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.



Nope, they'd take the name MS turned down for the new Xbox --- the Disney Infinity. Oh wait....

Yup, I didn't think they were interested but now....
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.

Oh yea I doubt it too, but Previous thoughts onthe subject are now gone from no chance to unlikely.

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.

They are preparing to buy the xbox division after the new MS CEO casts it away.

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

"A console made for young children with games which aren't only fun, but also educative! Starring their favorite Disney stars from their respective movies, only for 100$ and the cartridges are available for 20$ a piece. The perfect christmas present"

Or something like that.

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.
