XBOX 720
XBOX INFINITY
XBOX FUSION
XBOX

I would have just kept it simple with XBOX who cares if its the original machines name people are hardly gonna get confused LOL but xbox one
could this be setup then for future consoles to follow with the name
XBOX TWO

I think playstation had it lucky with the numbers thing you cant go wrong with 2,3,4,5,6

its probably why Nintendo wouldn't name the Wii U Wii2 it would seem like copying but WII U is a crap name

The Xbox Home Entertainment System.

As far as One goes: They named it that because it is exactly what I said above, a home entertainment system in One box. So I doubt it is a set up to go with a 'normal' numbering system down the line, though they could end up doing that.

The 'Xbox One' name is idiotic...!!!!

Yes - they gave it the 'One' monicker purely because it is various systems all crammed together in 'One' box, however, what are they gonna call the next version of the Xbox One - 'Xbox One 2'..??????

I immediately thought of the HTC One when they announced the name.

Should of been something a bit more unique. I guess the Xbox should be around longer than the phone though.

I just think they should have called it XBOX MK.III and then called all the others from then on a different mark. Not flashy or anything but saves having to think of a new name and it wouldn't confuse the customers.

Xbox One is a pretty stupid name to call the third in the series. I always refer to the original Xbox as the Xbox 1 and I'm sure a lot of other people do too.

They messed up when they called the Xbox 360. If they'd called it simply 'Xbox 2' then they wouldn't have any issues now.

I'm glad they didn't go with early choice "Xbox: Fart-belching Felch-machine" though...

By your reasoning they should have called this new console the Xbox 361 or the 'Xbox 360-2'.

Xbox one is fine. There was a lot of hilarity when Nintendo released the name for the 'Wii' but nobody cared after a while.

Wasn't peoples arguments for them not calling Xbox 360, Xbox 2 the fact that they'd look like they're behind the PS3?

So they then decide to call it Xbox One then Sony is on to PS4.
