Have been reading a bit about this... According to all the 'people in the know' we are due a new console in 2013 together with a next gen PS as well...

Anyone have any suggestions on names? They reckon XBOX 720 or XBOX Y

Most assume the name will be Xbox 720 and I'm for that it makes sense I mean 360 for a revolution so why not 2 revolutions for the next one?

New consoles are still pretty far away. They're just announcing them at next year's E3. The earliest that they could possibly be out is Christmas 2012.

He did say 2013 and that really isn't that far away! As for name 720 makes sense, but I think they might come up with something better.

720 just sounds dumb.

Of course, I thought 360 was dumb sounding as well. I thought they shoulda stuck with Xenon (the project name for the 360)

lol Xenon is also the name of the first PoS MoBo MS manufactured for the launch Xbox 360 .. the ones that died on most ppl within the year.

And who knows what they'll name it.. They need one out asap. Pretty soon every game out is gonna be on Multiple Discs. Sony is fine i think. I honestly dont see them dropping a new console anytime soon.. but they might want to fire one out within a year of MS dropping their console. Sony has a well made console and they dont have to worry about running out of disc space anytime soon. MS can improve in both of those areas.

I wouldnt mind the name xbox 720. But the trouble with that is it might make people think of 720p and with hd now at 1080 from a marketing perspective it might not be the best idea. Also with the 360 being microsoft's second console it wasn't named xbox 2 but another name entirely.

I doubt they'll call it Xbox 720 since the original xbox wasn't called Xbox 180. But really the name doesn't matter, its just a name. Game console names have been weird since the Dreamcast. Everyone will get over the name about a month after they announce it.

As far as when it will come out, I say they'll announce a new console by next years E3 and it will be out fall 2013.

Xbox 720 is only Microsoft code name you know as well as I they will name the new revised Xbox with something that will include all sections Live, Kinect, PC, Media overall. Since MS has just brought the PC section into the Live support system I see the new Xbox becoming a multibox with that said, they may even call it the Multibox 720 now, thatís a cool name.

I suppose I am not as excited as some are to the possiblility of new consoles from Microsoft or Sony. Both the XBox and PS3 are more than enough for now and for a while for me. Both have all the features i love and need.

Why change the name? That would be stupid unless the console is completely different and doesn't use anything meant for the xbox.

They should keep xbox360. That's the empire they built. Why change it.

Tristan360
07-08-2011, 03:26 PM
Xbox 720 is the worse possible name to give an Xbox. For me 360 isn't a number that should be changed, like with PS2 to PS3, it is a mark of the Xbox console. For me the name shouldn't be changed but maybe added to like with Xbox 360 Kinect.

Be original?

I know, it's a foreign idea what with the PS3 and soon PS4, but hey. I have faith. They came up with the 360, something that is unique but still maintains brand identity. I am sure they can do it again.

The 360 is called the Xbox 360 because it allows you to enjoy all types of media in one place. If it was called the 720 that wouldnt make sense anymore.

I hope they don't go with the Xbox 720. The trolls already have enough fun poking at the 360 name with their jokes, the last thing Microsoft wants to do is to give the trolls more to have fun with. It can't be called just the Xbox 3, they might even have something totally new up their sleeves next. We'll have to wait and see hopefully at E3 2012.

The reason the current console isn't called Xbox 2 is because they didn't want to seem numerically inferior to the Playstation. This rules out Xbox 3.

The reason they decided on Xbox 360 was because 360 symbolizes revolution, and the name is indicative that the console revolutionized gaming. This pretty much rules out Xbox 720 because 720 doesn't represent any thing or idea.

Because they wanted a symbolic name though, they could very well continue the trend with their new console. I'm thinking something along the lines of Xbox ∞ (Xbox Infinity). It symbolizes that the console holds no boundaries and is capable of anything. Similar to what they envisioned with the 360, but that vision would be more within grasp in the new era.

Xbox ∞ all the way.

Minty
07-14-2011, 11:42 PM
Xbox ∞ all the way.

And where they do go for Xbox 4? Xbox ∞+1? Back in the realms of jokes again now.

It will be something to do with the way they want it to be the central entertainment hub in your living room. Xbox Central or Centro could be in play. Or they'll go off the wall and go with something Greek god related or some crap.

Can't see them using 720. I hope they don't. I'd like Xbox Natal lol.

Of course, I thought 360 was dumb sounding as well. I thought they shoulda stuck with Xenon (the project name for the 360)

Agreed. I liked Xenon and I think they should go with something like that for the next Xbox (Why not? If PSP can get away with Vita, than I have no qualms with Xenon.)

Also, I wouldn't expect a new console until AT LEAST 2014 or 2015. Consoles are designed to have roughly a 10-year lifespan and honestly with the exception of the 360's disc storage space, neither the 360 nor PS3 have really reached their limits. Although some games have hit the technology ceiling, most developers and games are still averaging beneath their maximum potential.

Chaosx721
07-15-2011, 01:35 AM
I think you guys are putting too much thought into the name, the name doesn't matter as much as what's the new xbox going be?
-Will Kinect work with it? And will they continue to support it?
-Are they going to come up with a crazy controller design or stick with what they have?
-Will it have a Blu-ray drive?
-Will they finally allow you to use any size HDD of your own instead of sticking to really low space HDDs that they make?

Just some question I can think of that I want to know instead of its name that will probably sound lame for no less then two months.

Minty
07-15-2011, 01:45 AM
Of course it will support Kinect. There is no way they can keep a fanbase after charging people $150 for an accessory and then stopping supporting it 2 years later. All new Microsoft games will have Kinect support- it's here to stay.

Why does it matter what the name is? Everyone should be more concerned with its capabilities and such, not trying to guess the name or say what the name should be. If you really cared, write a letter to Microsoft or something, not litter this place with threads dedicated to guessing the next name or trashing 720.

Whatever they decide to call it, it should include "Xbox" in the name. As far as the future and the Xbox brand itself goes... they will be around for a very long time due to MS's endless money train.

It's Sony who is in trouble considering all the balls they dropped and countless mistakes they made this generation, all the money they have lost and their current financial status. I really only want Sony around because they influence competition among the big 3. Honestly though, I will not be buying another Sony console ever again, unless they change that abomination of a controller, fix their horrible download and update installation process (which is completely buttfucked backwards from the way 360 handles things), completely revamp their entire online interface and structure, and bring themselves up to the level of XBL... something I don't even think Sony is capable of with their complete lack of vision of their barebones online network.

It's funny how PS3 only guys say the only difference between the two services is cross game chat which couldn't be further from the truth and something I always enjoy debunking with ease on my part. ;)

Still though, lets wait and see, but I honestly don't think Sony has their ducks in a row like Microsoft does. Say what you will about their direction and focus on kinect, say what you will about the lack of exclusives, say what you will about their greedy business practices and why us paying gold members have to be subjected to ads on every panel of the dashboard (all points are true), but atleast in my mind's eye, they did everything else right this gen where Sony has failed me and made me care even less about their brand anymore.

I'll wait till both consoles are released before I fully come to a conclusion.

It's the fact that PC gamers including me are being kept away from high quality Triple A titles due to the aging hardware used inside consoles these days, the graphics are very poor on xbox these days and are only hitting 30FPS in games. The hardware that xbox now uses is obsolete and not powerful anymore compared to a modern day low end pc. This is why they are going with a quad core and a great 7xxx series GPU, with upwards of 8gbs of ram which should be fantastic and snappy.

aaaand what's stopping people from making PC only AAA titles of awesomeness? The business that consoles bring that PCs will probably never have, at least any time soon. I agree, the consoles are obviously way behind technology wise, but to insist that's the only reason PC gamers are being kept away from AAA titles is just silly. Even so, many of the ones you do get are crappy ports, from my understanding. Who's fault is that?

Hopefully the next generation makes it easier for games to cross platform (I'm looking at you, PS3 -.-) so everyone can enjoy the games with minimal difference in experience. Then it will probably just come down to marketing and additional content, if it ever comes to an even playing field like that.

Developers/Publishers faults...high end PC gaming is almost non existent these days because consoles are holding pc's back when it comes to games. They make sure it can run on console first.

The original Xbox (or Xbox 1) actually had a large X on the top of it. So it made sense. Current gen doesn't, they've stuck with the name for marketing purposes / brand loyalty, but essentially it's not an X-box without the X on it, that's where the original console got it's name from. Under this same logic, current xbox should just be called box. If you want the 360 part, you'd have to make it spherical as well. LOL. Names. NO LOGIC!!!!!! *feels like Sheldon Cooper, P.H.D*

Not sure when we'll get news of a new console for sure, nor the name of it. Be interesting to see the specs of the machine though. I just want a huge ass HDD. As 250GB just aint enough for me at least. I have 30+ XBLA games on mine, plus I have 10 of my retail games installed, and a crap load of DLC too. I would have more installed, but I like to keep some room spare.

I just think that they will go for something completely new when they choose a name, and that 720 will be done away with.
