I've been posting in this thread a lot. I'm glad everyone's so chill about double-posting. >.>

So, the new consoles from Sony and Microsoft have been revealed now. The new 360 revision is physically attractive but not really necessary, the Xbox One and the PS4 are essentially the same major hardware with important differences in minor hardware, and all of the above are modest-looking black boxes that are much less stylized than previous generations. If I had to pick one because it would look good on my desk, though, it'd be the PS4. The Xbox One is too VCR, but the PS4 looks kind of like a small desktop computer. (It's also cheaper and properly supports used games properly, but nobody cares about that, or they would have bragged about it at E3 to spite Microsoft. What's that you say? They did?)

So I then just said "the original Xbox" every time I needed to refer to it, which was fortunately just twice more. A bit awkward in conversation (almost like "The Artist Formerly Known as Xbox").
... Oh, and there's one little detail that bothers me the most. Because the major name for a console (as in, The Xbox) is commonly (Ubiquitously?) used to refer to the newest iteration of said console, and the new Xbox is called the Xbox One, there is now no short-winded way to refer to the original Xbox, should anyone find it necessary. (Like me. Because I have One. Er, I mean, I have The Xbox. Wait-- GAH.)
