Poll: Will Microsoft stick with the Scorpio name at E3 2017? (423 votes)

Scorpio 14%
Another name (comment below) 85%

I'd appreciate if people voted as well as commented as the rules sort of rely on that...

There may have been a topic like this a while ago but I couldn't find it.

How about we turn the final name of Scorpio into a game.

As the question above asks: What will Microsoft actually call this thing?

If you think they'll stick with Scorpio, vote above and your work is done. If you think it'll be another name, select that answer and comment what you think it'll be.

I'll close entries when the press conference starts (or if it's leaked ahead of time.)

Prize for being the first right answer. A Steam Summer Sale game of your choice (when that rolls around). OR a $60 donation to a charity of your choice.

If Scorpio ends up being the name, I'll donate the % of people who chose 'scorpio' in $ to a charity of my choice, I guess. Or I'll have a second poll for which charity if people prefer. Eg. If 50% say Scorpio and it is, then that's $50 to charity. Fair? Good. Lets go...

Xbox Two U

Real answer: Xbox 4K, Xbox One 4K, X4K or X14K. If MS wants to adapt the 4K name into their product, they'll immediately make a connection with a lot of less-knowledgeable consumers that the new Microsoft console will work nicely with the big ass new television they're buying.

Xbox One Pro, Xbox One SS, Xbox One S2, Xbox One Two, The Superior Xbox.

I was joking with those names, but I think they will most likely change the name. They always mentioned Scorpio as "Project Scorpio", like a codename.

Xbox One 2 would be kind of amazing in an odd way. I think they will go with a different name but I have no idea what they'll go for.

@guybrush: I mean exactly that. I think they'll use it again. I'll go further and predict they bundle an elite controller with it to soften the blow of the price. I'm not sure how well those controllers sold, but why have two highly priced SKUs on the market?

Scorpio is a cool name, and they are onto a loser using numbers with Playstation on 4 going on 5.

I think they will do well going with the zodiac for a bit. Taurus, Capricorn etc.... maybe stop before they get to Cancer though.

It'd be cool if they did, but I doubt they keep the project name. It'll probably be something kind of dumb or boring.

No idea what the name will be but it will not be 'Scorpio.' Microsoft is not going to sell a product in 2017 called The Scorpio

I think that they have dropped the ball when they named the slim as S.

Xbox One X. Then the eventual successor will be called X2: Xbox United.

On a more serious note, it will be called "Xbox One -something-". Microsoft has telegraphed this from day one by continually saying Scorpio is part of the "Xbox One family". Calling it anything else would confuse consumers as to what it is. Remember when the average person thought the Wii U was just an add on for the Wii? Same logic applies here. By calling it "Xbox One -something-" it immediately lets people know it plays the same games, supports the same hardware, etc. I think after Scorpio they may position to calling it just "Xbox" as their service and hardware models evolve with backward and forwards compatibility in mind.

My guess is they just call it Xbox.

It's what Sony would have done with the Pro, had the PS4 not been so popular.

Kinda wish more products would take cues from anime and other Japanese media. Would love it if they named it Shin XBox or True XBox.

Question. Has the official name of a console ever been more interesting than the codename? I still want a Morpheus instead of a PSVR.

One on hand, they have been using Scorpio in several places and it has been out there in the media, so it would make sense to keep it.

On the other, so had Natal and they still changed that to Kinect.

And they have a "history" with the "Elite" name... so...

I don't think it will be Scorpio, despite that being its codename for such a long time, i don't necessarily think it's a bad name though if they do decide to keep it, but the final decision is bound to be something a lot more boring than that.
