Xbox Infinity may stun world at May 21 event

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.

Why are people complaining about backwards comparability?
Who plays old Xbox games? Technology moves forward so just enjoy the better gameplay and graphics, if it bothers you that much keep your 360 locked in a cupboard for when you do want to play and old game.
There will still be games made for 360 anyway for a good few years to come.

I’m wanting Xbox and always have. It’s not all about exclusives even though I’m a die hard halo fan. Firstly the controller is better on Xbox, with ps I feel like I’m going to crush the thing. I just get a better experience with the Xbox controller. Most important to me however is the online experience. Xbox has in my opinion has always been better. I don’t care if I necessarily pay, everything is better and easier, although this is based on the current consoles. Microsoft isn’t stupid though, I hope that they realize that they need to listen and… Read more »

Any true gamer will choose the system that offers the best selection in games over the lifespan of the system, not just the first few years of the system’s life. What exclusives do Xbox fans get for 2013? Gears of War: Judgment. What exclusives do Playstation owners get for 2013? God of War: Ascension, The Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, Ni no Kuni, Until Dawn, Gran Turismo 6, Diablo III, Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection, MLB 13: The Show, Dust 514, and Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. Add in the Uncharted, Little Big Planet, inFamous, Killzone, Resistance, Ratchet… Read more »

Don’t care too much about the name. Pretty annoyed by the fact that neither the new MS nor the Sony products will be backwards compatable. A harsh slap in the face to loyal followers. Also don’t want to end up seeing a controller with a touchscreen on it. I don’t want a WiiU

The name isnt my main concern. As a hardcore gamer all i want is for ms to give us new hardcore ip’s. If the last 3 & a half years with bs kinect games is all they have to offer its current 360 users then I know how they will continue to do more of the same with the xbox infinity. I think sony’s ps4 sounds like a hardcore gamers dream console but also appealing to all audiences since it should launch at a competitive price. Im leaning more towards a ps4 before the xbox infinity.

Dont care what its called as long as they don’t just show the controller or the cables and nothing else.

Wii U without EA Frostbite 3 juggernauts, Star Wars
