Microsoft Narrowing Down Xbox Successor

Not to be outdone by Nintendo's oddball selection of potential initials for its upcoming DS handheld, Microsoft has reportedly circulated some proposed names for its next game console. A study lately conducted by the SPSS research firm, received by a great many gamers and 1UP readers around the web, seeks to gather data on Microsoft's behalf regarding which of several names might be the right one for the next Xbox. Some of the monikers mentioned in the survey as "being considered for the next-generation Xbox" are: Xbox 247 Xbox 360 Xbox 2 Xbox E Xbox EV Xbox FS Xbox HD Xbox NE Other questions evidently focus more specifically on the "Xbox FS" name, which lends itself to a certain amount of droll speculation regarding what "FS" might stand for ("Free Style," "Full Spectrum," "Fleet Sturgeon," or perhaps "Fo' Shizzle"). Some reports claim that the interactive survey includes an image of a proposed Xbox FS logo, although that's not confirmed as yet. Conventional wisdom predicts that Microsoft is looking to kick off the next-generation hardware race soon, perhaps as early as the 2005 holidays. If it's operating on such a compressed schedule, critical marketing details such as names and logos will certainly have to be nailed down fairly soon. As yet, though, any of the above names have to be considered tentative at best. We'll look out for more details as soon as Microsoft has more to say on the subject.
