Will Microsoft call its next generation console the Xbox Fusion? Domain names point to yes

If Microsoft has learned anything from its previous mistakes with launching a product without the matching domains -- then it's quite possible that the company's next generation console will be called the "Xbox Fusion". Microsoft owns the name in a variety of different extensions and it has for years. Speculation about the name being called "Xbox Fusion" isn't anything new. But what separates "Xbox Fusion" and only a few other names from the rest of the list, is that not only does Microsoft own the dot-com, it owns a slew of other domains like XboxFusion.info, XboxFusion.biz, XboxFusion.de, XboxFusion.co.uk - the list goes on and on. (Xbox One)

The amounts of laughs and dbz meme's getting thrown around would be insane, you could very well say it will be over 9000;)

It would be gif heaven.

Fusion likely refers to AMD's Fusion System Architecture.
CEOSteveBallmer  +   641d ago
No I think the reason its called fusion is because of a gaming console fusing with a cable entertainment box.
DeadlyFire  +   641d ago
Xbox Live Fusion. PC and console gaming together.

Windows 8 on next Xbox definitely a yes. I am thinking ARM edition, but you never know with Microsoft. Possibly a reference to PC and Xbox co-existing with more PC titles from Xbox developers maybe?
dcbronco  +   641d ago
Fire, you might be onto something. It's also possible it could refer to having two APUs with different CPUs working together. MS has been working on making different types of systems work together. This may be a combination of an ARM, Power and/or x86 architecture APUs working seamlessly together.

Another possibility is that it will be a sort of dual machine where it can play console and PC games. That would really be the move. There are a lot of PC RTS' I would like to get.

Xbox Fusion might just be the name of a software or feature. I've always felt that the popularly rumored "Super Xbox" sounds about right.
Bigpappy  +   641d ago
I agree with your first statement

They should call it Xe-Boxo 驚くべき精神 Zwei.

Would guarantee ownership of the japanese market lol.
Braid  +   641d ago
Bad idea.

Remember how Super Nintendo was called SNES? In that regard Super Xbox would be called "SXBOX", which might be confused with something... well, very different than what it actually is.

Other options: SUXBOX, SUPXBOX... as you can see both are equally terrible.

Xbox fusion or Xbox Infinite sounds right to me.
LOL_WUT  +   641d ago
I don't know but I like fusion better ;)
Evil_Ryu  +   641d ago
it should be called Y-box because Y comes after x

Sounds like something I would shave my face with.

Gillete fusion, with all new ultra-thin tri-blade technology allows closer shaves...
BitbyDeath  +   641d ago
Sounds better than 720 and infinite
Hicken  +   641d ago
No.... no, it doesn't. I'd prefer either of those, though Infinite doesn't exactly leave room for a successor.
helghast102  +   641d ago
and 720 is a horrible name for marketing, seeing how everyone associates the number with a resolution that shouldn't even exist on the nextgen consoles
0pie  +   641d ago
sometime company buy domain just to mislead people... its a common practice but ... one way or another i really dont like the name.
punisher99  +   641d ago
Like I said before. I really dont care what they call it. Just dont actually name it 720. Which is a stupid name in my opinion.
GreenRanger  +   641d ago
Fusion = Kinect will be built-in.
MasterCornholio  +   641d ago
Kinect will probably come with the next XBOX since 360 owners are demanding it on the system. But i honestly dont believe it will be incorporated inside the console because that would make placement of the device a lot more difficult. Unless of course the console itself is small which i doubt.

The device that i believe will have Kinect incorporated inside will probably be that cd driveless 360 that everyone was talking about a short while ago.

So for now until MS finally reveal the specs, settles the rumours of what it will and what it wont do - and of course, confirms the name;

Welcome to the xbox CONfusion lol
FrigidDARKNESS  +   641d ago
Back three yesrs ago the name xnox fusion name surfaced. Fusion was the name of MS next gen technology.
SDF Repellent  +   641d ago
A website named "fusibe.com" is proclaiming the next xbox will be called Fusion? LOL
HalfNerdHalfAmazing  +   641d ago
Xbox fusion sound more stupid than Wii U
PigPen  +   641d ago
Wii U sound no less than playstation four. Xbox Fusion will be a name that many will grow on. I'm find with that name because I'm more Interested in what can it do.
Chango  +   641d ago
