Xbox 2 named
Following on from Friday’s news that Nintendo is referring to its next hardware under the codename N5, we told you that today, the working title for Xbox 2 will be revealed.

Well, according to senior development sources in the UK, the machine carries the name Xenon. Indeed, this moniker is now in common use at both Microsoft’s Xbox HQ and at third-party development studios.

As to whether this is the name of the development suite, or the tentative name of the machine is not known, though given the amazing marketing spend enjoyed by Xbox, it’s likely that the machine, when it launched in late 2004/early 2005 will simply be called Xbox II.
