7. What's it called?
It's tricky to discuss something when nobody knows what to call the damn thing. "Xbox 720" was the go-to title for a while, because hey, 360 x 2 = 720. The console's codename is said to be "Durango," a moniker that certainly won't stick for the official release. In an apparent attempt to avoid calling it the "next Xbox" over and over again, rumors of various one-word suffixes spread like flame during a brushfire. Loop, Kryptos, Fusion, Fusible, Infinity, plain ol' Xbox--there are enough unsubstantiated names out there to make the casual gamer's head spin.
Our best guess? We've put our chips on the Xbox Infinity side of the table. Why? Beyond an official, unqualified trademark application, no good reason, really. Still, it's something. If recent, unofficial, totally fake mockups are any indication, it seems like the masses have--until the 21st, at least--made up their collective minds on what to call the next Xbox.
