What makes you think the Xbox One will be profitable enough to justify a successor?


Going by that logic, the 360 should never have been released. The Xbox division of Microsoft lost money every period until after the 360 launched.

Apparently they like starting things over for the Xbox. 360 was named apparently as a redo to the Xbox and now they named this one the Xbox One. The next one will probably be a name similar like Xbox Zero or Xbox Restart or Xbox 180.

I'm almost certain the next one will be called Xbox Infinite.

After that, I have no idea.

Nah, they would've screwed themselves if they named it Xbox Infinity. That woulda meant it'd be their last console. And it's not like they were naming the console in any sort of order to begin with. 360 was a degree, that mean it revolved around you or whatever, One stands for All-in-One, and I'm sure they'll come up with something in like 7 years or so.


If they named it Xbox Infinity, the next one would have been Xbox Beyond


Haha, this post wins.

If Square Soft can get away with Final Fantasy 4 being Final Fantasy 2 in America and FF6 being FF3 and then randomly jumping to Final Fantasy 7, I'm POSITIVE that people won't get confused about

Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One.

They will go two generations back and just write the number in letters.
Next one will be based on the 360.
