So what will the next Xbox really be called?

I'm thinking Xbox 3, Xbox Entertainment System, or just a simple return to "Xbox" like the iPad went from iPad 2 to iPad again.

Sorry. I really can see them going with it, though, which is a bit sad. I also don't want to give away all my awesome console names, because I'm going to use them in the future, and everyone will be jealous.

I think they should ditch the Xbox name altogether. The original was kinda like a box and kinda had an X through it, but what do we have now? Some bland computer tower looking thing.

*shrug* i never disliked the dev names. Durango is fine by me(I frown on console though, You get better graphics, framerates, while keeping your controller and rumble on pc, Then theres mods and other things you can do to your games.)

Dev names are the worst. Orbis? Durango? NATAL?

Natal is one of the worst ever.

So, while I was working. I thought of Xbox Connect, but that's stupid and they already have the Kinect. Then I thought of "Connex." Unfortunately, those are magnetic building toys I played with. So, now I'm stuck. I have a feeling Microsoft is going to use a word to show how much people can share with while using their system. All these apps and social networks connecting together, Microsoft is bound to use a word or create one of their own to dealing with that basis. So how about Xbox: Sistema de Connect? How about the Trans-Box?

It's definitely going to be the Windows 8 Box.
