That doesn’t reg 100 odd names prior to development of a product which is likerly going to start with xbox is really looking for publicity or scratching the arse of the governing bodies show there doing a grand job pats on the back for all when they win?

    It's tricky. Microsoft have quite a long history of suing (and winning) when it comes to domains with their product. In this case would 'xbox' have any meaning if it wasn't a games console by them?
