Microsoft website suggest next Xbox might be called the X8

An Xbox tutorial guide by Microsoft seems to suggest that the next Xbox might be called the X8 or Xbox Infinity.

The official Xbox website has tutorial pages that explain how to use various features of the Xbox 360. But what is interesting is that two pages refer to the X8. The Playing Games page has “Playing Games (includes X8)” and the Xbox Music page has ‘Listen to Music (includes X8).’ Which can be interpreted as meaning that the instructions apply to the X8 console as well as the Xbox 360.

Or... or.. you know... it could be...


Edit: What about this lol...

There's also a HTC WP8 phone called the 8X. I believe you can access some form of XBL from these as well as play music.

Good point!
But it doesn't seem to fit in with the content of the how-to guide.

How about Xbox Octo? Maybe not

GalacticEmpire1902d ago

If it has eight ARM processors then maybe :P

X8 sounds like a silent war jet that launches UFO's at targeted cities from outer space with needle-point precision.

That's what it will be akin to LOL


Got some people tailing me now disagreeing LOL

lol M$ must be loving all this free publicity. Aren't we supposed to be talking about the PS4?

maniacmayhem1902d ago

Free publicity is better than no publicity right? I'm sure $ony is getting just as much buzz with Feb 20th around the corner.

Actually, I like this name! It really makes sense because of rumored Windows8-like UI and it just sounds good!

Bigpappy1902d ago

Yes. It is a good name. Lets see it they actually use it.

ahronith1901d ago

XLR8...Thats what they should call it.

peowpeow1902d ago

And its the 8th gen, it works. I'm keen to see the W8 integration/UI, that's one side I expect them to excel in

I vote for Xbox infinity way better than X8 in my opinion.

ziggurcat1902d ago

well, the 8 is shaped like the infinity symbol, so if any of this is true (which we won't really know until it's officially announced), the logo will be "X8" but the actual title will be "Xbox Infinity."
