5 Reasons The Xbox 720 Won't Be Named Xbox 8 says "Don’t round up Xbox 720 to an even-numbered Xbox 8 just yet." Just because Microsoft now possesses two Xbox 8-related domains, doesn't mean a Windows 8-themed name is in the console's future.

G4TV lays out the 5 reasons Xbox 8 isn't going to be the name and suggests turning 8 it on its side for Xbox Infinity instead.

Lol, should have been "8 reasons".

nukeitall1566d ago

Yeah, but the 8 on it's side is a cool name. Xbox Infinite!

Bathyj1567d ago

Dont name it 720 either. Stupid, stupid name.

Unexpecta1567d ago

Not as stupid as Wii or Wii U to be honest.

Dojan1231566d ago

The Wii U name will hurt sales. Parents are going to think they already bought thier kid a Wii. Or it is an expensive add on. It would work if they dropped the Wii part.

Snookies121567d ago

Well 360 didn't really make all that much sense either... Unless there's a reason behind it I don't realize.

Hufandpuf1567d ago

1. It could mean it covered all aspects of gaming (casual to hardcore)
2. It could have meant that the Xbox could stand up and lay flat unlike the original Xbox.

Bathyj1567d ago

No, all it meant was MS didnt want to call it XB 2 when there was a PS3 coming out.

Kind of childish in my opinion.

jvanik1567d ago

It was 360 because it was a "revolution."

Snookies121567d ago

Lol, all 3 of those are interesting thoughts on it actually that I hadn't thought of.

nukeitall1566d ago (Edited 1566d ago )

360 means all around you! Which frankly it kind of is now.


How is it childish? It's called smart marketing as opposed to "stupid" marketing, but clearly you missed that part.

It should be called XBOX Metro.

PoSTedUP1567d ago (Edited 1567d ago )

wow i thought somewhere in there it should've said "because it's only the third console"...

Moby-Royale1567d ago

You would think that, huh?


SwiderMan1566d ago

Moby-Royale, this was really intended for PoSTedUP. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

PoSTedUP1566d ago

i was being a wise ass because most of what was said was way over my head, i had no idea of any of that stuff haha.

M_Prime1567d ago

it would totally settle the question, who has more power, NISSAN or MICROSOFT.. or every Infiniti would have a xbox in it :-D

iNFAMOUZ11567d ago

infiniti is a way of saying it with an i instead of a y, it also rolls outta the tongue better, seriously naming it infiniti will be the smartest move microsoft will ever make naming a console

M_Prime1567d ago

really, is it nessasary to speculate names? it gets changed at the last minute anyways. remember Project NATAL? Project Dolphin? the Virtual boy?
