Son of Xbox cheap and cheerful?

Over at the also very spicey Digitimes today we learn that Microsoft will push its suppliers of DVD drives down by around 30 per cent, as part of a general cost cutting exercise before....

....it says, the Xbox 2 is launched in September.

Digitimes calls it the "second generation Xbox", and put together with all the other gossip over the last month or two, this makes for a really interesting picture.

The price cuts, and the need for Microsoft to find cheaper components to compete with the ever popular Sony PlayStation 2 and the Nintendo Gamecube, underline that the console market is a terrible place to be in

Nevertheless, Microsoft said before launch in the US last year that it knew it had to be there for the duration, and it's only conjecture how many millions it's expended on the product so far.
