Even Microsoft is laughing at the Xbox Series X name

Microsoft's Xbox consoles have been the topic of many a meme, not least because of their mind-melting taxonomy. We've had the One S, the One X, and then the Series S and the Series X – but of course the One X is more powerful than the Series S despite launching first. Confused? You're not alone. And now even Microsoft is embracing the chaos.

The company has joined in the meme game, openly mocking its own naming conventions – or lack thereof. The official Xbox Instagram has posted a video showing an Xbox Series X, an Xbox Series X box, an ex-boxed Xbox Series X next to its box, a series of ex-boxed Xbox Series X next to their boxes... we'll stop trying to explain, take a look at it below (and see our roundup of the best Xbox deals for the best prices on the current range).
