I have a feeling that the next Xbox will be called....Xbox Live. I think it makes a lot of sense if it's going to require a network connection (IF being the key word) and they're thinking about focusing on entertainment as a whole. What do you guys think? Sorry if there are a lot of other posts about the next Xbox. I wanted to make my own.

@spraynardtatum: I had the exact same thought the other day, xbox 720 sounds too dumb they want to call the 360 "xbox 2" because of the ps3 so they are unlikely to go xbox3 for same reason I thought maybe they would go for just Xbox even though we have already had that.

I still say the 360 should have been Yboy and the next one should be Zboz.

Zboz is the future.

That's some serious Wii-U level market confusion there. Microsoft already has a product called Xbox Live and it's quite popular. Imagine if you will:

Mom, I want Xbox Live for christmas

But you already have Xbox Live

No, there's a new one it's [insert price here]

That's really expensive .Why can't you use the one you already have?

No this is a new box!

A new xbox?

NO ITS CALLED XBOX LIVE NOW JESUS MOM

Why don't I just get you a Playstation 4 instead?

Okay :[

The infinity symbol on the pre-announcement material makes me think that it will actually be called Xbox infinity or continuum or something implying that this thing will be around for a while. Calling it the 720 or the 3 or just means that it's a stepping stone to the next thing, the 1080 or 4 or what have you. Calling it the infinity could mean they want this thing stay with you for another 6-8 years. How they do this would be interesting to see but it does support the popular theory that this thing may have more a focus on media outside of gaming since that is much easier to support year over year than gaming (because gaming performance is tied directly to the hardware).

@renegadedoppelganger: Yep it would definitely cause confusion. I imagine Microsoft would take the Wii U's example and do everything opposite that they did. It'd require A LOT of media coverage leading up to the release but I imagine that's going to happen anyways. Here's my answer to that though. They stop calling the membership Xbox Live. They switch the name to just Xbox Gold. I haven't thought any of this through but man do I think I'm right.

Also here's my problem with calling it Infinity. Where do they go from there? They're painting themselves into a corner for the...next next generation. If it's called the Infinity I feel like that means Microsoft is done making consoles after this one.

It's totally going to be Xbox Live :)

I thought that was the name some cable company put on their cable box or something? I remember seeing a commercial for it in Canada.

Me too. It should be huge though. Like my hand would be a little smaller than the power button.

I'd be okay with that if it was as tall as a person and all the vents were backlit. It should double as a TV stand.
