'Xenon' the code name for Xbox 2

The game console is expected to appeal to a wider variety of consumers.

"Xenon" is the code name for the forthcoming Xbox 2 from Microsoft, a company representative said. The game console is expected to appeal to a wider variety of consumers and contain a wider variety of features, including music playback. The future console will also differ from the current Xbox in that the key chips inside the system will come from IBM, ATI Technologies and SIS, rather than Intel and Nvidia. Some game sites reported the code-name, but the company has not publicly touted the name, the representative said.
