Xbox 720 refers to a rumored name for the 3rd generation of the Xbox Microsoft console, being an upgraded version of the "Xbox 360." In May 2013, the company revealed the official name of the console as "Xbox One," which inspired a series of ironic memes with the "Xbox 720" name.


The Xbox 360[1] console was released on November 22nd, 2005, in the United States and Canada. After its release, fans speculated the next generation console would be named "Xbox 720," as a Chinese blog post from October 23rd, 2006 explains that Microsoft's new product "may be named Xbox 3, Xbox 720 or NetXbox."[2]

One of the first images of the rumored "Xbox 720" was uploaded on March 15th, 2007 to the Trend Hunter[3] website. The image shows a round-shaped console with a disc being inserted in the front (seen below).


On May 21st, 2013, Microsoft revealed their 3rd generation console would be the "Xbox One." The YouTube[4] channel of the console posted an unveiling video, which garnered 7.2 million views and 34,000 likes in a decade (seen below).


In the years prior to Microsoft's announcement of the "Xbox One" console, the rumored name "Xbox 720" continued to flourish on video game-related meme pages, where it evolved into several Photoshop memes imagining what the console would look like. For instance, on February 13th, 2013, YouTube[5] user jimenez007360 uploaded a parody video showing an alleged "Xbox 720" model. The video (seen below) amassed 266,000 views and 7,100 likes in a decade.

On February 7th, 2013, Memedroid[6] user @dart_3po uploaded a fake image of an "Xbox 720" controller. The post (seen below) garnered 1,129 reactions in a decade.

I unironically love these "future console" concepts they are so often retarded because they are made like "what looks cool" and not "what works"

Nintendo NX, now known as Switch, probably had the least retarded concepts since so much info was known prior to it's official reveal.

This fan mockup got EXTREMELY close, the only mistake was thinking in the middle part being a phone.

But then you look at PS3 and PS4 concepts and just… lmao.
