    MS has registered xboxfusion.com which might be a hint to the new console's name.

    The domain registration is now part of the already registered xboxgold.com & xboxnext.com

    Xbox Fusion sounds uninspiring.

    As far as I'm concerned, it could be named "Xbox Doughnut" as long as it delivers in terms of capabilities, features and hardware. "Super Nintendo Entertainment System" was an idiotic name and it's one of the most memorable systems of all time, "PlayStation" as a name is uninspiring as all hell and it wiped the floor with its competition.

    With no reasoning beyond "because" I am going with this being the name for MS' attempt to continue unifying all its stuff and not the new console.

    I can see MS naming it fusion.
    Exactly like FAST said.
    MS is already attempting to unify everything.

    Sounds like the rumoured peripheral used to enable backwards compatibility, 'Infinity' sounds a lot better anyway.

    A multitude of different types and sources of media. TV, web streaming services, games, music.

    Also the platform for Microsoft, fusing and uniting their mobile product with their desktop product with their set-top box/gaming console product.

    Edit: In terms of both UI style and code that will function on it.

    ^ They should just call it "XBox 8" then if it's just gonna be a premade gaming media center PC that connects to the TV and runs Windows 8. :P

    It sounds like some sort of add-on or backwards compatibility thing.

    They should have called it Sega Fusion instead of MegaDrive/Genesis then. :P

    "Xbox 720: Infinity Infinite Gold 8 Durango edition" Myself. I mean who wouldn't want a X720IIG8D?

    A guy that said something about a new Sonic game (the same one that leaked info about Sonic Generations before) has called it as Xbox Infinite though

    But 12 year olds would have a hard time typing that.
