Microsoft has reportedly settled on a name for its next-generation Xbox: the Xenon. During a recent interview with gaming site Spong, Microsoft Game Studios' J. Allard let the official name slip while discussing details of his upcoming keynote address later today at the Game Developers Conference, meaning they might reveal more on the system than previously thought.

“We're going to show a little bit of leg. We have thought about how best to catalyze some of our thoughts, so we’re going to show a little bit of what the Xenon user interface might look like, we’re going to talk a little bit about the specs just a little bit, and we're going to talk about online as well, and where we see the future of Live.”

"Xenon" is expected to hit the market near the end of this year possibly before Sony's PlayStation 3 and Nintendo's "Revolution" (codename) next-gen home consoles.

More next-gen console news as it's available.

Sounds pretty interesting. Personally I think that Sony's console empire is begining to crumble. Xenon and Revolution will most likely push Sony out of the way. Revolution and Xenon will then duke it out in one of the fiercest examples of corporate rivalry will will ever see. In the end thats good for the consumer.

Ok that was a big of a fantasy. But to be honest I can see Revolution and Xenon simply pushing PS3 out of the competition.
