    Possible names:

Xbox 720 has been the name mostly used since the rumours started appearing but since the offical announcement a lot more have surfaced. Names such as Xbox Infinite, Fusion or Durango have all been speculated.

    Xbox Infinite:

This name would be perfect for a marketing campaign using slogans with the name infinite “Infinte Fun, Infinite Entertainment” and so on.

    Durango:

This name is unlikely to be used as this has been the dev name.

    Xbox Fusion:

This name has been speculated after microsoft purchased the domains XboxFusion.com,XboxFusion.info,XboxFusion.biz,XboxFusion.de,XboxFusion.co.uk. Companies register domains for multiple reason and these purchases wont mean fusion will be the name for the next xbox but could be the name for the rumoured illumiroom.

    Xbox:

Just the word xbox is a possibilty. Xbox have been using the hastag #XboxReveal but why just XBOX and not #NextXboxReveal.

    Final Fantasy Part 12 Season 11 Episode 345 Online

    Am I the only one who questions why there are so many final fantasy game? Is it because of its long running time span which began in 1987. Maybe its because I dont play it. However behind all the prolonged sequels theres a revolutionary RPG.

    Call of Duty a game we love to hate. Theres been 10 major titles in the series but many people argue the franchise should of ended years ago. Many of the previous call of duty have been utter shambles. Over Powered weapons, rip off DLC and maps full of glitches. Today you can still jump out of a certain map on mw3. Hopefully the next game (rumoured call of duty: ghosts) will be an improvement.

    So is a sequel a good game or bad?

    Saints Row IV: My thoughts feelings and predictions on the next saints row game

    When I first fount out there would be a fourth entry to the saints row franchise I was ecstatic. However from watching the trailer I thought “Is this a DLC ?”. Yes there are differences like new weapons for instance the dubstep gun but for true fans of the franchise is the more wacky and wild changes the approach they want for the saints row series. After tough times with bankruptcy THQ had to sell its shares of Volition leaving the developers of saints row 4 worried if they would ever release the game nobody knew existed. The game returns to the streets of steelports with aliens roaming free and the president of ‘merica reaching out to the saints for a helping hand to annihilate the aliens with their almighty powers.
