It will just be called the Xbox, anything else would be dumb.

I think they should call it the Xbox 420 for marketing purposes. Big hit with baked teenagers and frat boys, their core demographic if XBL is anything to be believed.

Along the same lines, PS4 will most likely be called the Playstation Orbis. Name fits.
OH C'MON you gotta admit, while you might get killed alot more and you k:d ratio might go down gaming is just so much more fun while baked.

Most all console names were dumb.
Nintendo is a dumb name, especially back in the 80's. Neo Geo was a dumb name. Playstation sounds like a kids play area.
Saturn was an ok name, Dreamcast is kinda ok i guess.

Turbo Grafx 16...now there was a self marketing name that spoke raw power to the consumer. Unfortunately the games for it were not and that folks is the only thing that matters for a console.
I want to make a console called Voodoo Grafx...oh wait.

I have raged over the lack of football games on PC for years. EA sucks with their exclusive license crap, i don't see the big deal to license out the NFL to other devs for a platform they don't even offer a Madden on.
I can only imagine how good Madden would look on PC if they used Frostbite 2

the problem with exdeath is that he looks at 3 AAA series that are all shooters and conveniently ignores all of the other games.

But those 3 AAA titles sell more than most of those other games combined. >_>

The problem I have isn't necessarily with those games, so much as these other games you speak of try to appeal to the lowest common denominator base that eat up those 3.

I'd love to play Resident Evil and not Call of Gears of Evil. Or Final Fantasy and not Call of Fantasy : Final Duty XIII-3 Pink Ops Edition.

I was wrong for favoring my 360 over my PS3. There is much more variety in games on the PS3. Ni no Kuni was incredible and I already have both Suvivor and Post Pandemic editions of The Last of Us on pre order along with Tales of Xillia

What's coming out on 360 at the same time? Oh look ANOTHER Gears of War /wank wank

So yeah Shooterbox would be perfect. Or as someone else said, BroBox.

it's just amusing that you complain post after post yet. i agree ps3 has much better exclusives. im enjoying sly cooper right now.

360 is my multiplayer console, ps3 is my single player console for exclusives only though. games like tomb raider and dead space 3 will always get played on 360 though because the controller is a million times better.

It's not only that, but more their effect. Their ripple.

Other game companies and owners of lesser-known, less popular IPs, try and emulate the success of CoD and shooters like it by shoe-horning gameplay/story-telling/etc aspects of those games into theirs, whether they fit, work, or belong or not.

I don't blame anyone for that success, save for the uninspired, greedy studios looking to make a quick buck off of trying to knock off CoD.

It is what it is. But for some people to assume that the continued success of games like CoD do not have any real, meaningful impact on other games inside and outside of the genre is simply naive and shortsighted.

still doesn't mean there aren't good games out there though. but instead of playing them he likes to bitch about the industry as if bitching about it is going to change anything. all you have to do is look at all of his posts in any thread outside of the mila kunis game thread.

and i agree with you that some games have changed direction, but honestly the only ones i can think of are capcom games - devil may cry and resident evil. but it's pretty much a known fact that capcom is 100% all about the money and simply caters to the masses.

i guess mgs has also changed but those games have sucked for a long time anyways.

still tons and tons of great games out there though. but instead of playing them lets just bitch about COD and HALO instead!

Wasn't bitching here, I stated a perfect name for the next Xbox and gave justification for it.

ShooterBox is perfect.

Other games are too far and few and don't get the shelf space or promotion that every monthly shooter, sports, or racing rehash gets.

Heh Xbox M4 would be fitting...

Shape it like an M4 too and the target audience not old enough to afford or buy a real M4 would cream themselves.

sorry but i don't need games to be promoted and told what i should like in order to know what i like. i can't even remember the last time i actually looked for games on a shelf in a store when i went to purchase a game. probably been over a decade.

Us? No. But everyone else who buys what's popular? Be nice to seed some variety and break out of this stale and safe rut we are in.

They should call it the Xbox 720 because games will actually run in 720p this time!!

Man, I am glad that I can enjoy both consoles and don't have to get my panties in a bunch when someone points out a flaw about one of them.
