This year will see the release of Windows 8 onto the PC market and Microsoft are going to follow suite with the release of Windows Phone 8.
A few sources have suggested Microsoft may follow their naming moniker on the upcoming Xbox and will be calling it Xbox 8. It is an odd name but hell its better than “Wii U”.
Please note that this is just a rumour and may not happen. It would be interesting to keep the 8 on products in that timeline and sounds like a smart idea. What do you think?
