Connotations of a Name

I'm not entirely
certain that I like the name of next-gen system Xbox 360.

360, of course, makes it seem like they just went around, decided that it's better to profit than innovate, and made a course along the exact same way they voyaged the first time.

Then again, calling it the Xbox 180, while hinting that a new direction was plotted, could lead people to believe that they were hoping for failure with this model, since that would be opposite from their debut.

They could just avoid degree measurements altogether.

Maybe put it in radians?
