    You do know you can order directly off microsoft, which i did.

    So what store would i return it to, but regardless even some stores tell you its covered by what you call manufacturer warranty and to deal direct.

    Changes nothing, microsoft customer support is shit and they caused more damage, destroyed my box and refused to deal with the damage they caused.

    What the fuck, guys. "Series X" at least makes it distinct. Did they forget they already fucking took the name "Xbox"? Y'know, the chunky, black staple of early-2000s gaming (at least where I live) that Halo was born on?

    I can't wait for the first revision model to be the Xbox Series X+1 and all the senseless algebra jokes that come with it.

    remember Sheldon Cooper was mystified as to why they'd name the xbox one the xbox one like the only way to distinguish the first system was to say the original xbox. I think he said the one in its title signified how many seconds it took them to come up with a name.

    People can't stop fapping to Sony and Nintendo despite both companies' anti-consumer practices and litigious natures, but Microsoft bad for some reason.

    Bill hasn't been running Microsoft for well over ten years now; you knew that, right?

    He stepped down and Ballmer had been running it thereafter.
    It would be a lot more entertaining, if the Sheldon character wasn't so completely unlikeable.
    Probably how people got accustomed to blaming the operating system when their own ineptitude compromised their identity, assets and data.

    Like the stereotypical baby boomer that can't even turn on a laptop without getting six viruses and wiring half their money to an assumed Nigerian Prince.
    This one basically nails it. I'm sure it'll be a fine system for at least a couple of years for sure. But this naming schema sucks. At least we know it'll be more capably backwards compatible than the ps5.

    When you have to make a press statement on the naming of your new console, you have to know you fucked up... right?

    Say whatever you want about Sony being anti-consumer but at least they know how to name a fucking console.

    Cmon Pip giv us a good reason why it's better - the wii u name is pretty good sounds powerful enough and actually ment something we and you - as soon as xbox said xbox one straight away everyone thought it was crap and nobody really knows what the next xbox is gonna be really called or how it's gonna say on the box thts how crap it is :lol:
