It may be something. Or it may be nothing. What is for sure is that Disney Enterprises, Inc. has registered the domain DisneyConsole.com (WHOIS).

The domain was registered this week through Corporation Service Company (CSC), a company that helps businesses protect their brands.

Lol I truly, truly hope that this isn't a games console they're registering a domain for. What exactly are they going to bring to the table, more Disney movie tie-ins? /facepalm

Maybe it's just some sort of set-top box that allows unlimited access to the entire historical collection of Disney movies streamed from their own severs for a monthly fee or something. If that's the case they should just let Netflix place a big fat check for those rights.

Really doesn't seem to be any point to registering this domain.

Definitely a candidate that could buy the Xbox division were it to be put up for sale IMO.

I still doubt it, console is far from a word exclusive to gaming, and even if they did release what could be classified as a gaming console it could easily be a Leap Frog-esque device, just a Disney edutainment platform.

Would be funny if they grabbed the Xbox division though. So long as they didn't immediately gut it anyway, but at least Halo'd survive probably.

Disney shut down all their studios and pretty much washed their hands of the gaming industry a few months ago. Seems unlikely that much will come of this.

If Disney did buy the Xbox division, what in the world would they do with the Halo ip? It just makes no sense to me, hypothetically.

If they weren't interested they could just sell it, I'm sure Ubisoft would love a big FPS like Halo.

Sounds more like one of many domains that covers whatever keywords people put in when searching for Disney videogames, and then redirects to something like http://games.disney.com/video-games

Disney will be the company to buy the Xbox if MS decide to sell. They have the licences to make it a success.

Doubt Disney is looking at buying MS or Sony.
They killed off just about all their game assets this gen.

If anything I'd bet money on an android based console with all of the licensed disney games on that platform playable on it with a controller.

That sounds kind of likely, actually. Wasn't the LeapPad the hottest selling toy last Christmas? Disney must've been watching that and salivating at the thought of how much money there was to be had.

Doubt it is videogame related, given that they recently moved away from videogame development. I mean, just look at what they did to LucasArts too.
