Microsoft has not officially announced the next-generation Xbox and the name of the upcoming console has yet to be revealed, though we are all waiting eagerly. Some possible names are the Xbox 720, or the Xbox 8. Now it has been reported that Microsoft has registered several new Xbox-related domain names. These include Xbox8.us and Xbox8.org. Hmmm. The plot thickens.
This definitely adds some support for the Xbox 8 name. They also might just be protecting that name from being associated by buying it.
Other domain names registered are: XboxPhone.com, XboxTablet.com, XboxLiveTV.com, and XboxCompanion.com. I guess we will just have to see how it plays out. I am really intrigued by an Xbox tablet. Maybe the next console will have a tablet controller.
