No research has gone into this claim, but it would be an awesome name.

Also it would follow Microsoft trying to keep up with PS4, as Delta looks kind of like a 4. (Capital at least)

Then people could do those conspiracy pictures (X, X; Square, Box; Circle, 360; Triangle, Delta) pictures with completion...

And Xbox Delta rolls off the tongue.

(Microsoft people, if you're browsing this forum, this one's on me.)

Oh, also, the way that they could justify it is through the definition of delta as a landform at the mouth of a river, as it brings together all sorts of media (gaming, movies/TV, music, etc) I mean hey, it's no less far fetched than the 360 holding its breath.

Nah it'll be called the Xbox 8. 
 
It serves both the purpose of marketing Windows 8 and making soccer moms believe it's better than the PS4 because the number is higher.

Everyone is wrong. They are going to call it "Price Gouging Netflix Machine."

#14 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

Hey, whatever people pick that isn't "720" or any other dumb number that means "we spin around in a circle and end up in exactly the same spot as last time" is a good name for the new Xbox.

It will be called the Xbox Beta, because there really is no final version of the UI or functionality, and the system is constantly in beta.

Will it lose your luggage and have shitty seats?

In mathematics, Delta refers to change, so perhaps 'twould be suitable for this as well?

If modern trends have anything to say about it, it will be called 'The New Xbox'.

I heard it's going to be called Xbox 8 to go along with Windows 8.

Xbox Delta does sound cool though.

I heard something, recently, about Direct X being deprecated. Presumably with the intention of building an entirely new API from scratch sans the baggage of the last fifteen years? If that's true, then it would be kind of weird to keep calling it the XBox anything (although, obviously, they will).

#30 Posted by TheDigitalistic (70 posts) -

Didn't any of you watch the super bowl?

It's the Xbox Horizon.

#31 Posted by DaMisterChief (628 posts) -

The New Xbox no doubt, if you look at the way they are presenting the xbox logo recently (xbox music, xbox video) they'll keep the xbox Logo and lose the circle behind it.

This.....it would go along with the reboot fad.

#34 Posted by Superfriend (1543 posts) -

They might as well name it "please don´t buy this system, use an Ipad or something" at this point.

Seriously "Delta" is the worst shit ever. I doubt they would do it, even if it would probably appeal to the military fartheads out there.

#38 Edited by MikkaQ (10283 posts) -

Just make the Xbox 420, you'll satisfy the system's main demographic and have a higher number on the box than both the new Playstation and previous Xbox.

Also Xbox Delta just makes me think of an Xbox catered to people who live in Mississippi or something. An Xbox that plays 80 year old blues standards. Something like that.

Unfounded speculation: The next Xbox will NOT be called Xbox Delta.

I was going to ask if the base price included meal service or do you have to pay extra for that. :/
