It annoys me when Digitalspy articles call it the 'Xbox 720'

That's clearly not what it's going to be called. We don't even know what it's going to be called.

Is there any way we can contact Digitalspy in large numbers and get them to ****ing pay attention to us? I've tried sending emails but obviously they get ignored because they don't care about the accuracy of their content.

They'll probably still call it the 720. It's nothing more than really bad journalism. Really really bad. Terrible. The saddest thing about them is they don't even read the emails from people telling them that their journalism is wrong.

Somebody needs to be fired. I'm embarassed for the website.

They should call it the Xbox 365 if it's always online

It's grossly inaccurate. And with a website the size of digitalspy, I would've thought they'd want a relatively high level of integrity when it comes to their articles.

Xbox 720 is what a child would call it. They probably wouldn't even call it that.

The word infinity just makes me think of the 3 BT gits.

Write to the digitalspy management. If we get enough people to do it then they can rectify their continued mistakes and poor journalism.

Their gaming articles are always false and pretty much ridiculous at times.

Xbox 720 is certainly easier than referring to it as "The as yet unnamed next generation system from Microsoft"

What's wrong with 'Next-gen Xbox'?

It would make better sense even, to call it the Xbox 3. My point is that they've given it a name that it's obviously not going to be and that's terrible journalism.

If you google "Xbox 720" you'll see nearly all the gaming or tech sites are referring to the console in the same way. What's the problem exactly?

What is wrong with using Durango? I've been calling it this for months, like I called the PS4 before release, Orbis.

Code names are so much better than just branding it whatever name you want or gossip media sites, like this one, tells you - That way in your head you know it's just a code name and it doesn't get imprinted into your head - Like the idea of the Xbox 720 now has... Lets be fair there has been so many rumors about the Durango. My favorite is that they will be going back to just XBOX... I mean what?! I'll be calling it the Durango until May 21st and the name is actually released and even though I won't be purchasing the console and will be continuing my very long running support for Sony, I'm still really looking forward to seeing what the console will offer for you Microsoft fans... And I hope they come up with a better name than just XBOX or 720.

But calling the current one the Xbox 360 is some kind of genius name?

If people want to call it the Xbox 720 then let them call it the Xbox 720.

It didn't harm anyone when people were calling the PS4 the PS4 before it was confirmed and, guess what, that's what it's called.

Yeah that's what I think, I think they are going to go the Apple route and just call it XBox.
