When the Xbox Series X name was first revealed i really disliked the name but I’ve come to like it over the past few months. One of the things that bothers me though is that there’s no universally agreed way to refer to the consoles as of right now. With PlayStation it’s as simple as “PS5”. Microsoft PR calls them Xbox Series X|S which is a mouth full for booth speech and text. When talking with a friend I’ll usually say…
or simply “Xbox”
On Reddit it’s even more of a mess as the Xbox community is split apart into like 5-6 different subreddits as there’s no 1 universal way to refer to the new consoles. Curious what XboxEra members call the next-gen Xbox when in conversation.
Definitely “Xbox Series” or refer to them in short forms XSX and XSS. Or if the place is more accustomed to the platform like this forum, I just go with “X” and “S” cuz absolutely no one gives a shit about base one s and x at this point, at least amongst those having conversation, which is mostly enthusiasts, therefore more relevant consoles being the new ones.
I’m too lazy to use the " | " symbol lol
Series X & Series S. For both I would say Series X and S for X|S. The main issue is that most people in my circle don’t even know there are 2 different consoles. So I have to say the “New Xbox” when they go “What are you talking about?”
