That’s a f**king confusing name. What the f**k’s going on with Microsoft? They’re losing it, man. What the f**k is going on? Like Series S, X, Mex, Next. I mean, who knows this? Come on. Madness. Call it the Microsoft Box and that’s it. I don’t know. It’s a total f**king mess. Trust me, even them, they’re confused in their offices. What is this X, S… I don’t know, what the

Series X and Series S....doesn't exactly sound complicated. It's not like they are priced the same.

I get the confusion and rightfully so, but let's not forget the name Wii U. Nintendo had to create commercials to actually clear up its confusing name. I enjoyed the Wii U so don't hate me :)

Josef is a little extra, but he is right

"I dont get the confusion". Of course not, nerd. You are posting on a gaming forum.

Of those more than 100M console players, how many of them have any knowledge about gaming?

They know that the Series X is better than the Series S due to the price difference, or because the dude at Gamestop told them so.

Marketing wise, its a mess. But that's Microsoft for you.

Going from Xbox to XBox 36o was already "lol what?". Then going from 360 to One. And now this.

So next gen, how is it gonna be? Xbox 2 Series X and S?

From here on it’ll be:
Xbox Series 2
Xbox Series 3
Xbox Series 4
And so on, like Apple Watch.

Or maybe Xbox 7
Xbox(1), Xbox 360(2), Xbox One(3), Xbox One X(4), Xbox Series S(5), Xbox Series X(6), Xbox 7 (7)

Should’ve called this one:
Xbox 10
Because of Windows 10

Ah this guy.

The guy who made a name for himself at that game show cussing and being hip.

Then he tried to do it again in December and it fell flat as he messed up his lines he didn't memorize

Now it's cussing at MS. Third times a charm! lol

I don't get the confusion. People have bought cell phones for decades now just fine, and they have always had asinine naming schemes.
