Last night during The Game Awards, Microsoft revealed the official name of the Xbox Scarlett, which is Xbox Series X. In addition to this, it also revealed some new details about the next-gen console, revealed what it looked like, and its controller. Unfortunately, Microsoft didn't divulge any of the console's most salient details, which led to everyone focusing on how it looks. And according to the Internet, it's ugly. Beyond roasting its bulky PC tower-esq design, the Internet has also thought up a few nicknames for the console.
The one being passed around the most right now is the "Xbox Sex." This is popular for obvious reasons. Meanwhile, in Japan the console has picked up the nickname "Shiri X," which literally translates to "Butt X." Again, this is popular for obvious reasons. Of course, these aren't the only nicknames, but they are the ones that are likely going to stick going forward alongside the official abbreviation of XSX.
Plus you get to abbreviate it to XSX and talk about it like you've got Excess X. Too much X! All this Xbox, it's choking me with its power! Send help, the Xbox is getting all over everything! There's too much of it! Call the frickin' cops, this Xbox is trying to kill me!— Jeff Gerstmann (@jeffgerstmann) December 13, 2019
I gotta give Microsoft credit, they picked another name I never in a million years would have guessed. Xbox Series X. But I kinda like it, does the internet shorten it to Xbox SeX?— Andy McNamara (@TheRealAndyMc) December 13, 2019

Henceforth, I'll be abbreviating Xbox Series X to Xbox SeX.— YongYea (@YongYea) December 13, 2019
