Microsoft’s latest game console is called the Xbox One, although the device has been given the Xbone nickname, which Microsoft’s isn’t that impressed about.
Although this hasn’t stopped Microsoft buying the Xbone.com domain name, which was spotted by the guys over at Fusible, Microsoft’s Major Nelson posted on NeoGaf earlier in the week about the nickname the console has been given.
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.
It looks like Microsoft may have purchased the Xbone.com and Xbone.net domain names from the previous owner, as there are no details of any dispute on the names being filed.
