Those are fun facts about the video game industry and the Xbox 360, but let's get to the real question: Why did they name it the "Xbox 360," and not just the "Xbox 2?" Did we miss 358 iterations between the two or something?
Bach explained that they didn't want to have the Xbox 2 on the market when the PlayStation 3 came out, for fear of their product seeming somehow inferior. So they scrapped "Xbox 2" altogether as a way of trying to catch up.
They settled on "Xbox 360" because 360 degrees marks one full revolution. They wanted their title to suggest that it was a revolution in gaming. Also, running in circles can be fun, so it's a titular double whammy.
Now you know, and knowing is half the battle...unless you have Game Genie, in which case the battle just became exponentially easier.
