Why did people think it'd be called Xbox 720?

It sounds awful, and makes no sense.

If you really have to ask why people would have assumed so, we have nothing to discuss. It's so obvious why people thought so.

Whether people liked the name of it is a different topic.

Compared to the Xbox One as the third console in the line, Xbox 720 sounds pretty reasonable

I am not an early adopter. If your system is as awesome as you say it is, it will still be in stores when the games I want are out.

Because you see it and walk 720 degrees away.

720 is just doubling 360, while one stands for "All in one"

The XBox One is the third console, not the first. The first console isn't called the XBox 1, and the second console isn't called the XBox 2. Instead, the second console is the XBox 360, which despite having a "3" in the name, isn't the third console.

Smart move, Microsoft. Simply genius. I hope they call the console after this the XBox Two, and then call the one after that XBox 5three, just to confuse people even worse.

Nintendo doesn't use numbers, either.

I don't wanna be that guy but that would mean you spin around twice and then continue walking toward it

But Sony does. And guess who NEVER gets the names messed up.

Typical response: "Please, that's boring and not innovative. Any idiot can add by 1."

Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. After that, who cares? You're a mile away and have his shoes.
