I mean, MS had no problem skipping Windows 9, I don’t see why they couldn’t just skip ahead if that was the rationale.


#445

Windows 8.1 = Windows 9.

Skipping 9 fits into the Windows Good / Trash cycle though.


#446

iPhone also skipped 9


#447

someone at MS probably predicted this during last gen release and was exactly why they went with this naming scheme :laughing:

Xbox 360
Xbox 720
Xbox 1080
Xbox 1440

Isn’t the best, but still better than what they went with.

Still think they could’ve pulled a Nintendo by putting in a name inside. The Nintendo Wii wasn’t numbered, but look at how well it sold. Of course its mostly the motion controls being neat and all, but the name is super easy to understand too.


#451

Yup, Wii - pronounced - from piss-poor graphics.

Reuters link included since the first AP News link appears opinionated.


#461

is it bad of me that i actually want this to be fake?
like it would be a mad brilliant strategy to divert attention after the debate, before Nov 3, but not “too close” - like i can just feel he walks out on the WH lawn holding a press briefing after exactly 14days on the dot, that he is “cleared and overcome and stronger than ever has the best vitality and more stamina than every other men his age, fabulous health doctors said they’ve not seen health like mine”

^boy that’s gonna age like fine milk if the situations takes a nosedive :no_mouth:
