x360a After the 360?

I was just curious, what exactly is going to happen with x360a when the new Xbox comes out? Is the site just going to change its name or something so we keep our posts/achievements and such?

If anyone knows that would be awesome!

I'm sure the site name will stay the same.

I second this.

The name can't be changed! x360a just sounds so right.

I don't really see why it would, the achievement system has been on multiple platforms for awhile without a (public) name change consideration. When the new system comes out it will obviously have achievements and be the primary focus, but that doesn't make the 360 irrelevant by any means. The site has been called x360a for 6 years, a name change would be massively abrupt so it may very well not happen.

I'm not site staff though, so I could be way off base :x

tl;dr - Call it the Xbox One or X1.

This makes sense. I was just wondering since the 720 was going to come out, when it did would it be called x720a instead? Just a thought I had come to mind and I wasn't sure what everyone was thinking. I like x360a much more it looks better haha

How do you know it'll be '720', are you from the future?

I wish people would stop calling it Xbox 720. The more I read it, the more I believe everybody believes everything they read on the Internet.

The site name can change, that's no big deal. I've been apart of a few websites where they went through a change and typing out the old URL will just re-direct you to the new one. No big deal there either.

The new xbox will not have the 720 thing on it, i think MS marketing will come up with something like "X8" (Xbox+ windows 8) or Metrobox or somte shit like this.

And i doubt that the megabrains behind this site will change the name,
never ever change a running system...

Screw the site name change, how about them spambots tonight? Over 3 pages of shit and no one around to take care of it. I don't even know which thread is legit and which one is spam.

It will probably have to shut down.

Everytime someone asks about the new "720", a lawn gnome dies.....think of the lawn gnomes.

Sorry, it's just since everyone seems to dislike the name 720 it's hard to distinguished sarcasm from non-sarcasm

I don't care what people call it, just like poking fun at the 720 as it's so common

Is the 360 going to die when the Durango gets a name and released? No.
Are we going to have a site for the next console? Yes.
Is there anything to worry about? No.

About the only thing I can think of would be that a new domain name is claimed, redirecting back to x360a. But I know I ain't changing my gamertag again.

They deserve it, though. After all that crap I went throuugh in Half-Life... I really do need to resist accidentally, repeatedly running over my mother's garden gnomes when I am mowing the lawn.

I don't think this site would change that much. There will still be a ton of people playing the xbox 360 (including me) when the new console comes out.

Maybe I'm the odd man out but I hate the 720 term. I'd rather see Next Xbox. Or Xbox Infinity. Even Durango 360. But 720 grinds my gears. Silly I know.

ZBOX! The letter after X! Seriously man, every damn thread someone says 720 and I always see you respond. XD

Seriously though. I'm gonna call it ZBox from now on just to bother people.
