    A gaming platform or you can say a separate device or console meant for playing games.

    As above it's a gaming console now on it's third generation with the Xbox One.

    In the phone context it is also the name for a few apps, the name was chosen because games consoles tend to be used by young people (Often bought by older people and given as gifts to their children) and because of this the name Xbox is considered "Cool" so we have on our phones Xbox Games, Xbox Music.

    So although a game that can be played on your phone (Or tablet, PC etc) that is titled an Xbox game, its not the same as a real Xbox game, but often the scores can be seen on other devices and add to your Xbox score.

    In the case of the Xbox One (And to a lesser extent it's predecessor the Xbox 360) it is much more than a games console, it is almost a complete entertainment system, for example I can watch TV, play music, watch video's and connect to my OneDrive through the Xbox as well as play the odd game and with the WP and Windows app Smartglass I can control all of this from any device, as well as talking directly to the Xbox as well.
