JB Hi-Fi has the most amazing staff reviews of video games and, despite the fact its young staff members freak this old man out with their fancy tattoos and strange piercings, I've always had a good experience in-store. I guess what I'm saying is that JB Hi-Fi is hip to the internets, they're down with the kids and they understand what's going down in the street. So much so that in JB Hi-Fi's internal systems the Xbox One is actually being referred to as the 'XBone'.
Yep, the unofficial nickname of Microsoft's next generation console is now so widespread that the Australian retail giant has actually put 'Xbone' as the name of the console in its inventory system. A couple of staff members in separate stores nervously confirmed that, yes, the Xbox One is called 'Xbone' in the system. One claimed said that JB Hi-Fi was in on the joke, but another claimed it was a harmless abbreviation and not linked to the fact Xbox One is being referred to as 'Xbone' across the web.
I say it can't be a coincidence.
UPDATE: An anonymous JB Hi-Fi staff member has sent a pic of JB's inventory system, complete with XBONE!
