    They actually can, by just naming it that.
    The argument about stupid people not understanding doesn’t hold up with the current naming conventions anyway. It seeming less than the completion is true but it’s still more simple than the mental gymnastics required with what they’re doing.

    They really need to rethink their naming strategy. It's not a winner and confusing.

    So will there be an Xbox Series S too?

    If it's significantly cheaper and still has the same CPU and SSD, I'd probably consider that.

    As confusing as the xbox one? I think they'll be ok.

    IT just sounds shit. Saying out loud feels weird and sound shit, shortening it to Xbox series or Xbox X sound as dumb as saying the full name.

    Its really a bad bad name.

    Not sure why they've gone with the 2001 monolith design but hey ho, if it plays games and doesn't cost a squillion pounds I'll probably bite.

    It's not that, that's the issue. It's the fact it's almost identical to there last consoles name.

    They really need to push their exclusives this next gen. I'm not interested in Halo or Gears.

    It's got the same problem as the now so-called "original Xbox" - you cant shorten the name. You have to say "Xbox series X" all the way through or you're accidentally referring to a different console.

    And the abbreviation XSX is loathsome

    Definite Wii U vibes. Frightened to abandon the successful X suffix, so they've come up with something fucking retarded

    I can't get over how short the life cycle of the X was especially considering the price.

    EDIT: I mean the Xbox One X. I mean seriously what the fuck here guys

    I feel like it's going to be still available and the low entry point to next gen.

    @JamboWayOh if they update the CPU and give it an SSD, it could make for a good Xbox Series S.

    Not everybody has a 4K screen yet, and given that I'm pretty sure there will be another mid-gen refresh, getting the top-of-the-line model might not be necessary just yet. As long as I get a stable 1080p, everything else is gravy.

    Although, for development concerns, I'm pretty sure an eventual S would be based on a cheaper Navi instead.

    @Malek86

    I don't think an ssd will be in the low entry version.

    @JamboWayOh having an SSD as the standard would give devs a lot less headaches in terms of optimizing files for a mechanical hard drive.

    Maybe it could be like 250GB in the S, and 1TB in the X.

    Which is impossible for everyone that already owns one, so would make it the dumbest thing to do to new models - how would they message that some Xs are new and some are old, and the capabilities of each are wildly different?

    I can't see the current machines being an entry way to new games unless they're developing every game on all platforms, which means you'd also be able to use all current gen models. It's a messaging shit show.

    I wouldn't even hold it against you.

    I'm picturing trying to explain all this shit to my mother in law when she wants to buy her youngest one next Christmas. I'm actually going to have to have this conversation with a woman in her 50s
