Microsoft may not like ‘Xbone’ nickname, but they just acquired Xbone.com
Major Nelson may not like the idea of the Xbox One being nicknamed the “Xbone”, but that hasn’t stopped the company from acquiring the domain name Xbone.com.
According to thelatest WHOIS records, Microsoft Corporation is the name’s new owner.
While it’s only speculation, it’s very possible the domain’s previous owner got an undisclosed amount of cash from Microsoft. And considering all the recent buzz this week, it probably wasn’t a small amount.
