I seriously doubt the name "Xbox 720" will stick since it's an associciation with HD ready resolution, the very thing Microsoft will be dropping in favour of Full HD.

It's like calling Macbook Pro with Retina Display the "Macbook Pro HD".

My other hunch - There may be some iteration of Windows 8 running on the console, to make a sort of desktop machine out of it so Ms can offer a whole ecosystem (desktop, tablet and a phone). That would be oh-so awesome.

Yeah I agree. I don't think MS has ever actually referred to Xbox 720, it's just a stupid name coined by speculators. But it will do for now - everyone knows what you're talking about if you say "Xbox 720".

I also think you're right this will run some variant of Win8, but not to make a desktop equivalent - more like an AppleTV type device. They'd be stupid not to tie in with Windows tablets and phones for remote control, media sharing, and other tight integration.

They should call it xbox 900, and do a promo with tony hawks completing the 900.

Wasn't that the original idea? That the 360 name related to a 360 degree rotation?

well, if that is the case, then add some more rotations to it, or call it xbox2, since we haven't had that yet.
