Also today, I went to GameStop. Me: "How do you guys feel about the Xbox One?" Store clerk: "We don't sell those anymore."—

But I have to admit, when it comes to naming, I’m with that clerk. Shouldn’t “one” be the first in line? Isn’t that what we could reasonably call the original Xbox?
I get the all-in-one entertainment center symbolism and such, having paid at least a little attention to the announcement. But still, you know some parent somewhere is going to disappoint their child by coming home with an original Xbox they got off Craig’s List for “really cheap.”
Sony will never has this problem with the PlayStation 4.
