I am a PS3 owner and someday hope to be a PS4 owner, yet I am not at all dissatisfied with my choice to delay purchase, solely based on the current PS4 library. When I transitioned from a Playstation 1 to a Playstation 2, I was pleasantly surprised that I could for the most part rid myself of my PS1...

If game journalists stopped calling the new X-Box the XBOX 720. Yeah. It's a lame name. A cheesy one. And I doubt MS will stick with it.

I dont think they legitimately think it'll be called that. It's just a term they use instead of saying, "The next Xbox".

Which would you prefer?

Next Xbox?
Xbox 2?
Xbox 3?

Or something closer to the truth:

Xbox Infinity?
Xbox?
Kinextbox?

Infinity or next XBox works for me. I mean, I could just be in the minority but I always thought 720 was a stupid name and if most indicators point to it not being called that, why stick with such an ugly name? A rose by any other name...

Ahh I'm just nitpicking.

I always liked NextBox or NexBox. How bad will it be if they do end up calling it the 720 though?

I think they missed an opportunity when they called it the Xbox 360 instead of the Xbox 2. I mean "Xbox" is a stupid name in the first place, but numbering products sequentially is kind of tried and true.

Now all you need to do is add an 'edition' in between special and xbox and it'll abbreviate perfectly.
