X would be great, but Bill Gates is too big of a nerd to give it a name like X.

Definately X2!

Sux MS won't be buying Sega. They should based on two reasons:

1) All Sega games will be exclusive to XBox

2) EA can't destroy any good Sega games

Well, I am hoping that it has Xbox somewhere in the name, otherwise our website is screwed. I'd have to go with... Generation X... wait, that is too played out. Generation Xbox Next? Ehh... too Pepsi. I guess I will stick with x^2

El Xboxo dos. Hrmmm I guess I don't have an opinion, I'd buy it if it was called Steaming Hot Pile of Crap.

I don't think Bill Gates cares what we want the Next version of XBox to be called and I bet you they will being calling it XBoxNext.

Yeah... that was a little out there Knight. Most people who sign up and leave do it from people being too critical and not welcoming to them... for instance, lets say someone came on and said something like... oh... I don't know..

One of the things you could say after that to make them feel unwelcome might be

A good thing to say would have been

Hey Youko! Welcome to XBA! Good point with the Xmen 2 movie, but I think it would be more like Xbox 2 would be the official name and it would be unofficially abbreiveated as x2.

Oh, and by the way:

That was the first post of his I've ever read. And if I remember correctly at the very bottom I said something to the tune of 'Hey Youko! Welcome to XBA!' I really can't welcome him any quicker than that unless I can manage to improve my esp skills and start prediction people joining the boards.

I think id stick with X^2. X squared is just a cool name for the neXt incarnation of the console.

I think it should be called *Microsofts X Squared*. It sounds like a cool as-s name to me.

Oh, and for the billionth time, I would like to point out that the only affiliation Bill Gates has with the Xbox is that he is a mascot. He has nothing to do with the development or prouduction of Microsoft Hardware. He is only part of the Software/OS development team.

x^2 is really cool. Xbox 2 or Xbox Next just don't appeal to me and seem to stupid. Ideally I'd like to see it be called something totally different from Xbox.

Hey, there's always the chance it could be called the YBox ;)

I like what Nintendo did with Gamecube. They didn't just call it Nintendo 4. Id like some thing just out there and away from "X" Like uh.. "The Platform" or something cool that I can't think of. I don't like the whole 1 2 3 crap.

Other: Xn ( x to the nth power)
hey billy might even like it, since n could be next.

or maybe Xactly
or XXX
or Xecute
or get this


THE ONE!

ha, But i like the first one. I here by clan the title Xn as a personal trademark. Thereby locking me into power, fame and money along with billys new toy.\

That n should be up high like the 2 in X2

Personally, I think Xbox 2 sounds fine..X2 sounds pretty cool, but does kind of sound..eh, wierd because of the Xman movie

Hm..how about..Xed or something..I dunno, lol. I don't really care what they name is..as long as they deliver.:)

I had thought of the xbox sqared thing or X2 because the next xbox will maybe have double the power of the first one and it is quick to say but xbox next just isn't catchy or glamourous whatever it just isn't that good. Or maybe they could do something like TNX for THE NEXT XBOX. Copy of ps2 playstation2. Like make something short and catchy.

I'd have to go with TPOSBTTPYVG, or, The Piece of **** Box Thingy That Plays Your Video Games. A couple others would be, Viagra(Bill could afford to buy the name and have them change it to PES or something), "The Rocket", Wormhole, Kill Yourself, "The Goat", X Rated, Microsoft ****mobile.

I agree totally, I don't think it should have anything to do with Xbox at all

I like the X-Squared sound...but, what happens when the third XBox comes out? What are they going to call it...X-Cubed?!?!? :yikes: Why does that frighten me!? :D hehe

Personally, I like XBox Next in that case :D

I don't like any of them, so I voted "other"

I think it should be called "Deuce X"

How about the X-sphere...

"We present the most disfunctionally-shaped console ever made! After done playing video games with it you can roll it around; actually play basketball, soccer, or volleyball; or just throw it at things!"

I can see the possibilities rising...

Call it the "Crack Dispenser".

Mmmmmmmmmmm.....crack.

Wait, what drug is the media exploiting these days.

Meth....yes.

Call it the "Meth Machine". Eminem could be a spokesman.
