From Cheap Ass Gamer:

I'm not completely positive how true this is, but most of the things GilZ sends my way are true. He was correct about the new price drops, new HDMI models, new Elites, and now a picture sent to us with clearly visible text, in what appears to be either the 360's new name or the next xbox's final name. "XBOXPure" is what looks to be the final choice in this document. Take a look!

Here are some of the photos he sent way back when, before anybody knew about what was an Elite and HDMI on the 360.

Hopefully it's pure red-ring resistant...

Again, always with the crap names. They should ask the public, guaranteed atleast one of the world's population can come up with a better name than pure. :p

Xbox Pure sounds a bit.... Shit.

They could have at least been a bit silly with the name like Xbox 720 or Xbox 360 Mark II Elite Premium.... I dunno....

Come on, a bunch of people in a small room couldn't come up with something better. Makes me worry about what they might name their next gen console

Mmm interesting, it could be the name because i dont think Xbox 3 or 1000 or any numbers would work so im thinking it will be something like Xbox Pure or ultimate or some other word.

That's it? Pure?

I honestly could care less about the name, as long as there are good games and it doesn't die every month, I'll go for it.

Atleast Pure is a better name than Wii.

XBOX360 - name change

If you take that literally, then this has nothing to do with a new Xbox. It's a codename change for the current Xbox360. Which effects us... in absolutely no way.

It was a hoax anyway. It was created by a member of CAG to see which sites would run with it ;)

Webb is Correct update from Kotaku

UPDATE: It appears that this rumor story could be CAG throwing their credibility out the window as part of a contest. Kotaku''s decision to run rumors is always based on the credibility of the site and the information contained within it. In the past CAG has proven to be a reliable site, having broken a number of stories through apt reporting. It appears that may no longer be the case.

Side Note: people need to remember rumors are just that rumors and should be taken with a grain of salt and not by just one persons blog post

Even though it's a hoax and people are freaking out about the new name sounding dumb ... have you every looked at the stations' names?

Play Station ...
X box ...
Game Cube ...
Wii ...

I think the only decent system name was either Dreamcast or Genesis.

Genesis x360a

The Magnavox Odyssey is a cool system name, and you know it.

Anyway, everyone now hates Kotkau for being such a baby about the whole thing. They got way to defence about posting a false rumor. If they actually checked there source and facts, it would have never been posted.
