Rumour: Kinect for Xbox One has a Confusing Name

Posted by Ken Barnes

And that's an understatement.

During Microsoft's hardware reveal event yesterday, not much was said about the new Kinect device itself. Sure, we saw what it could do in terms of navigating through menus and switching between The Price Is Right and the big NFL football match of the week, but what do we call the new device? "Kinect 2 for Xbox One"? Just "Kinect"?

Well, confusingly, it appears that the device will be called Kinect One, if Microsoft's domain registrations from yesterday mean anything. The company has picked up Kinect1.org and KinectOne.info to complement the XboxFitness pickups they made at around the same time.

Kinect One? But what about the first Kinect? Surely that was Kinect 1? We're as confused as you are, but what's in a name, hey?

We're sure that the name will be confirmed at E3, along with a game or two.
