We all know that Xbox Project Scorpio is a development codename. But, what will the powerful system be called? Here are 11 suggestions.
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.
it aint gonna stay because it would sell off of that name.
Xbox scorpio needs more than 11 exclusive games suggestion
And the Playstation hoard need new more original troll tactics
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 ideas.....as long as its not dumb like "Xbox Zero".
@ gtr there isn't 11 exclusives on the PS4 I want to play
@Condemnedman Let me see if I can name 11 PS4 exclusives I still want to play. 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..
Just call it the xbox elite and get it over and done with ;)
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.
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.
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)
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.
@ 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.
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.
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
Xbox Ultra seems to roll of the tongue....
I was expecting Chris Rock to say "Xbox Zero Exclusives"
Xbox one pro,final name
how about xbox - the real pro
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
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.
You have quite the obsession there
Xbox the real "pro"-crastinator!
@Moldy, Xbox 360 Pro was around long before Sony borrowed the name. I say we leave that to last gen. Same with Elite consoles.
@Death "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.
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.
I'll forever be disappointed if they don't go with Prime, it sounds too awesome to pass on.
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
I'd buy a red and blue one with that name!
How about XboxNext
Xbox scorpio best name ever
Really?.. It a sign, right? Like Libra or Taurus?
Sure but common traits associated with Scorpio are: Leadership Resourcefulness Passion 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 http://www.astrology-zodiac... -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.
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.
Never thought of it as a star sign, more a sting.
It'll probably be something like Xbox One X
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.
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.
I doubt he is making sole decision on naming. Microsoft names have all the hallmarks of being created by committee
Call me crazy but I actually think Xbox One.5 is quite clever
Not for a game console this powerful. You're crazy.... (pun intended).
@ Death dumb name, but you just might be right. after hearing scorpio, nothing else sounds or feels right for this machine.
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
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
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.
From what I have read around the internet I'm pretty sure XBone The Duece "BM" is the most popular. I feel it really captures the spirit of Microsoft. Whenever people hear it their soul knows it's a Microsoft product.
I gotta name "Xbox Tyasia needs to get a life" Has a nice ring to it huh? I like it. You need banning from the Xbox sections since you add nothing but trolling, negativity over all fanboyism. Then you can keep your crappy insecurities to yourself. Nobody likes you, nobody so run along under your rock where you belong and stay there forever and ever.
Man, Xbox trolling is at an all time high around here. Can't wait till E3 and the Scorpio reveal. It'll be fun to see all the trolls crawl back under their bridges.
What, it's not my name, I heard it on the internet, it's really popular. It makes perfect sense The Deuce comes after One And BM is beast mode... did you think it was something else? Does BM stand for something else?
Xbox Flush, I mean they want to forget all wrong things of the past right ? :D
They should just name it Mic Drop
Drop the Deuce has a nice ring to it.
So when is the PS4 salty edition comming out?
When the PS5 comes out and the PS4 has no exclusive games?
Xbox One Up. Can't believe nobody has suggested it yet. Xbox 1Up.
Pro I think is out given they dont want people to think the Scorpio and PS4 Pro are on the same level. In that same vein I think Ultra is out as well as they wont want Xbox One U to be a thing. Xbox One 4K seems like its too targeted and would alienate anyone with 1080P TV's as they still will get benefit from the upgrade. Xbox One X could be likely and I could see the Xbox One Prime be a thing too. I think those are two I would bet on.. Prime I think being my favorite.
Xbox One X sounds too much like Xbox One S (especially over the phone) would cause market confusion. "Prime" is so associated with Amazon, they likely wont go with that. they can't use Elite either, because they already used that on an Elite controller+console bundle. i really only see "Xbox" & "Xbox 2" being an option.
