'Xbone' Nickname Is Disrespectful, Says Major Nelson

Ever since its reveal in May, many have branded Microsoft's next consoles as "Xbone." This nickname didn't go down too well with Microsoft's Larry Hryb (Major Nelson), and says that the name disrespects the work done by the team behind the Xbox One.

When asked on NeoGAF what he thought of the nickname "Xbone," Hryb said "I don't like it. It disrespects the teams that have put in thousands of hours (already) into the development of the product. Sure, it's cheeky but I don't care for it myself." The Xbox One was also branded the Xbox One-Eighty due to Microsoft's multiple U-turns on the console.

The Xbox One will be released on the 22nd of November in 13 countries, arriveing at rest of the world in 2014.
