    Seriously though, whatever they go with; I think they've kind of shot themselves in the foot (now) by not just going numerical, straight up 1, 2, 3 etc with their naming.

    Though they could always go Nintendo style, as they don't do that.

    From the beginning I didn't like the Xbox branding... It sounds too nerdy... too geek oriented. I liked the Dreamcast name for example... great name... bad everything else :P

    I don't think it's that important how they name it unless they commit branding suicide. I don't think it will be called Xbox 720 (though it appeared as such in the "Real Steel" movie) just because it resembles the most basic HD resolution I don't see them eager to be related with (720p) and they definitely wouldn't like to call it numerically when the Playstation was 1 number ahead... the very basics of branding.

    Whatever the name is, it will be better than X-box alone, and it will be the less thing I will worry about if the games are right, that's for sure =)

    Xbox Infinity sounds quite likely

    Could be worse, they could actually call it Durango

    ^both are derivative

    Didn't microsoft say 720 wasn't going to be the name. they'll likely name it Xbox 8 or infinity

    or xbox 11.1 if they want to be dramatic

    If the next Xbox is ACTUALLY called the Xbox 720.... that is going to be the stupidest name for a console ever. period

    No... that would be the Wii or WiiU. Take your pick. At least Xbox 720 makes some sense.

    Calling it the 720 would be a huge mistake in my opinion.

    If they call it the 720 then that system will need a couple of skate boarding and snowboarding games.

    That and native 720p will be a MUST!

    As long as MS doesn't call the next XBox the 4K... Lofty standards.

    I really hope it isn't called the 720. That just sounds retarded. They can be a little more creative than that.
