You know that the Xbox 720 moniker was always going to be a long shot right? While Microsoft’s next Xbox console is officially known as Durango internally, speculation is now mounting that the final name of the console will end up known as Xbox ‘Infinity’. It has a great ring to it we feel and we now have another glimpse at the logo which we may be seeing at the May 21st Xbox event.
If you are a regular Reddit lurker, you may have seen a post two weeks ago, which revealed the image you see above, as the next Xbox design and moniker. Many gamers treated the Xbox Infinity name as just another rumor, but now there’s further evidence that it could be true.
A report published by the IBTimes claims that their sources have also told them that the next Xbox is also going to be called Xbox Infinity. Microsoft are apparently going to be using the slogan, ‘Infinite entertainment, Infinite possibilities’ to market the next console and May 21 could be when we will all see this logo flashed across the big screen.
Without actually using the words infinite, Microsoft may instead be using the logo that symbolizes the infinite meaning – a logo that you would usually see as a fighting game time limit setting, for example. We think it looks great – simple, attractive and straight to the point.
It’s definitely better than Xbox ’720′ and indeed other rumored names such as Ten, Loop or even Fusion, which doesn’t match at all. Microsoft has traditionally decided against commenting on what they deem as rumor and speculation, but all will be revealed in just under 10 days time at Microsoft’s event.
What are your thoughts on this – are you digging the Xbox Infinity name or hoping for something else? More details on this developing story as we get it.
