The Xbone nickname has caught on among less-than-satisfied gamers in recent months, and despite Larry Hryb saying he feels the nickname is disrespectful, it seems Microsoft has gone ahead and bought the Xbone domain name anyway.

The record shows that the domain was created back in 2000 but last modified on September 11, which we assume is when the keys were handed over to Microsoft.
