I still would have liked it to be called the Microsoft NeXuS. They wanted the console to be the center of your entertainment experience after all.


but then they'd lose the xbox branding...

Can you imagine the backlash if they would have called it the XBox720 like everybody was expecting them to?

Just think about it for a second...

Hell no. I could see someone turning that name around and saying, "SuXeN always will" or something like that.

It's a dumb name, really. I would've preferred Xbox Durango.
