So why do they call it the 360?

Because when you see it, you turn 360 degrees and walk away!

No, but seriously, why? I know the 64 was because it was 64 bit... why Xbox 360? I can't seem to figure it out. Nobody I talk to about it can, either.

I never really got why people say this. I mean, if you turn 360 degrees, your walking toward the Xbox 360 then walking away.

Anyway, not really sure why the call it the Xbox 360. Maybe they thought it was a catchy name?

unless your being ironic and quoting the michael jackson gif 360 means you spin and then technically walk back towards it >.>

xbox vs playstation

xbox 2 sounds inferior or simply "less" than playstation 3

hence the 360

But why use 360 then? Why not call it the Xbox 3 or something? That's what I'm wondering, what the significance of the number to the system is.

because its not an xbox 3?

/mindblown...

(seriously this isnt leisure suit larry now, google it for the joke :P but its what the marketing department determined, why do muscle cars have such "powerful names" to give the impression and feeling of prestige to the buyer, i dont think the new "lamborghini cat with tail on fire" would sell very well even if the name does determine itll be fast as hell)

Doing a 360 sends you right back to the 360.

'Cept it wasn't. The guy that first said it had no idea he was saying something stupid. TC appears to have no clue either.

The TC clearly understands that its a joke - the other guy is taking it too literally
