    Exclamation Next Gen Xbox Could Be Named Xbox 360?!!

    Possibly someone accidentally spilled the beans...

    Next Gen Xbox Could Be Named Xbox 360
    Friday, February 04 @ 17:10:39 PST

    Engadget has just posted an article claiming the new game console from Microsoft could be called the Xbox 360. It sounds like the source is legit, so the cat is out of the bag.

    Although Microsoft will not be officially announcing their new game console until E3 along with Sony and Nintendo, someone at the company has let the new name slip out into the press. From what we can tell Engadget has the first scoop too. The name "Xbox 360" doesn't sound half bad and probably has some sort of symbolic meaning, but until we know more this is all speculation.

    You can thank Engadget for breaking the story on this one.

    True or not its good enough for me... What do you guys think?...

    360 degrees encompasses all of the angles, so I think that is supposed to have a reference to the home theater. The Xbox will encorporate all facets of home entertainment, or at least that is what they want you to think. It's not bad. I like Xenon better though.

    I really didn't think that Xenon would be the actual launch name. Sounds to much like Intel's Xeon. I don't see why MS would label the future on home entertainment so closely to a current Intel product.
    Xbox 360? It makes sense I suppose in that grand scheme of things. A little weird though for the reason that Shannon said.
    As for the domain name, could be cyber squaters jumping on the leak despite the authenticity in hopes that MS would have to pay them to sell the domain to them.
    It's happened before several times with various big name items. People scour the net for intel and rumors. They buy domain names ahead of time in hopes of making a pay off when the rich owners are forced to buy that domain name back.
    It happened most notably when Gallery Furniture here in Houston announced that they intend to pay to have a NCAA Texas bowl game called Galleryfurniture.com bowl.
    Some people jumped on it and registered the domain before they could and a legal battle embroiled.

    Anyway, who knows? I liked Xbox Next.

    Don't like it much myself, but who cares in a name? :P
    Smart though if you compare it: Xbox 360/ Playstation3. Makes em sound similar

    Xbox Next was teh ball-st0mper of a name. But no, they had to go with a name that implies that the next Xbox will spin.

    buying domain names like that in hopes of getting rich by making legit owners pay for it is called cyber squatting and usually turns up in favor of the real name brand owner and either the person who purchased it to begin with has to just turn over the name for nothing, or they could get sued for any monetary gain they received while owning that domain (revenue generated by a registered trade mark when they didn't own the rights to it.)


    i highly doubt microsoft changes the domain name of its official site, it will probably just be xbox.com and have different areas for each console, etc...

    i heared this over a year ago, i was surveyed by something to do with MS about choosing a name..... xbox 360 was an option, but XBOX2 was the most popular choice...
    they wanted to call it xbox 360 to make it sound superior to PS3, as xbox2 sounds one less than ps3....

    If that's gonna be the name, it better be cricular. That would kick ass, and would give the Xbox even more uses as you could take it outside and play frisbee.
