What should Microsoft call the next gen Xbox?

OXM - What's in a name? Well, that depends on the name. "Edwin Evans-Thirlwell" is a bit rubbish, for instance, a cataclysmically posh pile-up of syllables and provincialisms. Like a man with a gangrenous leg, it cries out for abbreviation. When I was young I used to pretend "EET" stood for "Extreme Extra-Terrestrial" but sadly that trick doesn't seem to wash in the modern workplace. Fold in my middle name, "John", and you've got "idiot" in an Irish accent, or more generously, a lesser-known make of office printer.

xbox 720 is what they should call it. everyone knows it by that so.... why not? xbox durango is codename & xbox loop sounds lame.

vishant1012783d ago

720 is a retarded name. something like xbox infinity or xbox fusion sounds cooler.

NoobJobz2783d ago (Edited 2783d ago )

Infinity doesn't sound bad but I would probably change it to Infinite. Almost the same but to me it sounds better.

Edit :Ah, nvm. The more I say it, the more I don't like it. infinite, infinite. Hey do you wanna come over and play Infinite?

It's likely to be rebranded, and given a more " entertainment-central " type name.

Maybe Xbox-Raen

Which stands for..

Really Awesome Entertainment Nexus.


On a serious note, Nexus would've been a good name had it not been taken by a tablet. (such a waste)

How about Xbox 3?

I know its crazy, but thats what it is afterall

JellyJelly2783d ago

I think they could come up with something more original than that.

I think it will be something completely different than "infinity" or "loops" etc. Wouldn't be surprised if it gets an abstract name along the lines of "Zune" or something like that. Hopefully it has more meaning to it though. And sounds better.

There is some actual creativity at MS(even if the execs crush most of it). So they don't use 1,2,3 and come up with something somewhat intelligent

Grap2783d ago

it will be inferior to PS4 by that name and that something MS don't want.
