Giveaway: Name The Next Xbox

new xbox name contest

We’ve long known a new Xbox was in the works and with Sony’s PlayStation 4 unveiling last month it was just a matter of time before Microsoft fired back. Microsoft’s official event is scheduled for May 21 and one of the top questions is what are they going to name the bloody thing? Will it be Xbox 720? NextBox? Xbox Always-On Media Machine 2.0? Speculation is all over the place so we figured we would poll our readers and see what you think the Xbox 360 successor will be named.

In return for you putting on your thinking caps, we will select someone at random to receive 800 Microsoft Points. We’ll be sharing some of our favorite suggestions throughout the week and will select the winner on May 2.
