MIND、FACE、P2P……有冇兴趣睇睇Xbox以前o的名

大家觉得“Xbox”点?个名好听吗?原来Xbox的名字是兜个圈才决定得到,中间经历了好些可能去到舖头都唔敢开声讲出口话要买的名字。当初一手带大Xbox的Seamus Blackley曾就此向Edge吐苦水,近日Edge把有关报导在网上首次公开。

Xbox原来是开发过程的其中一个代号的简称,当初代号包括「令微软高层放心」的WEP(Windows Entertainment Project;Windows娱乐计划)、Midway(引申为PC与游戏主机的「中途」或取自美日间的中途岛海战)以及DirectX Box,而这个名字「极早期已在电邮中简写成xbox」。不过由于xbox一名有法律问题,所以又开始构想了各种「车名」和众多食字缩写,如MIND(Microsoft Interactive Network Device;微软互动网络装置)、FACE(Full Action Center;全动作中心)、P2P(Powered 2 Play;有动力去玩)等等,另外,TSO(Three, Six, Zero;三、六、零)、LEX(Live Entertainment Experience;即时娱乐体验)又有冇觉得好熟口面?最后,「改名班人」又突然想将Xbox改名做11-X或Eleven-X,Blackley及其团队成功力补旧名,但结果又要决定到底Xbox四个字母点写好(如X-Box、xBox、XboX等等)。

以下是Xbox名称侯选名单,Blackley点评为「垃圾」,但其实有部分都唔係咁差呀。
