[QUOTE="rasengan2552"] Mods getting butthurt over comments ? now I've seen it all, and you're playing sales as well ... lemmoderator.verbtex

Just because we are mods doesn't mean we have to be completely neutral. As long as we aren't moderating unfairly, we can have a preference. I try to be as neutral as possible, but I have to admit, I DO have a console preference.

at least you are up front about it

That's fair, I think everyone has a prefrence towards one console or another. It's not wrong either as long as you don't act like your preference is better.

However old TOU there were definately mods that suspended people because they disagreed with them.

I've never hidden the fact that I enjoy gaming on the 360. Everybody's got their own preferences and have never questioned other peoples choices, be that for Wii, PS3, or PC.

But that isn't even the point. I intentionally made a silly comment to illustrate how silly the comment is that I was responding to, one that in 2012 brings up an outdated issue. Like I said, it's called satire, and it uses exageration to get a point across. I don't give a damn about any system sales, be that PS3, X360, or Wii. That was never really the point.

C'mon guys, do I really have to draw this on a blackboard for you? :|

Please oh please oh please.

I like pictures. :D.

Anyways, back on topic, Xbox 8 does sound kind of lame, but for a code name it might be alright. Hopefully they come up with something better.

I actually went over how every system had a code name while the product was still in its development stages. There's no way to expect the final name to be Xbox 8 or Xbox 720.

It wouldn't surprise me if they really named it something like that considering how they named the "360". Evn tho it would make zero sense (like there were already 7 Xboxes or something).

#-43 Posted by nameless12345 (15125 posts) -

Lol people care? Video game consoles have always had stupid ass names. Playstation Vita Wii Wii-U 360 Nintendo 64AcidSoldner

N64 wasn't a stupid name. It was a reference to it's 64-bit processor. And Wii might sound silly but it worked with it's target audience (easy to pronounce, memorable, simple).

#-42 Posted by RR360DD (11956 posts) -

Yeah the PS4 is fuked. Who will buy a 4 when theres a 8 on the market?

Oh yeah, forgot there were 63 nintendos before the N64.

Whatever it's called I hope it brings a bunch of fun games and not a bunch of boring shooters.

N64 had a 64-bit CPU. What did 360 have? A circulaur button? Still doesn't really quite make sense.

8 > 4.

Nintendo took one aspect of the console and incorporated it into the name. Microsoft done the same. The 360 (circle) represents the unified, fully intergrated service the X360 offers. Thats been their mission statement all gen.

Not saying I think this rumour is true, but if they are fully integrating Win 8, Win Phone 8 and the next Xbox then calling it 8 as well doesn't seem so silly.

And I thought Wii U was bad.

X-box 8, that is so wrong ! And running win8, i'll pass !!!

#-33 Posted by PraetorianMan (1338 posts) -

Well, better than "Kinectbox" that I thought it would be called.

You're looking at it too literally. It was more of a thematic idea; the console being at the center of 360 degrees of entertainment - games, movies, music, and being able to share that entertainment exprience with your friends from anywhere around you, via the social infrastructure.

And why are people still commenting like Xbox 8 will be the final product name? :|

Unreal Engine 4? There better be a motherf*cking good Unreal Tournament iteration.

This name makes about as much sense as the Xbox 360 did, so obviously, this is bound to be true.charizard1605

"360" was how some people called the "The Home Computer Revolution",when PC became more than just tools for calculations and business. And in this case Xbox 360 meant a shake up, a new focus to gaming, a revolution... The online gaming era was what they brought. DLC, online multiplayers, video streaming to consoles, etc....

I know about it because I studied it in Introduction to Computer Science like 5 years ago, this is the first class you take when you start a degree on Computer Science and you learn about computer history, Ada Lovelace (the first programmer was a woman)and stuff.

that's a fierce number, scares PS triple fans

#-25 Posted by taterfrickintot (2851 posts) -

not a bad name in my opinion. it will obviously run an OS similar to windows 8 and will be compatible with windows 8 devices, and it will be the 8th console gen, so its not a bad idea at all IMO. a lot better than wii u.

Well, that's one way to dodge the Curse of the Third Console.

Who knows? I always think console names are bad until I become familiar enough with them. GameCube, Wii, Xbox 360, all sounded horrible to me at first.
#-18 Posted by ShadowsDemon (10136 posts) -
lol. I bet it's going to try and run with Windows 8 as well. :lol:

Why is Nintendo afraid of Xbox? Cause Xbox 8 PlayStation....

#-13 Posted by Evz0rz (4624 posts) -

That's real dumb. I'm expecting Xbox Infinity, it sounds good and it isn't completely stupid.

Phoenix534
The problem with that is where would you take it after that for the next console? Beyond?
#-12 Posted by tubbyc (3749 posts) -

Somehow, I really like that. It would be something unexpected but straight-forward. It's probably just a code name though.

#-11 Posted by l34052 (3201 posts) -

Who cares what the thing is called aslong as it works well, has good games and is a good price:roll:

Just because we are mods doesn't mean we have to be completely neutral. As long as we aren't moderating unfairly, we can have a preference. I try to be as neutral as possible, but I have to admit, I DO have a console preference.

at least you are up front about it

untill you start saying the mods are biased which you already have. then its the your the evil.

It makes sense from a cohesiveness perspective if it will run Windows 8 metro and allow you to run apps/games designed for Windows 8 phone and Windows 8 desktop.
#-6 Posted by DeadMan1290 (15502 posts) -

Xbox 8 maybe because of it's going to run on Windows 8? Seems like the most logical explanation...

#-5 Posted by BIOKILLER123 (576 posts) -

The name sounds fine to me. It's most likely a placeholder name.

#-4 Posted by brennanhuff (990 posts) -

I think it's alright if it launches with Windows 8. The only name that I ever thought was kind of lame is the Wii.

So M$ is going to sell lems Windows 8 with a cheap computer and call it Xbox? Seems the kind of crap idiot lems love to fall for.
#-2 Posted by NaveedLife (17179 posts) -

Lol. Consoles noobs. They're next OS for the PC is Windows 8 so the Xbox 8 makes sense.

Zophar87

It makes no sense at all. It is as bad as Apples Iphone naming.
