Xbox Infinity? Xbox Fusion? What The Next Xbox's Name Will Say About Microsoft's Next Console

We knew from the beginning that Playstation 4 was almost definitely going to be called Playstation 4, because if a naming convention is not broke, don’t fix it. Microsoft, however, is a bit more of a wildcard. Rumors have been circulating the internet about what it plans on calling its next Xbox, due for unveiling on May 21. In some ways, it’s a semantic debate, but each of the names we have heard conveys a slightly different vision of what this console will be, and which one Microsoft goes with will tell us a lot about what it’s hoping to accomplish. Here are some of the top names...

I think it'll be just called 'Xbox' in an attempt to create a simplified Apple-esque image. I'm going to keep calling it Xbox 3 until the official word though.

I dunno. I think putting a name to it gives the console more meaning and will be beneficial to marketing and advertising it. But your right, they are trying to fuse all their products and services together under the same moniker/name scheme, so it could go either way, as long as they make it official come May 21st.

"Xbox Infinite with Infinite Possibilities"

Then explain why XboxFusion.com redirects to official Xbox website :D

Xbox Fusion was also the rumored name of the Xbox 360, it could be a service, maybe like an ultimate XBL subscription? Or it could be the name of the next Xbox.

If it's fusion, that means it'll be fused to your pockets!
If it's infinity, that means you'll be infinitely broke.

They just need to shut the fuck up and call it xbox 720.

Gimmemorebubblez1152d ago

So you are saying MS must "shut up" and then call it the Xbox 720....but surely if they shut up they wont be able to say what its called????

PS Killer was already taken?

MysticStrummer1151d ago

Not taken, but it would most likely end up making MS look very foolish indeed, and would haunt them like "Halo killer" haunts Sony even though that didn't come from Sony in the first place.

I think they need a name that "pops", and I personally don't really care what it's called, I wouldn't really like it to be called the 720, but anything else I'd be totally fine with.

Fusion pops and makes sense if they want to fuse all kinds of things together, Infinity, Infinite,and Xbox are all fine with me.
