First, anything trying to be "extreeeeeme!!!" is lame. X-Games are lame. X-Play is kind of cool though, because it's funny and Morgan Webb is pretty hot. And oh yeah, they usually get their game reviews right.

Second, Microsoft got kind of lucky with the XBox loosely translating to "the extreeeeme!!! console" the way you suggest. The "X" moniker was an evolution of their long established DirectX APIs, where the X was essentially just a variable; i.e. back then DirectSound, Direct3D, DirectDraw, etc. were all essentially separate APIs bundled together as DirectX. DirectX was a major brand they were marketing to game developers back then, much like .NET is today. I'm sure some smart marketing guy saw the ability to use the "X" as a bullet point for both developers (who already knew DirectX very well) and gamers (who like the X-Games, I suppose...) But if DirectX had been named something else way back when, one has to wonder if the XBox name would exist today. What if Microsft had stayed with the WinG API...we might be playing the GBox right now!

I don't think we will ever truely understand their fascination with mangling phonex
They dont have any sounds that sounds like things in English. Their writing revolves around syllables, not individual "letters". And how do they butcher it? Or mangle "phonex" as you put it. I listen to J-rock and I like it, I dont like everything I hear, but I dont hear any butchering of the English language either.
