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.

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".

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.

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.

Inzo123d 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_Evil123d ago (Edited 123d 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)

SideNote123d 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.

headblackman123d 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.

XanderZane123d 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.

joab777123d ago (Edited 123d 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.

moldybread124d ago

how about xbox - the real pro

Goldby123d 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

Eonjay123d 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.

Razzer123d ago (Edited 123d ago )

You have quite the obsession there

stuna1123d ago

Xbox the real "pro"-crastinator!

Death123d ago


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