they must have. Perhaps they did and they rather liked the moniker XBone. I do think 'boner' though when I see it, so it strikes me as a ridiculous nickname, rather than cool or quirky.

    I doubt they anticipated that any obvious name-calling would occur - this is the same outfit that conceived of Windows 8 and Windows Blue (to say nothing of Vista).

    Maybe they were thinking "Cross-bones", as in Skull and?
