We have a rumour which states that Microsoft’s next Xbox could be called Xbox 8. Now this makes sense for a lot of reasons, because of Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. It’s only natural that Xbox 8 could be a valid name for Microsoft to apply to their next Xbox.
It’s all a rumour and that too from a site called thisismyXbox, which states that “the alpha forms of the next-generation Xbox console which could be named “XBOX 8″ – not 8 because it’s the eighth Xbox, but because it’s the eighth generation home console and heavily shares the same software as upcoming Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.”
Anybody could come up with this rumour, though. So take this with a pinch of salt. I wouldn’t be surprised if Microsoft really names it the Xbox 8, because that would be simply a logical thing to do.
