Basically, Microsoft thought it wise to name the new Xbox as Xbox 360… however, I thought it was a stupid name, and if they had only named it Xbox 180 it would have fit better. Sorta like, “Microsoft is doing a 180 on the Xbox design” or some such nonsense.

Not that I hate Microsoft, but somehow this just fits.

Update: Just to clarify, Engadget NEVER used the 180 graphic. Perhaps had I worded it differently, it may have appeared as satire.

Update: Just changed the link to a static Flickr version.
