The problem is for a name that's stupid. Basically 360 means revolution, what does 720 mean? Nothing. By that logic should the PS4 be called the PS6 instead? PS3+PS3=PS6. Windows 8 should have been Windows 14 I guess. It was an idiotic idea and it's not going to happen, time to let it go.


To be fair, nothing makes sense for the 360 successor name until Microsoft names it themselves. I fail to see how the name "720" is any worse than the other code names Microsoft has come up with over the years (or even actual release names for that matter). At least from a gamer standpoint of someone who might have enjoyed the hell out of Tony Hawk games growing up, 720 still makes sense being another full rotation. If you want to get all mathy about it, chances are you're thinking way too hard on something that's completely irrelevant anyway. :ermm:

We could have called it Delta after all.

Xbox Fusion sounds more like a service of some kind than a console, I think that's more likely.

I like the name Fusion but they really need to stick to some standardization.
Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox Fusion, Xbox <insert-something-else>

there's no logical progression.
Also, in a way, kind of hate the way all these bits of info come out - leaving no 'mystery' ...now it's 'yeah, well, it'll most likely be called fusion' </grumpy>

Yeah it's the battle Nintendo/MS will face each gen, thinking of a name. Wii U is atrocious. Sony made it safe and easy on themselves, and quite literally even the 'dumbest' of consumers know how to differentiate old from new. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.

Infinity reminds me of a car, fusion sounds more like a service and/or energy drink. I think MS might be playing on the idea of 'fusing' though, like fusing media/games/TV into one box.

I don't really care what the name is so long as the branding concepts are as good as the 360's.

It's not bad, though I also preferred the Infinity name that was rumored like others mentioned though Fusion isn't that bad and somewhat makes sense with what they seem to be wanting to do with it. Once they start marketing it then it won't matter at all anymore and everyone will get used to it (much like they did with the Wii). Though it's clearly evident someone at MS likes American cars :p

PSP, PSP Go, PS Vita...Sony is in the same mess.
