No, because that would be the dumbest name ever.

#3 Posted by Megalon (1392 posts) -

They'd be crazy not to release another console eventually, though I'm pretty sure it's not going to be named the 720. I'm guessing 2010-ish we'll at least see or hear something about it at E3.

Yeah I doubt it would be called the 720, that'd be silly.  360 is pretty dumb also, I miss they days where they used to be the bit counts, I want my Mario 128!

John Carmack  once officially said the word Xbox 720  in E3 2007 . but I doubt it
Xbox 3 , Xbox 2012 , Xbox ultimate , Xbox  X , ........................ there are hundreds of names .

#6 Posted by Lind_L_Taylor (3966 posts) -

I think it'll be called XP.

#7 Posted by Bucketdeth (8012 posts) -

Yeah it will release a new console but I highly doubt 720, although sony has been continuing the playstation name, 2 and 3.

Because they would have been stupid to change the "Playstation" brand. Much like I doubt Nintendo will drop the Wii name with their next console.

I dunno what they'll call the XBOX 3 though.

I'm going to take a wild guess that the next xbox will be called the Xbox 4000.

True. You get my + rating
#15 Edited by SolemnOaf (535 posts) -

that's not true, that stupidity.  They'd have to be dumber than you to abandon a brand name they've built up over a decade, which I doubt would even be possible without the major loss of some motor control such that they would not be able to type properly.

Xbox ultimate
Sexbox.

XBOX 420 420 420 420 420 420!!!

It's got 4 in the name.

#28 Posted by NateDogg (465 posts) -

Can't think of a future name.. But I don't think a new Xbox will be launched for at least another 3-4 years.

#29 Posted by LiquidPrince (15952 posts) -

X-Box Evolution!

#30 Posted by JoblessTerence (349 posts) -

Xbox Genesis? Xbox 2600? Super Xbox? X Cube?

I think they'll change the name of their next console. It has to be a cool name though. It can't be lame. That'd be lame.

#31 Posted by Matthew (1912 posts) -

Just like a lot of you have said, it won't come out for at least two years, although I expect to start hearing rumors as early as Q4 2009.  Rumored specs, etc. 

But I personally think they might drop the Xbox tag.  They've been doing a decent job to keep Microsoft tied to the name, much as Sony and Nintendo do to theirs. 
They went with the 360 tag because at the time Wii was still called Revolution, and if they had a 2 after Xbox, it would seem inferior to the triple at the end of the Sony console.

#32 Posted by Kazona (3068 posts) -

I say they call it Exah!Boxah!

#33 Posted by tekmojo (2302 posts) -

#38 Posted by Manachild (512 posts) -

i doubt they would call it the 720, i personally think Playstation 4 sounds weird too i cant explain why but it does.

#39 Posted by Otacon (2209 posts) -

Not thinking about it really, just bought a 360 myself. I can imagine them calling it something pretentious though like, Xbox next. Come to think of it, that sounds better in my head than on paper.

#40 Edited by Moz (3 posts) -

Well the next windows is being called WIndows 7 so maybe Xbox 3 or Xbox 7 to match lol

edit:

or if the current trend in consumer electronics continues it'll be the iBox or iXBox

#41 Posted by Red (5995 posts) -

I think it should be the Xbox Squared or maybe even the Xbox Cubed.

#42 Posted by TekZero (2672 posts) -

When thinking of a name for the next 360, you have to predict just what kind of system it's going to be.  The reason why the Xbox 360 was called the 360 and not the Xbox 2.. was because of the all around capability of the system.  The 360 is centered around XBL and it's way of conecting the user to music, movies, games, friends.. if you want, the 360 is the only system you need in your house.. So calling it the Xbox 360 makes total sense.

We can't predict what the name of the next Xbox is going to be because we have no idea what Microsoft has in mind for the system.  IF you want to try to predict the name, the first thing you have to do is figure out in what direction Microsoft is going with it's new system.

Dont forget that the new playstation that was upcoming would have a 3 in its name.
#44 Posted by TekZero (2672 posts) -

^^ Yeah exactly.  Microsoft didn't want an Xbox 2 because of the similarities to the PS 3.  I would think so, I can't really back this up.

Exactly. They wanted a 3 in it because Xbox 2 sounds old and less powerful than Playstation 3, so they wanted a 3 in the name so it sounded similar to PS3. Microsoft execs have openly said this (Although I don't have an exact quote handy).

What reason would Nintendo have for keeping the Wii name for a knew console? The only console that they have had that's kept the same name is the Game Boy. All of their home consoles have had different names. "Nintendo Entertainment System", "Super Nintendo Entertainment System", "Nintendo 64", "Nintendo Gamecube", "Nintendo Wii". I don't see anything there that would suggest keeping the name Wii for their next console... unless they named it "Super Nintendo Wii".
