Rejected Xbox Names
« on: February 24, 2018, 06:51:48 PM »
I ran into an interesting article on IGN and thought I would post it here:

Rejected names for the original Xbox on IGN

The one that makes sense... Directx Box.  This makes sense due to Directx software in windows used for gaming and other stuff.   I guess that's how they derived the name Xbox.

Thoughts!  Post it up!

works fine now.

Those are some crappy names..

They should have hired a bunch of stoners to sit around a circle and toss out names. The only things on the deny list that was remotely good were rip-offs, OM - Odyssey of the Mind (Magnavox Odyssey), MEGA - Neo Geo had mega written all over it!
