Enjoying the Durango developers summit in London. So far, great swag and interesting talks.

Wonder if he's talking about the same Durango as this thread is...

Yup. Durango.

Note this is a code-name. Like the Katana (Dreamcast), Dolphin (GameCube) and Revolution (Wii) before it, it's not the name that will appear on the finished product when you finally get your hands on one.

It is the name, however, that you'll be hearing during the console's final development phase, that awkward time between it being first shown off and then actually released to the public.

Interestingly, it seems to also suggest a bit of a pattern in Microsoft's internal naming policies. Kinect, before we knew it as Kinect, was called Natal, named for a city in Brazil. Durango, meanwhile, is the name of one of Mexico's 31 states.

It's pronounced "doo-rahn-go."



Curious to see the reasoning behind it. Seems an odd choice.
edit: Oh, didn't know natal was a city. Okay, solves that, I suppose.

"A bit of a pattern"? I thought they always named their projects in development after cities? Or almost always.
