WHAT'S THE MEANING?
Microsoft's gaming consoles are called Xbox, as a shortened term for DirectXbox, based on the names of the console's four developers: Otto Berkes, Kevin Bachus, Seamus Blackley, Ted Hase, all members of Microsoft's DirectX team.
DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that the first Xbox was made from the pieces of a few disassembled Dell laptops? It was reported that Microsoft wanted to create a competitive, affordable, and powerful gaming console that can compete with Sony's upcoming PlayStation 2, so a team of engineers from their DirectX department got together to hatch plans for the gaming equipment they wanted to call the DirectXbox. The team disassembled a few Dell laptops and used the hardware for making the prototype console, which passed the engineering team and went into development, though the name was shortened to Xbox.
Another interesting fact is that the high-ranking officials and the marketing team of Microsoft did not like the name of the Xbox and presented many alternatives, including the Microsoft Action Experience (MAX), Microsoft Action Reality Center (MARC), and Microsoft Play and Action Center (M-PAC). But after a survey of potential clients, it turned out Xbox was the preferred name for the console and it became its official name.
