    Xbox is the only name of the rumored one's that doesn't sound awful.
    It's funny that in this day in age people can steal as long as they have a reason too. Even if that reason is created by the thieves themselves.

    It's probably gonna be Xbox plus the infinity symbol. That would be cool.

    On 5/13/12, I predicted the next console would be called Xbox Infinity or Xfinity. I should have copyrighted those names and sold them to Microsoft.

    I don't think anyone can own the rights to the infinity symbol.

    Not on the symbol obviously but using it in a certain way can happen. It's like saying MS can't own the rights to X or B or O but guess what.

    Yea I'm sure someone could've taken Xbox with the infinity symbol except that probably can't happen due to technical reasons...which is why MS went with Xbox8. I think this pretty much confirms infinity.

    e.g. You can probably secure rights to McDonaldson...I'm sure McDonald's do not care. I bet there is a local business out there with that name. Who knows!

    Xfinity is the name of Comcast's cable service so I'm sure they already have the rights to that name.

    They own the rights to "Comcast Xfinity" not "Xbox Xfinity" I think Microsoft would be able to find a way to use the name.

    Exactly, we have to remember that if someone owns the rights to something, it's exactly that...not vaguely.

    Perhaps, but Google Xfinity and it comes up with the little trademark sign beside it. It doesn't really matter one way or another, they can always license it.

    MS likely just won't go with Xfinity but if I wanted to choose XXfinity, I can do that, if I wanted MS Xfinity, no one can stop me. As long as it's not exactly what the trademarked thing is, I can choose it.

    Think of it like choosing a user name.

    I still think it could be called Loop.
