Before its release, the Xbox was originally called the DirectXbox but in early 2000, Microsoft shortened the name to just Xbox.
The 360 logo was used on a few games for the original Xbox near the end if its run such as the Burger King games, the demos that come with the magazine prior to the Xbox 360's release as well as the holograms on the discs and seals from 2005-2007. It went off at 2008 and was replaced by Xbox 360. However, the Xbox 360 was launched after the Xbox console had a new logo.
