It’s entirely possible that Microsoft could call it the Xbox 720, but we reckon it’ll have something a bit more exciting up its sleeve.
Noted Microsoft blogger MS Nerd outed the name Xbox Loop, claiming that the long-awaited console will be “far smaller”, cheaper and quite Kinect-focused when it finally lands on our shelves.
Recent reports indicate that Microsoft’s internal codename for the new Xbox is ‘Durango’. Sean Tracy, a technical designer at games developer Crytek,said on Twitter: “Enjoying the Durango developers summit in London. So far, great swag and interesting talks”. The tweet was very quickly taken down but the codename was out of the bag by then.
