Series X Is A Subtitle And Nothing Matters Anymore
Reactions were mixed when Microsoft revealed the proper name of their next generation of Xbox consoles. While some considered Xbox Series X to be an unruly mouthful, others saw all those X’s as fertile ground for endless dirty jokes. Apparently, the curious font choices made when revealing the name actually meant something. Series X is more like a subtitle, it’s actually just Xbox going forward.
According to a Microsoft Rep, “The name we’re carrying forward to the next generation is simply Xbox.” Much like the One S and the One X of this generation, Series X is merely a moniker for what is likely the beefier version of the console. It seems a similar naming system will be applied to the cheaper variants.
So what does this mean going forward? At this point, very little. Casual conversation can refer to the upcoming Microsoft behemoth as the Xbox, or the Series X, or the XXX, or whatever you prefer. Moms doing their gift shopping can ask a Gamestop employee for the new Xbox, and it will be technically correct, a semantic victory sure to be ignored by almost everyone on Earth. The XXXbox, aka Just Xbox, is coming sometime during the 2020 holiday season.
