Next-generation Xbox to carry Durango codename

Microsoft is internally referring to the third-generation Xbox console as Durango, Kotaku claimed to have learned from multiple sources near the project. If true, this means any future news and rumors will center around this name, though the finalized name on the console and packaging will differ and isn't yet known. Durango is the name of one of Mexico's 31 states, which follows the theme started by Natal, Microsoft's codename for Kinect and a city in Brazil.

Such codenames are nothing new in the industry, with Sega using Katana for its Dreamcast home console and Nintendo using Dolphin and Revolution for its GameCube and Wii consoles.

The third-generation Xbox is expected to go on sale some time in 2013.
