Microsoft Registers Domains for Kinect One and Xbox Fitness
Written Thursday, May 23, 2013 By Lee BradleyView author's profile
Microsoft has registered a number of domains which point to the release of a new exercise game for Xbox One, as well as the name of the company’s new Kinect unit.
The domain names are Kinect1.org, KinectOne.info, XboxFitness.info and XboxFitness.biz, and were registered or updated on the day of the Xbox One reveal by Microsoft itself.
So what do they tell us? Well, they tell us that there’s potentially an Xbone fitness game on the way called Xbox Fitness that basically nobody will care about (other than Editor Dan who loves that crap).
It also tells us that Microsoft’s new, improved Kinect device may be called Kinect One, which would be a bit confusing because, well, it’s not the first one and we’ve been referring to it as Kinect 2.0 for ages. But hey, we’re used to being confused about the Xbone.
On stage at the Xbone reveal earlier in the week, Microsoft announced that the new console will receive 15 exclusives within its first year, 8 of which will be brand new properties. Could Xbox Fitness be one of them? We’ll have to wait and see.
And yes, I’m definitely gonna continue calling it the Xbone.
