Look, I’m not suggesting that many people are going to buy more than one Xbox One X console. But if you did… how would you say that?

The question of how to pluralize “Xbox One X” came up today in Kotaku’s work Slack. I asked Microsoft PR for their official stance, though I haven’t yet heard back. (Update: Microsoft’s response below.) I decided I would put it to you, fair readers, to help us determine the best way forward.


I’m open to hearing additional ideas in the comments. Also, we will retroactively apply our findings here to the Xbox One S, which upon reflection raises a similar question.

Update 11/8/2017: After one day and 5,386 votes, the top vote-getter was “Xbox One Xs.” It was followed by “Xbox One Xes” and then “Xbox One X Consoles.” According to a Microsoft representative, their preferred term is also “Xbox One X Consoles.” I still like Xbox One X-2, myself.
