Doesn't make much sense to me from a marketing standpoint. It's almost as bad as "Wii U." I think 720 would've been better since it's 360 times 2. When I hear "Xbox One," I think the original Xbox, like people say Sonic 1 when referring to the original Sonic game even though it wasn't actually called "Sonic 1." --- PSN- TJ_UNLIMITED Gamertag- TJ UNLIMIT3D
They didn't call it Xbox 360 just for the hell of it. It was something about a 360 degrees experience or something. No point in calling the next one 720, since that'd just be another 360. Still, I see your point in how ignorant consumers might get confused by naming it "Xbox One."
