Xbox Series X, coming November 10, 2020.
Xbox Series X - games stay 'resumed' even when the console is off.

Josef Fares, the man behind A Way Out and the upcoming It Takes Two is confused by Microsoft's naming scheme for the next-gen consoles Xbox Series X and Series S. Fares suggested that Microsoft Box would be a much better name.

In his latest interview, the Director of co-op title A Way Out has voiced his discontent with the confusing naming of Microsoft's next-generation consoles Xbox Series X and Series S. Of course, Fares is not the first person to dislike how Microsoft are handling the naming scheme and many would agree that he has a fair point in his rant.

Speaking to IGN, first and foremost, Fares says that he doesn't particulate care about consoles, though he is happy with the power of both Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5. However, his talk about the consoles quickly turned into another direction.

"That’s a f**king confusing name. What the f**k’s going on with Microsoft? They’re losing it, man. What the f**k is going on? Like Series S, X, Mex, Next. I mean, who knows this? Come on. Madness. Call it the Microsoft Box and that’s it. I don’t know. It’s a total f**king mess. Trust me, even them, they’re confused in their offices. What is this X, S… I don’t know, what the f**k."

Yeah, that's a lot of f words and a lot of questions asked by Fares. To be fair, the naming scheme is not really that bad as Fares is trying to present it but it certainly would not hurt if Microsoft simply went with Xbox Two, instead of Xbox Series X.

Anyway, if you're interested to read the rest of the interview where Fares talks about his games and plans for the future, you can find it on IGN.
