Microsoft have reportedly registered 2 new domains XboxAB.com and XboxAB.net just weeks before E3 which has left a lot of people wondering what its all about...
I would speculate that this would have something to do with the wearable computer tech that Microsoft paid a whopping $150 million for if we are to believe reports.
Microsoft have also been working on a Virtual reality headset for both the Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles, so the chances are that this has a connection to that. Microsft have been very busy behind the scenes since the launch of the Xbox One and the promotion of Phil Spencer, although not much is being revealed right now. Could this be a secret weapon in Microsoft's arsenal to win over gamers?
As well as the acquisition of the $150 million compnay Osterhout Design Group, MS have also been trademarking several game-related names such as 'Eden Falls' and 'Secrets and Treasure'.
It would be awesome to think that Microsoft are right now creating a holodeck setup for the home such as the illumiroom which Microsoft previously showcased.
