Just Guess What The New Xbox Might Be Called Now
We’ve heard lots and lots of rumours about what Microsoft’s next Xbox will be called. From the awful jump from Xbox 360 to Xbox 720, as well as the equally awful Xbox Durango, nothing really seems to catch the attention of hopeful next-generation Xbox owners. And to be honest, that hasn’t really changed this new rumoured title.
According to the International Business Times in the UK, the next Xbox will apparently be called Infinity. Yes, Xbox Infinity, like that chewing gum that lies to its consumers. These reports are somewhat backed up by an image that leaked on Reddit a few days ago, which also suggested that the new Xbox would carry the title of Infinity.

Now, it’s far better than 720 or Durango in my opinion, but here’s why it’s still not hitting the mark. Firstly, the suggested slogan in the picture immediately makes too many promises. Infinite Possibilities, let’s be real Microsoft, we’re not all stupid you know. That’s not exactly my biggest concern though. The real reason behind my hatred for the name is its length. I don’t want to have to be typing out Infinity every time I talk about the new Xbox for the foreseeable future. Don’t you care about the little guys Microsoft?
But seriously, what’s wrong with simplicity. Sony has been getting away with it for years, and it works perfectly. A name should be short and concise enough to bring up easily in conversation without people looking at you funny when they don’t know what they hell you’re talking about. If you say “PS4”, people immediately know what you’re talking about, as opposed to “Oh, Xbox Infinity”. Even I would stare at you.
Keep it simple, stupid. Heard of that principle Microsoft?
