Microsoft has registered a handful of domains featuring what some believe will be the name of their console: Xbox 8. Some of the domains are listed below:
Microsoft Corp recently won the rights to these domains from a resident in China. For more on the story, check out Fusible.
I see why Microsoft would want the domain XboxTablet, but Xbox 8 is puzzling. It's not like they bought every domain with "Xbox" and a number in it. Eight was deliberate. Naturally this means we're all going to speculate that this will be the name of their next console.
Do you think Xbox 8 is the name of next Xbox or is it simply Microsoft covering their bases?
