Despite Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb calling the nickname disrespectful, Microsoft has officially acquired the domain “Xbone.com“. Records on WHOIS confirm as much, and quite frankly, considering that it’s more or less the unofficial nickname for the console, at least this allows the company to control it. Or at the very least, to shut it down completely.

Will that stop people from calling it the Xbone though? Doubtful. But at least the reversals on their policies mean people are using it less to insult Microsoft’s console nowadays.

About the nickname, Hyrb for the record stated on NeoGAF that, “I don’t like it…it disrespects the teams that have put in thousands of hours (already) into the development of the product. Sure, it’s cheeky but I don’t care for it myself.”

Meanwhile, the Xbox One will be launching worldwide on November 22nd worldwide and will be competing head-to-head with the PlayStation 4, which launches on November 15th in North America and November 29th in Europe. Which console will you be looking forward to? Let us know below.
