While Sony is busy with the acquisition of the gaming cloud service Gaikai, Microsoft quietly registers several domains, by the names of which one can not only assume that their new console will be called Xbox 8, but also that the company may have a smartphone, tablet and TV on the Xbox theme . Do not believe me? Then here's food for thought:

  • XboxPhone.com
  • XboxTablet.com
  • XboxLiveTV.com
  • XboxCompanion.com
  • Xbox8.us
  • Xbox8.org

The first two domains are understandable and at the same time intriguing, because Microsoft has Nokia. The third hints either to own TV or just television service, although something similar is already there for the Xbox 360. The fourth domain does not understand at all - only the next voice assistant, like Siri, comes to mind. Finally, the last two give grounds to assume that this will be the name of the successor to the Xbox 360, if at all, although you will agree that the Xbox 720 will sound and look much more familiar. However, marketers know better. Source: Fusible
