Microsoft seeking Glacier Blast trademark

Xbox maker's mark to be used for game software; company also snaps up GlacierBlastGame.com domain.

It appears Microsoft is preparing a new game called Glacier Blast. The company this week filed an application with the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) for the name, covering "game software."

Microsoft also picked up a related domain name--www.GlacierBlastGame.com--at the end of March. The website currently redirects to a Bing search.

A Microsoft representative was not immediately available to comment.

Microsoft also recently filed a trademark application for game software called Marlow Briggs, though the company has not made any official announcements.

lol we act as if b/c we play off line we are more safer from hackers. when that would be true in the old days of no online at all. but n these's new days if you have an account of any kind online psn/xboxlive/hotmail/yahoo/ign it can be hacked even if you don't ever sign in to you'er account so the ppl say by having next xbox always online ppl would be more at risk that's simple not true they would be no more at risk then they are now.xbl IS ALWAYS ONLINE NOW

people need to remember the rumors are just rumors it might not be true about always online. also till they show what kind of game it is quit amusing it is a kincet game. usually i would not be bothered what kind of game it is as long as it was fun to play but now i hope it is an epic controller game to shut up the kinect moaners

What MS NEEDS to be trademarking is something like Xbox 1000 or Xbox 1440.

Why?

Because at this rate, the 720 isn't going to be worth ****, so they may as well start on their NEXT nextgen system!

Its a simulator trying to capture what the next gen Xbox's online community will become so they choose to make it always online; a frozen wasteland.

Glacier Blast is what's coming out of Adam Orth's mouth.

Glacier Blast.. sounds like a toilet. Oh wait, that's Glacier Bay.

Still, it will be all I think of when I hear Glacier Blast from now on.

With a name like that, I'll wager Kinect is heavily involved.

"Glacier Blast" sounds like the name of a chewing gum or mouthwash.

I'll wait and see.

People need to stop being so skeptical on such little issues.

To me, it's kind of funny, Glacier Blast sounds like a pack of gum.

Can't wait to see what they come up with as a video game.

...or a pack of bubble gum, whichever is okay with me.

well whatever MS is doing and the tension between MS and Sony is "GOOD" for us gamers. I would love to see both MS and Sony succeed, that mean more quality games for us! I really dont understand the fanboyism...

Microsoft must think the thing that fell the Titanic is a fitting homage to Adam's comments.

@realshooter305 I just read about Orth and the whole "dealwithit" thing. He is not doing MS any favors.

Sounds like a Kinect game.....guess their always-on console will focus on Kinect. Hope they have something really sweet as an ace up their sleeve, cause right now, they are focusing on all the things that blew it for them and others this current gen.
