Microsoft buys ‘Xbone.com’ domain, Major Nelson deems it disrespectful

Thursday, 12 September 2013 10:54 GMT By Dave Cook

Microsoft has bought the web domain ‘Xbone.com’, after the popular nickname for Xbox One was been deemed disrespectful by Major Nelson.

Fusible reports that the domain’s WHOIS records show that Microsoft has indeed acquired the Xbone.com domain.

Last week, Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb took to NeoGAF to discuss the moniker, and added, “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.”

What do you think of the above?

    Seems to be more of an internet thing. I’ve never actually meet anyone in real life, in everyday conversation, who has referred to it as the “XBone”. I think it sounds stupid and not really all that clever, but that’s just me.

    Yes, it’s disrespectful I suppose. But expecting the internet to honour respect is madness. This goes double for the gaming culture portion of the internet.

    I can empathise with his viewpoint – but then, sure, he’s already invested years and effort into the product and working with others that have done the same. Few others will be coming from that perspective though.

    I’d also suggest Larry has a chat with his friend Aaron on the topic of ‘respect’.

    “And who made this man a major, might I ask? Did I sleep through some sort of an armed forces swearing in ceremony or something? Major? He’s a f****** director of programming and let him be happy with that. If his musings and announcements are any mark of his intellect, he’s lucky to be working at all.

    If you name your console the Xbox One and you expect people not to call it the Xbone, then you’re the retarded one.

    No not in this thread, but Ive seen it before. Sorry to bother you, but I was just wondering. Thank you for replying lol.

    @Twilight213 its about decency and respect. Swearing too much purely for trolling is immature. It doesnt make you a hotshot especially not on the internet. Do it with moderation and dont overdo it.

    @123: My name’s not Richard. :D

    Anyway, to make my comment applicable to the actual news article, Major Nelson or whoever came up with the name XBox One should’ve expected XBone. People like to shorten names, it’s why Square-Enix gets called Squeenix even by big fans of the company, and Microsoft pretty much set up the name perfectly for that kind of shortening.

    @111 I’m sorry but we are way beyond the pseudo-modding matter, when you read cocksucker and faggot in regular instances in the previous comments, we can consider moderation is needed (or maybe I’m wrong and this website is out of the realm of good manners). Free speech is good but not when it’s used vulgarly in order to start flame wars, what’s the point of allowing this behaviour ?

    Free speech means the government can’t censor what you say. Private sites, on the other hand, can censor whatever they want. Dave, you are being way more forgiving than you need to be. Obvious trolls are obvious.

    Anyways…

    I refer to the Xbox One as an Xbone now too, despite the fact that it’s my console of choice. At first the term irritated me too as it’s a bit childish, but then I decided that I would reclaim the word, much in the way that some folks do with ‘nigger’ and ‘queer’, and now I rejoice in the usage of it.

    It’s always going to be used now it’s out there, so I see no reason to not try and embrace it. At least that way, it would annoy me slightly less. Maybe slightly illogical, but if you can’t beat ‘em then join ‘em!

  107. salarta

    @165: That’s a pretty good approach, I think. Besides, there’s absolutely nothing about the term XBone that’s in itself bad or disrespectful. It sounds disrespectful because it’s silly and sounds a lot like “boner,” which people are starting to remember (thanks to that one old Batman comic) used to mean the same thing as screwing up. But a good marketing campaign could spin that one around, maybe use it to suggest mature content or something along those lines. It just takes the right spin and enough people adopting it.

    @170: Being serious about the twilight situation for a moment, I hesitate on just rushing to such a conclusion if it’s based purely on the person exhibiting undesired behavior. I’ve dealt with cases on other sites where users that hated me or things I said (mostly on GameFAQs, when I posted there more often) would claim I was some other absolutely horrendous user sockpuppeting about, and other users were also claimed to be me on a new account just for liking the same characters.

    Now if it’s based on IP addresses or the same two people saying almost the exact same things, then I can see the assumption being reasonable. But in this case, it could just be two different people both displaying bad behavior.

    I understand that he’s been through some bad shit in the press, naming and shaming and all, but you gotta have a backbone, and you gotta stand up for what you do, instead of bowing to any anonymous internet troll who may or may not write nasty (and undoubtedly false) things about you somewhere that absolutely no one gives a fuck about.

    I think the real questions are, will he get bored and go away, how long will he be put up with before he actually IS banned if he doesn’t, and how much worse could the situation be the longer it’s not dealt with?

  167. Eregol

    @159 (Numbering has gone squiffy now) DSB: Yes, he could, and there’d be the majority who would pay him no mind, but a website depends on it’s traffic, and for every 100 people that would ignore a shitty blog, there’s one that may read it. People can be influenced, and if they spread it then it’s influence can be far reaching.

    @163 Yeah, it must’ve been really unpleasant. But that stuff is history, and as long as you can vouch for what you do, all those insults should just be water off your back. Clearly everybody appreciates your work, and I don’t think anyone honestly believes you’re a shill.

    Whatever you do, just don’t feed the trolls. It’s really a mogwai/gremlin disposition. It’s better to keep ‘em begging than to have a gremlin dancing on your face.

    @167 Either way, if an anonymous internet troll talking garbage is enough to keep you from maintaining your site, you’re really not helping anyone.

    A few bad words on Google may be a bummer, but if you look up Dave Cook you’ll find a lot more proper articles that I think carry a lot more weight. He doesn’t have the worst wikipedia stub in the world.

    “No personal insults.”

    Then why isn’t Da Man banned? Every single pos he makes is “personal insults”.

    Just to give a recent example: http://www.vg247.com/forum/topic.php?id=41998&page=1

    Purely for discussing something that interested them.

    Edit: So I’ve just been politely informed that Da Man can no longer post on the site. Hahahaha. I’ve been given the freedom and go ahead to delete any abusive post he makes on the forums.

    It seems to me that it would be much easier just to delete his entire account, but at least some justice is being administered on the site. Makes me feel far more comfortable about posting.

    No problem! Insults don’t personally bother me. They roll off my back like water on a duck’s back (I have brothers and the youngest is a hateful little shit). But I won’t tolerate it being dished out to others and having to remove 4 pages worth of “internetz rage” drivel from the site was just uncalled for. My ban finger has been sated for now though. :D

    Like I said, I am just sorry I didn’t see this earlier or it would have been dealt with in a more quick manner.

    Anything abusive – as in excessive – will not be tolerated. Now, if someone calls you a wanker a few times just deal with it – but there is a line. Adults know “the line” but childish trolls do not and will be dealt with accordingly.

    Wow…I missed all the hoopla, guess it must have been pretty bad for some many commented to get deleted. Nothing wrong with strong opinions, but people who insult another user directly need to get a life.

    Im American, I visit this site every single day multiple times, I think the staff is great, the site is better than the other sites ot there in my honest opinion, and I have NEVER one single time witnessed anyone of the VG247 staff ever say anything remotely discriminating towards Americans, Hell sometimes I don’t like the attitude, or agee with the actions of the general populace in America, but that doesnt make me anti-American. Assulting someone or a group of people for sexual prefference is just out of line. I don’t have to agree with a persons lifestyle, thats their choice and right to live the way they see fit. If this guy that got banned recieved it for anti homosexual comments and hate, then power to the site. You could be Superman, not just some common soldier, make horrible remarks and harbour hatred and guess what….YOUR NO LONGER SUPERMAN, JUST A SUPER JERK.

    I say this to fellow Americans, think about something before you put your foot in your mouth, mabey some people hate us for where we come from thats a given, but even some Americans dislike Americans, in the end our place of birth and where we are raised is our lineage, and the title we are given. Humanity is humanity the world over no matter where you come from. The world would be a better place if we all had a lot more love in our hearts. Its ignorance that causes divison and strife, and next time you feel wronged, take a long look in the mirror and chances could be that the grief you recieve from others might be a reflection of the manners you show to others, and in general its seldom to do with where you come from.

    Heros don’t scorn, face the odds for personal gain, or hurt those they protect no matter their beliefs. Heros rise above the call in selflessness, thats what defines a true hero. Just because A guy gets wounded fighting, or is a soldier, it doesnt make him a hero.

    Lol Michael lol.

    As far as The Xbox One, and Nelson not liking Xbone, I think they should have given the console a better name anyway.

    I refer to it as X1.

    #199 1 year ago
  200. Ireland Michael

    @199 Personally I think Xbones is a far more interesting name than what we have now, if for no other reason than the fact that the current name has made me have to refer to the older machine as “the original Xbox”. Ugh.

    You should work in the industry.

    Call it something like the Gaping Maw of Mutilation. I’d buy that.

    And people would really expect draconian DRM on a box like that. It’s supposed to be painful.

    You sir, are a genius!

    And whenever you start it up, the splash screen will be Steve Ballmer jump-scaring you, like just hopping into the frame and going “AAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!”.

    He does realize that it’s going to be universally used as the informal name for the system, and that he himself will be using it in a blog update within 2 years, right? OK.

    I mean, what the hell does Microsoft’s marketing wizards think we’re going to call it? The “Xbox 1?” There already was an Xbox 1.

    How does a company as rich as Microsoft staff itself so deeply with tone-deaf idiots?

    …the X1, one, X-one, look at that it really was difficult to come up with names that didn’t spawn from the juvenile rage which the internet is partly comprised of.

    And no one calls the original Xbox the Xbox 1, they never have and now they never will. Everyone just called it the Xbox because unlike the Playstation it didn’t go: Original, 2, 3. It went Original, 360. So maybe you should go back to the hole you crawled out of hmm?
