Have heard rumours that MS will just revert back to x-box.

If I were a betting man I'd go for "Xbox". It just makes sense.

No it doesn't. We have already had the Xbox, why bother with the same name again ?

I'm fed up with everyone becoming so lazy when it comes to naming something these days. I mean the new Tomb Raider game is called Tomb Raider nothing else, just Tomb Raider, i am sure we had a game with the same name on the PS1 . Same with Prince of Persia, and Sonic The Hedgehog. It's just lazy. You see it in films these days as well.

They should just call it Glitch Box, if it's anything like the 360 then i couldn't think of a more fitting name.

I hate it being referred to as the 720 simply because it doesn't make sense.

Oh come on! It's 2 rotations! A 1-up on 1! It's absolutely creative, imaginative brilliance!

Not to mention logical. It's exactly what you might attempt after spinning around once.

I'm no so nearly excited about the new hardware as I am about the new name.

I heard Xbox Infinity being bandied around. It has a certain ring to it. Just dont call it Xbox, please. I've still got an XBox1 set up, as well as a 360. Another one called XBox will just get confusing.
Let's face it, they could call it anything, and it would sound better than "Wii U".

I think that "Xbox 720" would be avoided out of fear that some people may think it only does 720p.

To me the name of the system is not important when I buy a new console. The specs, games and look of the system plays a bigger part.
