Post Next Gen Xbox Name Predictions
So there have been many rumored names for the next Xbox. Some say it'll be Xbox Infinity and others say just Xbox. The name Xbox 8 was thrown around as well, and there have been other names too. What's your prediction for the name and why?

Mine is Xbox Infinite. Someone posted details on a new Sonic game called Sonic Excursion. This same person leaked info on Sonix Generations before it was announced. They mentioned multiple platforms for the game including Wii U, PlayStation 4, and... Xbox Infinite. Something similar, Infinity, has been rumored for a while and I felt like that made sense. Plus, the abbreviation of XI looks nice. So I'm going with Xbox Infinite.

Infinite does make sense. It's like the circle keeps on going past 360 degrees... and never stops. I also like the idea of just going with XBox. Sure, it might get confusing for some, but I still think it works. The only other idea I have is maybe XBox Live. It plays on the account system they already have, and it could put the emphasis on sharing while in game. But it is a bit of a stretch, since they use the name already.

Really haven't been looking up or listening for that matter any new Xbox names in the news. So I am coming at it from a perspective of not having any idea of what it will be called. One thing I think might be for sure is that they will leave the "360" numbers title out. No more numbers in the title. Reason being is that I think they want to differentiate themselves this time around. So another "PS4" isn't what I think they are going for.

As for nex gen games, Infinity sounds nice. Xbox Quantum maybe? Like making that "Quantum Leap" into next generation. Lol.

XBox 3 would look good abbreviated as X3. Infinity isn't bad either.

I was hoping it would be Xbox Nextbox. Anyway, Infinity sounds like the car. I hope Loop.

Apparently the Xbox Infinite thing was a fake. Doesn't make it any less possible though, Infinite or Infinity seem pretty plausible.

Infinity doesn't seem like the way they'll go to me. It would work well with Win8, but that also limits their branding of the Windows platform to the 8th edition (and iterations) for that brand continuity to remain. If anything, I'd like to see them go back to basics and just do XBox with a rebranded logo.
