Having just had his NeoGAF account approved, Microsoft's Larry Hryb told users on the site earlier this week that he doesn't care for the now-standard nickname for the company's new console, the Xbone.

"I don't like it", he says in response to a question from a user. "...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."


I only bring this up because, according to Fusible, two days after Hryb said that Microsoft went and bought Xbone.com.

While there's a 99% chance it's just so nobody else buys it, I'll always hold out hope that somebody, somewhere inside Microsoft has a great idea for a fake official console site.
