Microsoft acquires Xbox8 domains

Posted By | On 03rd, Jul. 2012

Microsoft have acquired two new URLs, Xbox8.us and Xbox8.org, fueling further speculation of what Microsoft’s next console will be named.

Fusible reported that Microsoft attained the new URLs following two disputes with a Chinese resident who’d already registered the pair.

Adding further enigma to the proceedings, Microsoft have not, however, sought action against the owner of Xbox8.com.

The name Xbox8 could have a whole host of meanings: Xbox 8 or Xbox Infinity could be the name of next generation Xbox; with Windows 8 facing an imminent launch, could be indicative of an operating system, or heavy cross-compatibility; or simply protection of the Xbox brand.

Recently leaked documents seemed to affirm the name Xbox 720, but the names Durango and Xbox Loop have also been tipped as the Microsoft’s NeXtbox.
