I think it's a mistake to call it anything other than Project Scorpio. They have worked very hard to get the message across so far and the name sounds good.

Goldby368d ago

it aint gonna stay because it would sell off of that name.

Personally, I think "Xbox Scorpio" is a very cool name, it sounds edgy, it already has tons of recognition, and it would be unexpected because usually the actual name from a codename like *Project Scorpio is completely different. That said, I think its unlikely but Im open to other long as its not dumb like "Xbox Zero".

@ gtr there isn't 11 exclusives on the PS4 I want to play

XanderZane367d ago

1. Horizon: Zero Dawn
2. Days Gone
3. Spiderman
4. Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom
5. Hot Shot Golf
6. Persona 5
7. Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice
8. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
9. Nier Automata
10. Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX
11. The Last of Us 2
12. Shenmue 3

@XanderZane -

Shenmue 3 is not owned by Sony and can be bought and played on PC, so not technically exclusive. Had it been owned by Sony and still get exclusive earnings for being sold on PC then I would give you that game. But it is not.

Other games for the most part really aren't much of a draw outside of Sony loyalists.

PlayStation is Big Boss Xbox is Huey!
Imagine Xbox Huey similarly to Wii and it sells like crazy..

Army_of_Darkness367d ago

they named the engine scorpio and that will keep the same name but the console will fall in line with other xbox one name formats. branding 101.

Inzo367d ago

Branding 101, dont name a product after something that is synonymous with a disastrous launch.

That's why I love X4K. Simple and next gen they can move to whatever they want.

Strange_Evil367d ago (Edited 367d ago )

I remember when Kinect was code named Project Natal and everyone hated the name Kinect. Funny how that caught on (well at least till they killed it off that is). Regardless of marketing, Xbox Scorio doesn't align with their branding (although Xbox360 -> Xbox One makes no sense as well)

SideNote367d ago

I agree, Scorpio is a great name. I think Microsoft just need to ditch the numbers, it's confusing. Maybe after Scorpio will come the Behemoth.

headblackman367d ago

@ Death

i agree with you 100% scorpio should be the name. ms said that this is the we heard you console, so the majority of us are asking for this console to be called scorpio or scorpion.

XanderZane367d ago

Here are the names they've suggested.
Xbox Two (because, why not)
Xbox 720 (let’s get that one out of the way)
Xbox 4K
Xbox One Pro (take that, Sony!)
Xbox One +
Xbox One.5
Xbox (just Xbox)
Xbox Zero
Xbox One Prime
Xbox One Ultra
…Xbox Scorpio?

The ones I like are XBox One Prime, XBox One Ultra XBox One 4K and XBox Scorpio.
Here are some of my suggestions. XBox One Infinity., XBox One Next, XBox Beast.

Whatever Microsoft names it, it needs to stand out.

joab777367d ago (Edited 367d ago )

We are a minority. Most people will never know it was called Scorpio. Like most have no idea what Neo was.

From an adverstisemmt perspective, id go with Xbox 4k for 2 reasons. First, it's straight to the point and people will know exactly why they are purchasing it. Second, it allows them to get away from the X1 moniker chosen this gen. They will have a clean slate for next gen.

Xbox one Prime got a ring to it, xbox zero is a No

b163o1368d ago

Xbox Ultra seems to roll of the tongue....

Zool 08367d ago (Edited 367d ago )

Super ninxbox

Goldby368d ago

thats weak even for you moldy, i was expecting something like how MS is open to playing with other console gamers, access to other subscriptions and no parity... box

Eonjay368d ago

Naw, they can't make their whole existence about Sony... which is what they are doing now. Try:

Xbox Infinity.

That works on so many levels and even ties back into Halo which is a bit of cross marketing.

Razzer368d ago (Edited 368d ago )

You have quite the obsession there

stuna1367d ago

Xbox the real "pro"-crastinator!

Death367d ago


Xbox 360 Pro was around long before Sony borrowed the name. I say we leave that to last gen. Same with Elite consoles.

Rhythmattic367d ago

"Xbox 360 Pro was around long before Sony borrowed the name"

Yep, no one has ever used the tag "Pro" before..... Def a MS exclusive.... smh

I just hope Scorpio gets a Witcher 2 theme edition.

mwjw696367d ago

Its a little late to be throwing out 5 year old games hoping for a theme. But there could always be a W2 skin made for it. So you never know.

Elit3Nick367d ago

I'll forever be disappointed if they don't go with Prime, it sounds too awesome to pass on.

DJ_Professor_K367d ago

Xbox elite will make sense just as the controller ...but I will say that codenames always sounds better than the actual name of the system they just seem to capture the imagination and just grow on you my favorite I believe was katana

ccgr367d ago

I'd buy a red and blue one with that name!

The_Sage367d ago

Really?.. It a sign, right? Like Libra or Taurus?

4Sh0w367d ago (Edited 367d ago )

Sure but common traits associated with Scorpio are:

So those are some great characteristics to be associated with, which obviously they would like to emphasize rather than negative traits of the sign like jealousy and suspicion. lol

-So yeah I think Xbox Scorpio is indeed a great name, more so because it also means Scorpion which is a cool looking arachnid but deadly in the right circumstances= double meaning.

AngelicIceDiamond367d ago (Edited 367d ago )

Scorpio personality Traits: Passionate, Loyal, ambitious, Resourceful, brave, intense.

Negative traits: Jealously, Secretive, manipulative, resentful, obsessive/stalker-ish

Fun little facts I'm Sagittarius or "the truth Seeker" off topic sorry lol.

Rhythmattic367d ago

Never thought of it as a star sign, more a sting.

Paytaa368d ago

It'll probably be something like Xbox One X

Bigpappy368d ago (Edited 368d ago )

This is Phil spencer making the decisions now. Xbox1 premium, prim, platinum, Scorpio...

He seem more straight forward that Dom Matrix or whatever his name is.

No to Xbox1X.

Goldby368d ago

well in don's vision of what he wanted the xbox to be, the One was a good name for it, explained in a simple sense an all in one entertainment system.

uth11367d ago

I doubt he is making sole decision on naming. Microsoft names have all the hallmarks of being created by committee

SirJoJo367d ago

Call me crazy but I actually think
Xbox One.5 is quite clever

XanderZane367d ago

Not for a game console this powerful.
You're crazy.... (pun intended).

headblackman367d ago

@ Death

dumb name, but you just might be right. after hearing scorpio, nothing else sounds or feels right for this machine.

zivtheawesome368d ago (Edited 368d ago )

he took out xbox elite because it already existed but not xbox lol
if we are talking really only a few of them makes sense: Xbox One +, Xbox One Prime, Xbox One Ultra.
xbox one x also comes to mind.
in the end my pick is xbox one plus (+). it makes a whole lot of sense if we think about the fact phones did the plus thing already so consumers are already used to it. xbox one x is second place for me because that it could be confusing. ultra also doen't fit as it would make it seem less of a 4k console and more of an ultra setting console and 60fps boost which would detract from their actual plan for the console. can't really say anything about prime though

Wikkid666368d ago

LOL! Wow

Xbox One Elite was released a couple years ago so that's why he took it off his list. And the 360 Elite was also released.
And Ulta doesn't sound less of a 4k system??? What? 4k is UHD, which is ULTRA HIGH DEF

zivtheawesome367d ago

ultra is confusing because it makes the console seem like it would have everything on ultra settings, thats at least how i feel with that name. becaue they aren't forcing devs with the type of upgrade then in my opinion their best approach is to make it seem like any type of upgrade therefor calling it plus.
