Possible reason for the name Xbox 360

Maybe some people remember this fact, maybe they don’t. But it’s cool enough to re-iterate for those that weren’t around during our next-gen console talks a few years ago.

Xbox 360 received it’s name for two reasons. Microsoft looked at the competition and figured that between:
Playstation 3 (THREE) and Nintendo’s Revolution (code name), that Xbox2 would seem dated and undesirable if placed on the same shelf.

Therefore, 360 is a full revolution and it has the number 3 in it. I always find this fact to be amazing.
