Xbox One Balanced Premium



Whoever said life to be like a box of chocolates clearly didn't know what he was talking about. 

Life is more like a game of bumper cars. At every turn there is a possibility you will get screwed.

That would confuse people into thinking its a new gen.  (remember the "Wii" "WiiU" issue, of people getting things mixed up?)

You cant not have "Xbox One + name" in it imo.... unless MS really are planning to forget about the Xbox One, and start a new gen.

In which case, Xbox Two makes so much more sense than XBOX 10 does.



Xbox  "maybe this time"

XBOX 10 = Xbox + Windows 10

:P

I get that... still think its a bad name.

I think either you do really differnt names, gen to gen, like Nintendo does (exception being wii -> wii U)

Or you use numbers correctly.

That means if you have "One", the next is "Two".

Xbox, the good One



Xbox One Elite or Xbox Elite most likely. Microsoft will keep going with their naming scheme I believe which is a good one :)

Xbox -> Xbox 360 -> Xbox One, is a good naming scheme?

I hope they just settle for One -> Two -> Three ect ect ect.

Build their brand name up.

I honestly hope Nintendo learn and do something simularly.

It seems like some people are under the impression MS is aiming for "half gen" update with this.
I don't think that squares with their messaging at all, this will not be Xbone Pro/1.5/etc.
What they've said is that Scorpion will be the beginning of "no generations" / continual update.
That means they plan for Scorpion Pro/1.5/etc. Otherwise, Xbone would be first of "no gen" sequence.
That doesn't mean there can't be BW-compatabilty, after all that has existed with previous consoles.
With Scorpion, they're not aiming to have simple to dev for "update" of Xbone ala PS4/Pro.
Which would imply retaining CPU and memory model of Xbone, which stat rumors don't bear out.
Sony may not have had Zen option, but certainly had Puma+ on table, and declined for ease of devs (not $).
I think the similarities between MS and Sony PR has confused the issue to some extent.
And to some extent it doesn't matter, however you want to spin it or flavor it,
there will just be different power levels of consoles with varying levels of compatability.

That "no generation" thing is nonsense. They would need unlimited forwards compatibility.

Well it is not impossible and more important gamers would love it...
