Microsoft Registers Xbox 8 Domains

Forget the Xbox 720, Durango, Loop or whatever other ridiculous names the next-gen Microsoft console has been called, because it looks like Xbox 8 may be what the company plans to go with. According to a report from Fusible, Microsoft has registered the following domains after winning two disputes that were filed back in May with the National Arbitration Forum: XboxPhone.com, XboxTablet.com, XboxLiveTV.com, XboxCompanion.com, Xbox8.us and Xbox8.org.

While this hardly confirms that Xbox 8 will be the name of the next Xbox, it would fit nicely alongside the Windows 8 branding the company has for its new operating system. Plus, if Sony decides to continue numbering their consoles, Xbox 8 sounds a whole lot newer and more advanced than PlayStation 4.
