saw this at ign today, thought some of yous would be interested..... biggrin.gif


January 02, 2003 - According to a The Hollywood Reporter, the name of Xbox 2 will, in fact, be called Xbox Next. Though sources for this information were not cited, the domain xboxnext.com has been registered by MS.

The report went on to say MS planned to release Xbox Next before the Sony released PS3 in 2005 and that it would include UltimateTV technology to allow for digital recording and TV web surfing.

However, it's been long believed that a ReplayTV and web-browsing applications would be add-ons released within the next two years for the current version of Xbox.

The article also claimed that a smaller, lighter version of the Xbox may be released in 2003 for between $130-150.

MS could not be reached for comment, but we'll let you know the moment we learn more.

PS3 will be a definant thing to look out for, especially if they can do the networking between other PS3's and other networks in your home.

Would be great if Xbox Next could do that too, and the name kinda seems lame. Xbox Next? How about X2? (that two should be superscripted)
