Microsoft Buys Xbone.com

Microsoft has purchased the domain for Xbone.com.
The nickname for Xbox One (which we used for a while but got bored) was coined approximately three seconds after the new console was announced. But Microsoft isn’t keen on it.
Speaking on NeoGaf a couple of days ago, Xbox Live’s Director of Programming Major Nelson was asked how he felt about the term. He responded by saying, “I don't like it...it disrespects the teams that have put in thousands of hours (already) into the development of the product. Sure, it's cheeky but I don't care for it myself.”
Now however, the platform-holder has snapped up Xbone.com, presumably in an effort to stop anyone else doing it? Dunno, but either way it’s funny.
