Default Xbox 360 to be revealed

For those who dont know, the unveiling is on MTV today, be sure to tune in, it should be interesting to see what Microsoft's throwing at us with their next generation console this time around.

I hate the name. Xbox 360? Thats just lame. Why not Xbox 2. That's much more original. Or Ybox. Or Y Sphere. That'd be bad assed.

Well, the reason they didn't use Xbox 2 is they didn't want to appear less "up to date" than Sony. I mean brand tactics, if a mother who's completely uneducated on gaming goes into a store to buy a system for her son and sees "Playstation 3" and "Xbox 2", in most cases, she's going with the PS3 because it just seems more "new and up to date", and she has no idea about gaming anyway. I agree though, there are plenty of better names they could've taken. Xbox 360 definitely isn't the worst name otu there, but it could've been better, no doubt.
