Of Course Someone At Microsoft Hates The Name "Xbone"

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.
