I really thought they’d go on with the whole degree thing and call it the Xbox 720 or something.
Yeah, they really can’t go on with that pattern for long, but calling the third Xbox “Xbox One” isn’t exactly the next best thing either.
My reaction to the name was this:
I mean, I treat the 2001 Xbox as “Xbox 1”, 2006 Xbox as “Xbox 2” and 2013 Xbox as “wow that was really dumb”.
I preferred the rumormill name “Xbox NEXT” but that’s just because it at least implied forward locomotion
