The 360 in Xbox 360 should not be treated as an integer and therefore should not be doubled to make 720.

No, but I remember when the Playstation 2 was called the playstation 2, and the playstation 3 was called the playstation 3.

Calling it the xbox 3 is just as arbitrary and hypocritical as being angry that people are dubbing it the xbox 720. The Xbox 360 wasn't called the Xbox "2". I'm not saying that dubbing it the "720" isn't stupid, I'm just pointing out that raging at people for calling it the 720 is just as silly as suggesting that people should call it the xbox 3. How about xbox 360 successor...? Then you can get mad at people all you want for calling it the 720 and still sound rational.

Anyhoo, on topic, as was said before, people can claim all they want about hypothetical performance. Since we have yet to even hear of an official announcement of a successor, or even choices of hardware paths, it's all pretty irrelevant.

Says the guy whose username is "guyladouche".

You see, perhaps you were just too young at the time, but back in 2004/2005, the 360 WAS called Xbox 2, mainly by the press apparently; I remember seeing that countless times on EGM, and even Microsoft said it before.

Sure, "Xbox 360 successor" is correct, I totally agree with that. I'm just saying that Xbox 3 makes more sense than Xbox 720.

If people can't say something better, like "Xbox 360 successor" or "next Xbox", then I'll settle for something "less worse".

But Xbox 720 is totally stupid.

You don't get it. If 360 is a string, you can't double it.

Xbox 360 is a trademarked name, it is not 360 as in the number.

Xbox 3 is not stupid as IT IS THE THIRD XBOX, XBOX VERSION 3. Yes it probably won't be called that, but we don't know what it's going to be called, we just know it's going to be the 3rd Xbox.

If you can't see how calling it Xbox 3 is more suitable than Xbox 720, you must lack common sense and I probably won't be able to explain to you why as you simply aren't smart enough to understand.

But Xbox 360 is obviously 120 times better then the Xbox 3

Well, not that I agree with it, but to use your own argument against you, clearly the "press" is referring to the next successor as the xbox 720--says so in their article title. So I guess that's what we all should be calling it...

You're right, I don't "get" how one arbitrary choice for labeling the successor is fine, but another arbitrary choice for labeling it is SO offensive and "stupid" while neither arbitrary choices for numerical labeling are correlated to the official title of the predecessor. They're both wrong, and neither is more correct than the other.
