Poll Results: What Will Microsoft Call its Next Console

May 13, 2013 -

Last week we asked you to guess what Microsoft might name its next console. From five choices, a clear majority of you took the "joke" option, saying that the Next Xbox console would be called "Xbox Steve." Some of you may have thought this option referred to Microsoft's Steve Ballmer, or perhaps you thought it was an homage to the Minecraft character of the same name. Whatever the reason, 40 percent of the votes (169 votes) decided that "Xbox Steve" was the best choice.

Twenty-Five percent of the votes (107 votes) went to Xbox 720; 21 percent (89 votes) believe it will be called Xbox Fusion; four percent (18 votes) backed the Xbox Durango option; and 20 percent (42 votes) backed the "other" option but didn't send in any suggestions. Another name that is rumored right now is "Xbox Infinity" but that name was revealed well after we launched our poll.

Andrew and EZK discuss this poll at length in Episode 51 of the Super Podcast Action Committee.

The official name for the next XBox is... (drum roll please) ... XBox One. The all-in-one entertainment console.

The Xbox DRM-always-on-not-backward-compatible-big brother-enabled-Fanboy-Killer.

Yes, I know that contains some now refuted rumors, I went with it anyway.

If you could have had two polls the other should have been to see what people really think Microsoft will call it. I'm curious as to what people are actually expecting Microsoft to do this time around.

Re: Poll Results: What Will Microsoft Call its Next Console

I wrestled with "what should it call the next console" versus "what will it call the next console" for the better part of a day.  Ultimately, we went with "should" because we thought it would be more fun.
