Next Xbox may be called: "Xbox Fusion"

    • Level   3

    "Recently, a reliable source that is very close to the gaming industry leaked Dual Pixels some very interesting information. This leak includes many things, but two in particular really stuck out. Two series of the Ubisoft cabinet will re-emerge on both the future Xbox and Wii consoles which are Splinter Cell: Next-Gen, Assassin's Creed 3 for the Wii U.

    About 7 months ago(give or take) Microsoft filed three trademarks. One being the word/phrase "Fusion", and the two others having to do with the word fusion. It is suspected that the reason behind the three trademarks will be the new Xbox, the "Xbox Fusion".

    Splinter Cell is a series of stealth video games. The first game was released in 2002. The main character, Sam Fisher, is a highly trained black ops agent in a made up sub-division of black ops named NSA. The point in the game is to complete the objectives and be as discrete as possible, whether it is hiding, taking unknown routes, or making diversions for guards. This game was also used as a marketing tool when made an exclusive title for the Xbox 360.

    [Note: Xbox Fusion was cited in the rumored leak that we received; this is likely a codename in reference to the new console.]"


    If this is true, I actually don't mind the name, it makes sense. It will fuse Windows 8, Xbox Live, Kinect all in one.

    Doubt it. Why name a console after a cruddy Ford car?

    Maybe because they're attempting to fuse together XBox Live across Windows Phone 7, and Windows 8 which has nothing to do with the Ford car?

    Not worth getting into any potential legal issues over.

    And whye xactly would this start any potential legal issues?  It's not like they own the word fusion so nobody else can use it in the name of their products just because it's their make of car or anything like that (example Metroid Fusion) , and XBox is MS property.

    Well since you said Xbox is MS property, MS can always try and buy off the name like it did for the Xbox.

    Con+fusion :)

    Xbox Fusion sound normal. Beside Car there are other products/company already uses that term ... hmm

    MS might have a list of names, I wonder what are in that list.

    just for fun, maybe they can add the following in Xbox Win, Win box, Xbox RT, Xbox Bo, Xbox Conscious, Xbox Horizon , Xbox Shout, Xbox Magic, Xbox Nebula.... :)

    But like, XBox Live is already kind a product now.  Why would they change it?  Cause that would pretty much **** everybody off about their gamescores and stuff.

    DUAL PIXELS is GARBAGE with GARBAGE "staff".  Wikipedia has had info on these Wii U games for MONTHS now and the MS Fusion trademark story was covered back in May by a number of blogs  (pssst:  It's most likely a game triology).

    Could be a game or could be a name like what natal was.

    OK, so i decided to search for more articles because some people think the whole Fusion thing could just be another gaming trilogy, buthere's what I found intereting with lots of others citing similar results: http://www.thecascadeinn.net/2011/05/is-fusion-the-next-generation-xbox-kinect-or-just-a-gaming-trilogy/ This article says that MS files 3 trademarks, each preceded by the word Fusion; Fusion Genesis, Fusion Sentient, Fusion Vault.  So here's my theory...... Each trademark could be codename for something, or if not, relate to 3 (new) IPs particularly, and perhaps each of them containing (fusing, hence Fusion) a part of 1 another.  Genesis could perhaps have something to do with Windows Phone 7, or expanding that OS in some form like they did with our new XBox 360 dash to perhaps a dedicated handheld.  Sentient could very well reference the next gen console.  And finally, Vault could be representation for Windows 8, or maybe any of the 3 since we already know Windos8 is still being worked on.  So again just think, they could pertain to any of the 3 or a combination/Fusion of each in their form, thus perhaps these trademarks could easily relate to any of these conclusions. What do you guys think?
