Microsoft has won the rights to a series of Xbox-related domain names formerly owned by Cheng Juan of China. The disputed domains include the popular console’s name in a number of URLs. However, of the series of domain names won, the two that seem to get alot of attention are xbox8.org and xbox8.us.
LTG contacted Microsoft to respond to the newly rumored name and said that the company “does not respond to rumors or speculation”. With Microsoft pushing the number 8 and Metro as a unifying platform between its mobile and desktop, it seems like a natural assumption.
Gamers and press anticipate Microsoft to unveil details of the new console at next year’s E3.
