Because the Next Xbox will be out for much longer by the time they release Windows 9 OS, so they would have to release a new Xbox 9 for no reason or else rename it.

So we can go ahead and scratch Xbox 8 off the list of possible names because it is highly illogical Microsoft would choose a name like that.

Unless they decide it's the choice console of generation 8 videogames...

I don't know, too early to say. I think they might call it that because its 8th gen console, will use windows 8 (varient) os, 8 core, 8 gb ram and 8 year release after the 360. Also using 8 would sound 2x that of the ps4 if that makes sense.

There won't be windows 9. Microsoft will start doing small incremental updates every year, starting with windows blue this december.

You're right. They will call it Xbox Infinity (8 side-ways).

Xbox Infinity

This is the name I think they'll use too. Quite a few reasons why I think they will. But one of the big ones is the new ship introduced in Halo 4 is called Infinity.
