Miscellaneous News   Miscellaneous News : Xbox 2 named?
   posted by DaveyD on 9-Jan-2003 23:28:40 (2030 reads)
Xbox Next may be the name, and Mini-box to be released also ... or so they say

The rumor mill has it that Xbox 2's name has been picked. The new console will be called Xbox Next, according to several websites. Most point to the fact that Microsoft apparently registered the URL, though that really doesn't prove a thing.

Though the name is not 100 percent, the fact that Xbox is getting a sequel has been for a while, with Gates saying that it will pre-empt Sony's PS3 (rumored for a 2005 release).

Also, there are reports out there--don't ask where, they're just out there--that the Xbox is getting shrunk down for a re-release later this year. I wonder if they'll call it "Mini Xbox?" Of course we all know that a funky green machine is set to come out later this year as well.

ikir, Xbox isn`t ####, it IS far more powerfull than either PS2 or Gamecube.

And from a tinkerers point of view you can do loads more with it than either of the other two.

XBOX is more powerfull than others console.. but only Technically. XBOX ins't a real console. It is a pc. PS2 and GC have games wich are super optimized. XBOX runs normal pc games wiht 1 line of c edited...

Enjoy PS2 and GC! Boycott M$
Ps: GBA is very nice!!! Did you see the last payback screens?

Umm .. The Turbo Grafx is the most powerful game system! Ok, maybe not, but it was one of the best. Bring it back NEC! You can take on the XBox I know it!

No matter how badly we've been screwed by Sony over the PS3, it's still better than a $#!+Box...
