Smaller ‘Xbox Fusion’ Console Rumour From Last Year Re-Surfaces

…Microsoft snaps up new domain names…

Last March, thisisxbox was informed of a really great piece of news that suggested a smaller Xbox console by the name of Fusion would surface at E3 2012 – however, it never did, but todays new reports of domain acquisitions reignite those rumours.

We were informed that originally ‘XBOX Fusion’ LIVE was on the “QT” as a small piece of hardware designed as a set top box with Kinect integration (sold separately). It will have wireless capabilities to the same standard as the current Xbox S console and feature its own online dashboard. Memory will come in the form of 16GB built in with USB slots available for extra storage and Xbox 360 controller support.

Xbox Fusion LIVE will host it’s own metro themed dashboard, have the Xbox LIVE Arcade game store, Games on Demand, the App’s Marketplace, Zune Marketplace and should be regarded as an entertainment centre for additional televisions in the home not connected to Xbox 360 consoles… or could be a great way for non gamers to have access to all the great entertainment experiences from the current Xbox LIVE Dashboard without the need for games.

Today, reports suggest that Microsoft has claimed a number of Xbox Fusion related domain names and as you can imagine the whole internet has gone crazy to think that the new generation Xbox will be called ‘Xbox Fusion’ instead. With a number of rumoured names under its belt, Xbox 720, Xbox 8, Xbox Infinite, Xbox Infinity, Xbox Fusion – we can not wait until May 21st when it is officially unveiled by Microsoft.

We’ll keep you posted in due course.

    Twitter user Jordash1991 points out that the Fusion domains were registered way, way back in 2004.

    Really? I thought they were purchased only recently? I need to investigate! ;)

    Yeah MS hasn’t owned the domain since 2004 by looks of it. In 2001 it was used as an Xbox news site, but I am sure when there’s a domain acquisition by dispute or enforcement they get taken over on the DNS entries as owners leaving the original date in place from the previous owner… a smooth transition and not a re-registration. It simply rolls on… if you get me…
