XboxOne Now Owns url Xbone.com & The Major Is Not Happy!


Fusible reports that Microsoft has bought Xbone.com, after Major Nelson called the console's mostly-affectionate nickname "disrespectful".

A WHOIS search reveals that the domain is owned by Microsoft. Currently nothing is hosted there - it redirects to a Bing search for 'Xbone' - but presumably Microsoft has bought it to prevent anybody else from using it.
On NeoGAF earlier this week, Major Nelson called the Xbone moniker disrespectful. "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," he wrote.

Time will tell if the Xbone nickname endures for as long as CODBLOPS. Xbox One launches on November 22nd.

Mr. Mike thinks that the Major just needs to chill out a bit, that's why it's called the internet Larry Hryb! People and I mean PEOPLE! should stop taking things way to seriously especially when it comes down to internet talk.  Microsoft did good to get the name out of the url channel but Larry really just chill man. And remember it's a false idea that everyone has an opinion out there because I believe Some Don't!

But really Microsoft why so late with my Xbone...Oh I mean my XboxOne the 22nd really? really? I want it nowwww!
