Rumor Has It: NextBox May Have a Name Finally
See, the funny thing about the Intert00bZ is that it makes it really hard to keep things a secret.
The rumors are flying fast and loose with the news that Microsoft is squatting on a bunch of web domains featuring the word “XBox” and the word “Fusion,” including amongst them XBoxFusion.com, .info, .biz, and .co.uk. Now, what the Fusion exactly is poses the mystery. It could be a renamed peripheral, such as the newly-unveiled IllumiRoom or a new version of Kinect, but many are speculating that “XBox Fusion” will be the long-awaited name of the NextBox 720 Durango Project. Calling the NextBox “Fusion” also ties in with their overpowering statement in last year’s E3 conference of becoming a “total entertainment center.”
Microsoft’s May 21 event may have the answers gamers seek to this and many other NextBox issues… or may be just a big giant tease until E3’13.
