For some reason only know to whoever currently has Microsoft's domain registration budget to hand, the Xbox maker has registered two domains containing the name, "Sony".

This was picked up by Superannuation:

"Microsoft registers "microsoft-sony.com" and "sony-microsoft.com" for some/no reason whatsoever."

And yes, indeed, the Whois data does indeed state:

"I'm a PS3"
"and I'm an xbox."
"My network gets hacked,
"and mine offers cross game chat. etc..."

it should have read "Microsoft are going to buy Sony that what it is. The rumor was started here." Need more sleep as I am half a sleep today not good, was even 3/4 of an hour late for work today, not good.
