New Xbox called the "Xbox Infinity"?

- calling the Gen 8 X-box a '720' is akin to people calling the gen 7 X-box a Y-box. Remember that? I sure as hell do - and I thought it was equally as stupid back then as I do now.

This topic is terrible. Just call it the poopbox and I'll buy it as long as it's good. But i'll probably buy it anyway. What are you all going to do when the next console comes out. The 360 will die and then what do you do? Never buy new games again? Face it, you didn't get the wii u, your getting the next sony console or microsoft console.

Nearly every topic concerning rumours/speculation on the gen 8 xbox is terrible.

So it is going to be a cable box after all. Lame.

Skip a Number and call it Xbox4.

Cool names died when Sega went belly up as a console maker.

If it's going to be "Xbox Infinity" which is really close to Comcast - Xfinity. What will the next console be called after this coming generation? Infinity+1?

I think the biggest issue with the name is that it's not easy to type. The infinity symbol isn't on most keyboard layouts (and, it turns out, isn't supported by GameFAQs), and most people don't dig into the Character Map on their computers. Call it "Xbox [Infinity symbol]" and Microsoft would just end up with people calling it "Xbox Infinity", "Xbox Infinite", "the new Xbox", "Xbox", and so on - really weak branding.

Xbox Aleph One.
