Microsft Secures Rights to “Xbox 8” Domains

Micrososft has secured the rights of a couple of domains and two of them pertain to an “Xbox 8.”

Here’s a list of domains Microsoft registered.

  • Xbox8.us
  • Xbox8.org
  • XboxLiveTV.com
  • XboxTablet.com
  • XboxPhone.com
  • XboxCompanion.com

Microsoft has secured the rights to the Xbox 8 name from a man cyber-squatting in China.

While Microsoft has the upcoming Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 OS coming out soon, how does this connect to Xbox 8?

Can this be the new name for its upcoming console? Or just Microsoft preventing people from claiming their relevant sites?
