It was so sleek and nice-looking and then with the latest UI update it's all so flat and full of ads.


Fixed that for you. :pinch:

If they go with the infinity name, how will the url look? Probably the infinity sign on it's side (a no. 8!)seeing as that's the only way that they could do it. (and they'll registerer the full word too)

Xbox infinity to me would be like vista when they were in their non numbered scheme.

I hope they go to xbox8 just so it matches up with windows/windowsphone. Or even just "Xbox" and update the core OS with versions so they would stay in sync with windows (and leverage the model that way).

What's wrong with Xbox.com?

Nothing but assuming they do use the infinity name, they will likely have a pre release site and after release, the same url would forward to xbox.com

Was that sarcasm? Or did you really not link the number 8 to Microsoft's other upcoming products? ;)

LOL I really hope you're joking... That's the first thing crossing my mind.

I didn't stop to think about it at all. I just saw what Microsoft had done, then read the thread. That's why :)

Regardless of what it's officially called, everyone will just call it "Xbox" anyway

This.

So, lemee get this straight: Just like Windows 6.1 is Windows 7 & Windows 6.2 is Windows 8, Xbox 3 is gonna be Xbox 8? Microsoft needs to learn to count...
