When Microsoft revealed that the next-gen Xbox’s name was going to be Xbox One, some people clambered to think of a shorthand term for it right off the gate.

Of course, that’s easier said than done since it’s not as easy as the Xbox 360 being nicknamed the X360 or Sony’s consoles continuing with numerical names (PlayStation 4 = PS4).

Unfortunately or fortunately — depending on your point-of-view — some people have nicknamed the Xbox One as “Xbone,” since it’s a play on Xbox, the word One, and the fact that some people considered Microsoft’s original DRM scheme for it as “boning” consumers.
