Boston (TheNextXbox) – Microsoft has a major decision on their hands with the successor to the Xbox 360. What they need to do is to come up with a name for the next-generation Xbox.

apparently it will be called Xbox8 to be in-line with microsoft's os windows8. if it is then that pretty damn lame

wr4ITH661294d ago (Edited 1294d ago )

well it make sense Xbox8 and its not because of the phone !!!

360 is a full circle so is the 8 its a never ending number ! For Chinese the number 8 is considered lucky just like the number 7 is
considered lucky in the West....

so will xbox use the 8 or will they come up with a brand new name for it...and do away with xbox

you could see microsoft on it, but another brand new name along side of it..

example
Microsoft Triton
Microsoft Infinity
Microsoft HEC "Home Entertainment Center"
Microsoft Eclips

you just do not know, me i would love to see them make it under and brand new name

They will never go with that because consumers will think itd worse than the 360 due to it being a lower number. thats why they didnt go with xbox 2, because it sounded inferior to ps3. I guess infinity is more likely.

I disagree. Xbox 8 falls in line with the current Windows 8 stuff which is what Microsoft wants to put across. I understand Xbox 2 to the PS3 thing but I think the Xbox is past that now in terms of brand recognition. Everyone knows what the Xbox brand is. It is making them see Xbox is Microsoft and realising how all Microsoft products connect together now which is what 8 does (with Windows 8.....).

Lvl_up_gamer1293d ago

How can you say "apparently" as if you know for certain and then say "if so" as if you are unsure..... :/

Do you know or not?

Blackdeath_6631293d ago

definition of apparently: As far as one knows or can see.
apparently does not mean it is certain i am just saying that with the information available so far about the next xbox it is rumoured that it will have a name change and that it would likely be called xbox 8.
also no i don't know, if anyone knew then we would be here discussing the next xbox name now would we?

iamnsuperman1293d ago

I agree it will be 8 and not 720. 720 is just double 360 and that is why it has stuck. 8 falls in line with the Microsoft line and like wr4ITH66 said the number 8 has multiple meanings and significance. I disagree with the other stuff he says

NukaCola1293d ago

Well they named it the 360 because Xbox 2 would look inferior PS3. I think it will either have a 4 or "four,for,fore" or since it's rumored PS4 will take a new name, maybe INFINITY or Xbox∞ because of Win 8.

CraigandDayDay1293d ago

Xbox Infinity sounds pretty damn cool, I admit. I hope the PS4 is called just that, PS4. Just because in Japan 4 is an unlucky number, doesn't mean they won't name it that.

I actually don't care too much what they NAME these new consoles. I want to see the games and services!!!!

FarCryLover1821293d ago

What happens when the inevitable Windows 9 comes in a few years?

Wikkid6661293d ago

It will be 8, but not really. It's going to be called Infinity (an 8 on its side). Infinity because it's going to be the last full blown console before 100% cloud based gaming.

spicelicka1293d ago

That would be dumb if they name it xbox8? Windows 9 will probably come out in a few years so it won't be in line with windows 8 for long. And it won't make any sense, people will think ok where are xbox 3,4,5,6,7?

It'll just look like a random number attached.
