    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

    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.

    Moved to Microsoft forum.

    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.
