Microsoft Claims Ownership of Two Xbox One-Related Domains

July 17, 2013 -

Fusible reports that Microsoft has successfully secured ownership of the domain names XboxOne.com and XboxOne.net. In late May the company filed a cybersquatting complaint with the National Arbitration Forum asking the oversight body to turn the domains over. Microsoft's actions against the cybersquatter were aided by the Richard Law Group, which helped it secure two other domains related to its business last year - XboxPhone.com and XboxTablet.com.

Microsoft is the first company to secure the matching domain of its next-gen console - a feat that is pretty difficult to pull off, apparently; domain's for Sony's PS4 console are owned by other companies, and Nintendo recently lost a bid to secure the WiiU.com domain name after filing a cybersquatting complaint.

Xbox One will be available in 21 markets around the world this November and priced at $499.
