Microsoft Fails Again to get it straight.
This story is kind of funny if you think about it, yea the guy bought these up hoping Microsoft would some day want them. The funny part is that they decided after the release to even think about getting this domain. Or did they think of the name the day before! More below.
Microsoft has filed a complaint over XboxOne.com and XboxOne.net in hopes of taking control of the domains.
According to Fusible, Microsoft's dispute is filed with the National Arbitration Forum (case number 1501205, currently listed as “pending” on the NAF database), and the company is seeking to acquire the websites from a single UK resident who owns both. The WHOIS info for both domains suggests that they were registered on December 29, 2011 by a Krasimir Hristov Ivanov who resides in London.
Microsoft previously registered a handful of domain names for rumored Xbox codenames including Xbox 8 and Xbox Fusion. It’s worth noting that Microsoft also does not appear to own the Xbox One Twitter account.
