What? when the hell did we start calling it Xbox 420? as far as I know we've always called it the Xbox 720 for our lame made up name?

I've never heard anyone call it the Xbox 420.

You know the fuck what, that is actually the best name suggested so far. Way better than 720. And I would be totally OK with it. Despite the fact it's the third xbox and all.

Because 420 jokes and pot jokes in general are boring and tired as fuck. Get a job.

I did hear Xbox 420 here and there a while ago so the OP isn't crazy as some say , but it doesn't "make sense" either since the Xbox 360 isn't the third Xbox so the whole it needs to be 420 to compete with the PS4 it's kinda silly I don't think Microsoft cares about that anyways , not that it matters if it's called 720 people will be pissed that they couldn't think in something "original" and if it's call something different people will say the name is dumb.

I'd get a good chuckle if the console was called the Xbox 420. That said, I think both the PlayStation and Xbox brands will be moving away from numbered iterations. It just doesn't seem like anyone cares at this point.

@FluxWaveZ: @Dagbiker: Actually I remember Jeff calling it the Xbox 420 on one of the Bombcasts, even though I've never heard anyone say it before or afterwards.

Here's the part:

@mscupcakes: I really meant that the term has never been widely used to refer to the Xbox 360's sequel, but I had forgotten about that Bombcast segment.

Hey, it's been a 11 years. That's more than enough time to just call it "Xbox" all over again. That's the hip thing to do right? Just reboot everything, numbers are so passé.

Or even better "The Xbox," or how about, "3xbox." Get it? Exbox, with a three.

Nextbox or GTFO.  Also the terribleness of "All Your Entertainment. One Box." as the suggested tagline made me want to cry.

They should just call it "Xbox 361" to troll everyone.

Ok, then I am totally wrong. It has been referred to as the Xbox 420. Feel free to ignore my other post.
