Microsoft Buys Xbone.com
Written By
View author's profile

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.

@7 they are not they buy the domains so people can't create fake website using the unofficial nick name, ms,sony and even Nintendo buy up domains like this almost all companies do. In Canada there is large franchise called Canadian Tire which unofficial nick name is crappy tire, well they bought the domain off the guy because the site was just bad press for them they found.

People who call it the 'Xbone' are just as incompetent as the people who were calling the next console the 'Xbox 720'. I just refer to it as 'the One' as I refer to the current console as the '360'.

Then there's the old argument about it being the xbox 3, because there's already an xbox 1 ect. ect. bla bla bla, heard it all before.

Xbox One is a terrible name for your 3rd console launch, that's why everyone is trying to find different names for it like XBone, X1, XB1, i wouldn't be surprised if the name of the console is the next change... after all the other turnarounds why not.

I wish people would shut the hell up about the "180" switch. We get it...MS changed some of their policies. This is old news now. Let's move one.

On topic, I still call it Xbox. I did it with the first Xbox and still do it with the 360 (well I sometimes just call it the 360 for this current generation). I'm positive it will still be Xbox to me when Xbox One drops. For internet purposes, I'll just type X1.

Lol I don't care about names. Wii U is funny name, Xbox One is weird name and PlayStation 4 is smart name. But I really don't care. We will have good time with games on each of them own.

I find name is not important. Gaming, games and play them is most important to care about. :)

I really want GTA V right now as well Xbox One. But Patience is key. :)

The term Xbone will fit those who buy one quite well.
With all that's been said & done from Mico$oft only a true Bone Head!
would buy one.
I know children & Fanboys will continue to support Xbox.(eye-roll)
Adults & Gamers that have a brain will NOT!
At least not after 3 more years when the games cease for the 360.
Xbone is nothing more than a glorified remote-switchbox for your TV.
And that is with the Kinect on!
Why in the Hell would you pay $500.00 for that???
Newsflash Micro$oft I surf the Net on my PC or Smartphone!
I watch movies on Direct TV or RedBox rentals for $1.20 each!
I buy a Game console to F@&#%*G PLAY GAMES ON!!!
Take that worthless Kinect & shove it up your _$$$$ ;)

You'd think that the team of people who listed potential names for consideration and indeed those who chose the name (if not the same people) would've considered nicknames. I don't see how it's disrespectful though, just because Larry doesn't like it.

@38

I think it's a bit ironic that you claim "Adults and Gamers that have a brain" will not purchase an Xbox One when you have exemplified that you are the one lacking in mental capacity. Also, your "eye-rolls" make you look extremely childish, and your pretentious outlook does nothing to help support your claims of an advanced intellect. Furthermore, the Xbox One plays games just as well as any other gaming console, simply because it does more than that does not make it bad for gamers. This popular opinion is extremely stupid (and childish), especially when you look at the competition and realize that every modern game console is capable of some sort of media streaming, be it for movies or music. If you "buy a Game console to F@&#%*G PLAY GAMES ON!!!", you might as well just stick with the Ouya. Oh, but wait, even that can play movies. I guess we're all screwed.

To summarize: You're a moron. You're not as smart as you think you are. Your opinions are cliché and unfounded, and by the way, saying "Micro$oft" and "Xbone" is extremely childish.

Who are the morons here though? Certainly when they named it, they had to know people were going to call it XBONE. Yet they went ahead and named it that anyway. It's a lot like their DRM plans, and the press conference revealing nothing, in many ways just more botched attempts and failed opportunities.

As far as what Larry thinks about it, take that XBox One box-opening video of his. I started watching it, thought it was kind of boring, but what the heck right? When he took out the console and started calling it beautiful and sleek and sexy, the video got shut off as quickly as those whooshy wimpy NXE console sounds were shut down. With the quickness.

How the hell does that guy keep a straight face?

@63: They decided to get rid of DRM, I highly doubt it was done as quickly as they announced it. They had to take out family sharing and other features along with the licensing setup for all the games in development. Just because they said they would go back does not make it easy.

As for xbone, it's a stupid nickname that only stuck because people were stuck on the rage train following E3 because it was the cool thing to do at the time. MS buying the domain just keeps idiots from using it like idiots.

@63 You do know that because of removing drm they have to recode the entire os its why a lot of the it will be at launch was unable to be at launch (causing a delay in half the countries it was expected to launch).

Some of the voice and apps that ms is building will not be available tell next year as all focus is on making sure the os works as far as I heard it was close to finished at e3 and they basically had to start almost from scratch to recode the thing.

In the end no including Consumer reaction nor sales this most likely cost ms a few million easily on programmers having to do the job twice to get it up and running.

But yea you could say hey all they had to do is flip a switch as that is why we must download a patch when the console comes out (due to the os still not be finished due to the drm reversals and them already manufacturing the consoles)

XBONE was a terrible decision in the first place.

Look at all the rude, pathetic people on hear tearing into others based on their opinions of a nickname for the new console. People really do sink that low & it's just downright weak & pathetic of them. Who are you to take their right away to have an opinion about something? Lowlife is all I can think of when it comes to rude, intolerant people like most of the commentors on here!
Xbone is what it is. If you don't like or even if you do, don't disrespect others because you just end up looking like an idiot yourself.

Put it this way: It was called the '360' meaning '360 degrees of entertainment'. So, how the hell would 720 work?! I'm surprised that people who were calling it the 720 can actually do maths.

78: simple, it refers to another spin in which you have taken a better glimpse at games, Kinect, LIVE and the community. Moreover, it's a sensible direction to take from 360. Unlike One - what is that about, Square One?

I'm surprised that Microsoft didn't buy up "XboxOneEighty.com" while they were at it! :-p

@45 I disagree & find your gamertag to be vulgar/childish.
@47 I have you to know I've been a member here going on two years & have posted many times. It's not my fault this site has not up-dated my spec's.
@56 I could go into posting our intellects against each other but it would be unfair & unkind to you I'm certain.
Also the way I type "Micro$oft" is something I've seen other's do & thought it was dead-on with Micro$ofts only focus & concern $$$
Playing "games on" I mentioned was to show what Xbone apparently had forgotten being caught up in this all-in-one, Kinect, DRM hell.
In the beginning I bought the Kinect as soon as it came out & gave it a fair try.It sets on top of my flat-screen never being used. $150.00 for nothing! Thank you Micro$oft for that I needed the reality check.
I have been an Xbox fan for years & have a right to my opinion & disgust with Xbone! It is my wish to convey to others on here why they should not buy the Xbone because you should not after what they tried to do on principle alone!!!
If you buy the Xbone your nothing but a hardcore, Fanboy = Micro$oft kiss-_$$!!! And I say that with logic & experience applied.
It should be called the (X-FAIL)
I have not name called any of you so if your getting ticked off with my post it's because I've made a valid point & you can't stand it.
That's getting at the "FANBOY" term I've used to the children on here that might not have realized that...

Lets just admit that Xbone is a failed console. PS 3 out sold Xbox 360 and had better exclusives. PS 4 beats xbone at any day. Xbone will have 300 000 servers wow that is cool have fun getting disconection kids cus on PS 4 we will have a great day without downloading a patch that takes away the stupid DRM and the other BS.

@1 You missed the joke about it being called Xbone. It wasn't because it sounded cool. It was a joke about them 'boning' you with the console.

@84 Get your facts right if your going to post,the 360 outsold the PS3 and everyone knows this because Microsoft even use it in there advertisements.
I do think however the PS4 will outsell the Xbox one because Microsoft insulted so many 360 users.
