Will NextBox be called Xbox 8?

Posted on July 3, 2012 - 6:00pm by Toa Idar

A few months ago there were rumors that the next console from Microsoft should be named Xbox 8, and the reason was that it would fit well with the launch of Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 Now, Fusible tell that Microsoft has started the hunt for URLs associated with Xbox 8, and among them are Xbox8.us and Xbox8.org.

The domains are registered on the rest of a Chinese named Chen Juan, and there are numerous other Xbox domains that Microsoft has not shown interest. We do not know with certainty why just Juan's address is interesting, but all support the rumors that the console will be called Xbox 8

It is also worth mentioning that Microsoft has secured the rights to XboxPhone.com, XboxTablet.com and XboxLiveTV.com, which also had been registered by this enterprising Juan.

Microsoft has already acquired the rights to several Xbox-8-related URLs.
