    New Xbox 720 News

    Will the Next Xbox Be Called Fusion?
    Microsoft has registered multiple domains related to the term Xbox Fusion. Spotted by Fusible, Microsoft picked up XboxFusion.com, XboxFusion.info, XboxFusion.biz, XboxFusion.de and XboxFusion.co.uk, among others.

    It’s worth noting that Microsoft does not currently own .com domains related to Xbox 720, Xbox Infinity, Xbox Durango or Xbox Infinite, but does own Xbox Fusion, Xbox Next and Xbox Gold. Previously, Microsoft also secured domains related to the term Xbox 8.

    The new URLs don’t tell us anything for sure, but domain names have served as indicators of Microsoft’s plans in the past. Back in February, Microsoft registered an Xbox Event website that did indeed end up being used to register for its upcoming console reveal event.

    For now, nothing is certain, but we’ll certainly find out more when Microsoft reveals its new Xbox on May 21st. We’ve reached out to Microsoft about the domain names, but until we hear back you can read our round-up of the latest Xbox rumors.


    Next Xbox’s Optional Subscription Fee May Be $15

    A new rumor suggests that the alleged subsidized model of Microsoft’s next Xbox will carry a larger monthly fee than expected. According to Windows SuperSite reporter Paul Thurrott, last week’s report that a subsidized $299 next-gen Xbox would carry a $10 monthly fee is incorrect. Instead, Thurrott noted on Twitter that his source suggests the cheaper model carries a $15 fee instead.

    The rumor was corroborated by The Verge reporter Tom Warren, who tweeted "yup" and noted that the subscription “includes family” as well.

    The rumor follows a previous report suggesting two pricing models for the next Xbox: a standalone $499 version, and this $299 version carrying a monthly fee. Previously, Microsoft released a $99 Xbox 360 model that carried a similar $15 fee. The offer later expanded to offer a system including a Kinect for $149 along with the same monthly charge.

    For now, all information about the next Xbox is simply a rumor, but we’ll find out for sure on May 21st.

    I hope it's just called, The Xbox.

    If someone asks "Want to come over and play Xbox?" you wouldnt expect them to bust out with the Xbox original would you? I hope Microsoft breaks the trend and just calls it the Xbox.

    So... If you buy the expensive model, there's no monthly fee?

    I have xbox live and my brother doesn't so can he not play this xbox without being connected to xbox live? Nobody has ever had to pay a monthy rate for an xbox and that 15 dollars isn't for live I don't think cause that would be way too much money

    I think they'll still keep the silver membership, meaning you don't have to pay the fee for singleplayer games, but you do have to be connected.

    Oh yeah that's true but I highly believe that this whole connection thing will ruin the xbox 720

    Re: New Xbox 720 News

    $15 for a monthly subscription?! That's absolutely atrocious.... that amounts to what, $180 a year? There has to be some really, really good justification and perks to warrant such a price.

    Unfortunately, the less educated consumer will buy the supposedly "cheaper" console and expect it to pay off in the long run.

    Unless Microsoft has something exceptional up their sleeve, it just seems apparent the PS4 is going to be the dominant console...
