Microsoft Registers Xbox 8 Domains

Microsoft Q1 Profits Down 18%, Xbox Division Sees Boost

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:

  • Xbox8.us
  • Xbox8.org
  • XboxLiveTV.com
  • XboxTablet.com
  • XboxPhone.com
  • XboxCompanion.com

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?
