If there are enough marketing dollars behind it, they can call it the Penis Shrinker and still sell millions.

I hear they also named it 360 so it had a 3 in the title so people would know what generation it is.

Posted by Afroman269

Isn't it just a code name at the moment? If they were to go with 720 it would be pretty funny, but I wouldn't mind it really.

"Xbox 362? "

So if the 360 was a total turn around in gaming, the 362 would be a total turn around and then a little bit more?

You should also note that saying "720" uses four syllables as opposed to three for "360".  Wii is one and PS3 is also three...the shorter the better.

yes, but no one says "se-ven twen-ty"  you say it like "se-ven tweny"
Posted by Baillie

That's still 4 syllables... 'se-ven twen-y'.

no its not called the 360 because it was a revolution in gaming. its called the 360 because the PS3 has a 3 in its name.
you can't put a xbox 2 up against a PS3, because people will say "why would I want a 2 when I can have a 3 because 3 is better than 2. "
so they named it 360 came up with a bullshit reason so now people say "hey they are both 3s awesome" now that is actual fucking fact.

You can't really "zing" yourself, especially when what you say doesn't deserve a "zing". Usually a zing follows a witty comment, and is offered by someone else.
 
That's like laughing at your own joke, or clapping for yourself.

Which I usually do in real life anyways.

Xbox Natal. I'm 99% certain that will be the next Xbox's name. Wouldn't mind that, it has a good ring to it, I just hope that Natal doesn't become the main standard controller. I'm fine with some games that take advantage of motion controls, they are quite fun. But forcing them onto every game just limits what developers can do. I cannot see Halo or Half-Life working without a keyboard or standard controller. Maybe for those types of games we will see a controller + Natal combo where Natal is for simple things like voice chat, scrolling menus, and the standard controller is used to actually play the game.

" Creamypies is correct though, it's not the name, it's just what everyone calls the next XBox because we don't know the name. Like I said, 360x2 = 720, so the second 360 is called 720. It's just a temporary name dude, don't worry about it.  Now if Microsoft actually names it 720, then it's dumb. But right now, it's just a stupid code name that people have to use, because Xbox 3 sounds even stupider than Xbox 720. "
But the 360 is the 2nd Xbox, therefore 360/2=180, 180x3=540, XBox 540 is the logical name for the 3rd Xbox console.

you dont pause when you say tweny, and it doesnt take any longer or isnt any harder to say than 360

Can we just agree that the name 'Xbox' in general is fucking stupid?

That implies that the 360 is half an Xbox, but its a 360° turn, coming full circle and making changes on the way. So a second 360° turn would result in a total of 720°.

I thought 720 was always a joke. It never really occurred to me that someone actually thought that would be a viable name for the next XBOX.

@Alex_Murphy: Haha dude thats awesome I am sure some people would object but that would be hilarious. Xbox:420 Get high in HD Baby!
Posted by iam3green

i don't think it will be xbox 720 as some people might think 720 as in 720p for the pixels. they will see ps4 and it will see 1080p then see 720 and think o it only goes to 720p. i think that they will make it something cleaver. xbox^400 or something like that.   
 
i kind of wounder that since the 360 has problems people are going to wait to a while to see if the next xbox  works perfectly. 
 
i have a joke about the 360. u know why the microsoft named it 360? because it goes in a 360 degree cycle, people buy the 360, it breaks, people send it in and repaired, microsoft sends it back. it goes in the cycle again.

Posted by Lies

The Xbox 360 name came because Microsoft thought calling it Xbox 2 would make it seem behind the Playstation 3. So they threw a 3 into their name as well.
 
720 makes about as much sense as 360 did.

Nintendo released two systems with the Nintendo Entertainment System name. There were also three main Game Boy systems, with the brand lasting for 19 years (the last GBA game was released in 2008). And Sony has been using the PlayStation brand for almost 15 years, with no signs of stopping any time in the future. When you've got a brand that people know and respect, sometimes you want to stick with that. 

Especially if you're a company like Sony or Microsoft, who are primarily electronics manufacturers and software developers. PlayStation is Sony's video game brand, and Xbox i s Microsoft's video game brand. People don't normally think of Microsoft as a console manufacturer, but they recognize the Xbox as a video game console.

If you're saying what I think you're saying, then I agree with you. I think it would be a bad move if Microsoft dropped the Xbox name because that is what people have come to known. And not only do people not think of Microsoft as a console manufacturer, it's a name tied to so many different things that adding it to the name of a new console would ruin its uniqueness. The Xbox name is something unique that (almost) everyone has come to known, even if they're not gamers. 
 
Personally I think it was a mistake of Microsoft to name this console Xbox 360. Yes, it might've made sense from a marketing standpoint at the time, but it will only make it that much harder to come up with a proper Xbox name in the next iteration of the console. But hey, maybe I'm wrong and they already have an amazing name lined up for the next console. But I seriously doubt they will be dropping the Xbox brand.

Yea, I agree with you; if they keep this trend up, won't it just become "Xbo-BWAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!"? (I know, incredibly stupid joke, but I just wanted to say it.)

That was essentially what I was getting at, and neither of you guys provided an alternate name with xbox in it thereby furthering my MASSIVE POINT.  CAN"T WAIT TO PLAY 720 or XBOX CUBED
Posted by MrKlorox

I agree. The next Xbox being named 720 sounds as retarded as the next GTA being named GTA5. We all know it won't happen, but it's a generic placeholder. Plus people tend to forget the first xbox ever existed.

@MasterOfPenguins_Zell:  You know, I think I am ready for a next generation actually........ but I don't mind when it's released, devs are finally hitting their stride with the current gen consoles and as long as there are the ME 2, Heavy Rain and the like, I'm cool. 
 
I am interested in the rumours surrounding forwards/backwards compatibility with the next gen of xbox.
Posted by mano521

haha my friend used to say that.   he didnt own any next gen gaming system (except the wii but that really doesnt count at all) 
 
and he jsut goes "yea well i got an xbox 720"   
 
it got annoying fast lol

i don't care what it's called as long as i can transfer everything i've downloaded on the 360 over to it. honestly i wouldn't care if the next box was just an upgraded 360 with built in natal or something.

IF it is a "new" System and not just a natal upgrade i dont see them transferring the DL games. As little Backward compatibility support they have i just dont see it

I didn't provide an alternate name with Xbox in it because I couldn't be bothered to think of anything. Maybe if MS paid me lots of dollars I would be persuaded to use my brain.... Maybe...

Insert Wii joke
 
Any name is fine. I call my 360 'the Xbox' when talking about it, and if the next has Xbox in it's name, I'll call that the Xbox aswell.

Edited by brukaoru

I'm pretty certain it will not be called Xbox 720 just for the sheer fact-- as Geoff Keighley pointed out once-- that some consumers may get confused and think the next Xbox could only go up to 720 progressive in HD.

I really do hope they make it backwards compatible with 360 games and downloaded games. I think that should be the number one feature for the next Xbox system.
Posted by Inf225

Well the real reason it was called the 360 was becuase they wanted a 3 in it like the PS3. So, they should just call the next one Xbox 420...
