Xbox Fusion domains registered at Microsoft

żNew Xbox name?

Microsoft has been caught registering the xboxfusion.com domain which may be a hint of the next console's official name

Xbox-Scene

It seems that microsoft has registered (yet again) another domain that suggests a possible name for the next generation console. This time, it is xboxfusion.com that now is part of the already registered buch with xboxgold.com and xboxnext.com.

Fusible explained it better in this extract:


If Microsoft has learned anything from its previous mistakes with launching a product without the matching domains — then it’s quite possible that the company’s next generation console will be called the “Xbox Fusion”.

Microsoft owns the name in a variety of different extensions and it has for years.

Speculation about the name being called “Xbox Fusion” isn’t anything new. But what separates “Xbox Fusion” and only a few other names from the rest of the list, is that not only does Microsoft own the dot-com (WHOIS), it owns a slew of other domains like XboxFusion.info, XboxFusion.biz, XboxFusion.de, XboxFusion.co.uk – the list goes on and on.

Speculation of the next gen console’s name has gone wild, fueled lately by the recent leak on Reddit of what may be the logo.

Names being kicked around include the Xbox 720, Xbox Infinity, Xbox Infinite, Xbox Gold, Xbox 8, Xbox Durango, Xbox Next, and more.

i hate to be the bubble burster, but apparently these domains were registered back in 2004

while that doesn't necessarily mean that fusion won't be the name of the new system, it does make it less likely. (which is a shame, because i do actually like the fusion name. that, infinity, and next all sound great to me).

Reaper, the xbox1 emulator that runs on 360 is called "fusion"... which explains why it was registered back in 2004 wink.gif
