    Found more info about this.

    From this leak, we may have learned that the actual name of the next Xbox console is “Xbox Infinity.” It's well known that developers have codenamed the device “Durango,” but enthusiasts and commentators alike have taken to calling the device the “Xbox 720,” considering it a logical name to follow the Xbox 360.

    While most remain certain that it will be called the Xbox 720, the actual name of the device has largely remained a mystery. Even so, this isn't the first time the name “Xbox Infinity” has been proposed or even leaked.

    In July, news that Microsoft had obtained the Web domains Xbox8.com, Xbox8.us and Xbox8.org, among several others, had many considering alternative names for the next Xbox console, which at that time was already being referred to as the Xbox 720. We even proposed the name “Xbox Infinite,” noting that the “8” in the Xbox 8 domain names may not be an eight at all but rather an upright infinity sign.

    A logo suggesting the name “Xbox Infinity” was also leaked in February, just one day before Sony unveiled its PlayStation 4. Similar to the current leak, this image shows the word Xbox next to a green infinity sign. The only difference is “Xbox” in the older image is all lower case letters, while “Xbox” in the more recently leaked image is all uppercase letters. This leak, however, appears to have not been heavily recognized.

    If you’d like to get into logistics, we’ve also considered that the current leak could be a fake. Perhaps someone learned of this old leak and doctored an image to mimic the look of the invitation sent out by Microsoft. We note that the “B” in Microsoft’s invitation is different than the one in the leaked image --- though the image is incredibly well made and also uses an Xbox hashtag in a similar fashion as the invitation as well as the green infinity sign from the previous leak.

    Regardless, it's interesting to have another name to consider for the next Xbox console, especially when you note that fans once thought the Nintendo Gamecube would be called the Nintendo 128.
