Next Xbox to be called ‘Xbox Infinity’... er... ‘Xbox’

We don’t know. Maybe Microsoft doesn’t (yet) either

The next Xbox will be called the Xbox Infinity, if a piccy of an allegedly leaked logo is to be believed.

Or perhaps it’ll just be plain Xbox, as a separate, equally unofficial, just as questionable logo suggests.

The Xbox Infinity - not actually a name, just the word XBOX with an infinity symbol superscript - and the tagline “Infinite entertainment. Infinite possibilities” appeared on Reddit late last week. There’s a wee trademark symbol, ™, on there too, though a check of the US Patent and Trademarks Office database doesn’t list any "Xbox Infinity" trademarks granted - or with the infinity symbol, so far as we can see.

Reddit here first ... To infinity and begone beyond

The second "leak" - according to Forbes magazine made via a Twitter account, though the social network responded with ‘User not found’ when we tried it this morning - simply uses present’s the console’s basic name in lower case with a new ‘x’ logo. Unlike the infinity image, this one is a photo of a presentation slide or poster. For what it’s worth, there’s no trademark symbol attached.

Sticking plaster ... Xbox's other logo possibility from Forbes

Microsoft has already said it will unveil the next-generation Xbox on 21 May, so we have less than a month to find out how what was once talked about as the "Xbox Next" or the "Xbox 720" will actually come to market. That rumoured name never seemed likely, but the two latest suggestions both sound plausible - though they can’t both be right, surely?

Perhaps Microsoft itself doesn’t yet know and is punting options out onto social networks to see which of the pole-hoisted flags most people salute. ®
