Microsoft now owns XboxOne.com
After legal struggle, Microsoft lawyers take ownership of XboxOne.com and XboxOne.net.
After filing a complaint with the National Arbitration Forum in May, Microsoft now officially owns the domains XboxOne.com and XboxOne.net, according to a new report from Fusible.
The initial complaint was filed in late May, following Microsoft's official announcement of the Xbox One during a high-profile event at the company's headquarters in Redmond, Washington.
It is believed that Microsoft did not register the XboxOne.com domain earlier because doing so could have given away the name of the company's next-generation console.
Microsoft is now the only platform holder to own domain names related to its next-generation console. Sony does not own PlayStation4.com, and Nintendo does not own WiiU.com.
The Xbox One launches in November for $500.
