Next Gen Xbox to be Called Xbox 8?

July 5, 2012 2 Comments

The codename for the next xbox even internally has been Xbox 720. Now we all know that when the hardware eventually comes out that the name will be changed but to Xbox 8? Recently Microsoft obtained a few new domains through the National Arbitration Forum, where it won the rights to a series of Xbox-related domain names formerly owned by Cheng Juan of China. Some of the domain names were  xboxcompanion.com, xboxlivetv.com, xboxphone.com, and xboxtablet.com but also included were xbox8.org and xbox8.us.

So will it be Xbox 8? Well it makes sense since Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 are launching later this year but I honestly think its Microsoft just making sure that they have everything covered just in case.

What do you guys think? Would the name Xbox 8 work?
