Chris has stated that if his video game Christian Weston Chandler's Adult Chronicles ever gets made, he wants it to become a multi-console title, but NEVER ON HEXBox.
Chris tried to sell the Xbox games Call of Duty 2: Big Red One, The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, Driv3r and Celebrity Deathmatch on eBay, which makes it possible that Chris owned an Xbox, though he has been known to buy games at thrift stores and sell them for a profit.
In the 2 January 2009 IRC chat, Chris expands upon his HEXBox hatred:
While making sweet love to his one and only love, Chris failed to tell what he really feels about the HEXBox:
- "I love PlayStation! I love PlayStation! Kill the Xbox! New reason why they call it the motherfucking 360, you look at it makes you turn around—makes you do a 360° and walk away. Very appropriately called is a damn 120°, 130° whatever, whatever the half of 360° is. Damn damn damn damn damn! damn damn damn damn damn! [...] I love PlayStation. Sony reigns, Sony will reign in the console wars. No matter who argues. Fuck the 350–360 fanatics. Fuck them all to hell. Shot to hell. Damn them all. What the fuck. They're all motherfucking idiots. What the fuck. Damn damn damn damn."
He was asked about this in his Mailbag, and he answered pretty much the same as all of the other responses.
Actually, Xbox Live has two kinds of accounts. "Free" accounts (formerly "Silver") can access a large part of of Xbox Live features, such as friend lists, messaging, achievements and the content marketplace. "Gold" accounts, currently priced around $60/year, can play multiplayer games, use certain premium features such as Netflix (in US), get weekly discounts and get early access to certain downloadable games and demos (free accounts eventually get access to this content as well).
Considering $60 is around the price of a single game, and considering Chris's monthly allowance and his habit of purchasing video game-related things on a whim while accruing thousands of dollars of debt, the price would hardly be a problem for him. It is safe to say Chris's opposition to Xbox Live stems purely from his console-war mindset and nothing else.
While PlayStation Network still lets its users play multiplayer games for free, a premium version called PlayStation Plus was introduced in June 2010. In order to prove how strongly he believes the evilness of Hex Box Live Gold, Chris was spotted in April 2011 using the Plus services.
In the comics
The HEXBox 360 is featured during the elevator gag portion of Sonichu #8. Sonichu and Rosechu are greeted by a depiction of an axe cutting through the console while traveling past the 70th floor of the 4-cent_garbage.com building. The 71st floor displays a PlayStation Trophy award for "killing that HEX-BOX."
In Sonichu #10, Jason Kendrick Howell is shown surveying his evil realm using an Xbox 360 and the controller and a pirated copy of LittleBigPlanet. Later, Chris portrays Alec Benson Leary as the owner of an Xbox 360, though as an actual computer hard drive. Chris, as Collosal Chan, enters the Xbox, deletes everything about the Asperpedia, then destroys the Xbox.
Chris also has no idea what a real Xbox 360 is supposed to look like. Most notably, he thinks the console is tinier than a Wii and he also places the power button on the top end of the console rather than the bottom end (incidentally, Wii also has power button on top and eject button on bottom, exactly the opposite of Xbox 360). He also appears to think that it has four unprotected USB sockets directly under the disc tray (like those in the PS3), as his portrayal of Alec's console shows; a real 360 console has two memory card slots at that location, and the USB sockets are located next to the power button, under a door. That is, unless you have one of the new model 360s, which doesn't have those memory card slots but does have two USB slots behind a door near the power button.
Microsoft itself is not addressed in the comics either directly or via pseudonym.
Change of heart?
Nope, he still hates it
On the weekend of 7 September 2013, Chris was banned from the Ruckersville Wal-Mart after he vandalized an Xbox One kiosk with a felt-tip marker to read "HEXbox One". Not only does this backpedal on his so-called "change of heart" on the console, but also it adds to his ever growing list of lies as well.
