www.freexbox2.com registered by OfferCentric
If you WHOIS it, it will tell you offercentric bought with godaddy.com. Do I get a prize for this discovery? How about everyone use all my refs links? wink
It looks like there is a bit of a domain war between Gratis and OC
wow i want a xbox too
i'm tempted to buy www.xbox24free.com or www.phreexbox2.com and put something sayin "dear gratis / oc / phree network...if you want your effing domain, paypal $1,000 to __________ and I will give you the domain."
But if they call it the Xbox360 then you get kinda screwed lol, better get those as well.

Looks like OC to me.
Also, like slease was saying, they haven't even confirmed the xbox2 name yet. I've xbox2, xbox360, xexon, etc.
I will be so sweet to get the next generation of systems for free though!
oc has about 100 sites registered to their name. for future sites and just to have a claim on it if they ever want to do a site with those prizes. they registered psps4free and psp4free guess they wanted both.

thats called cybersquatting, and it's illegal )
Wow this is way old... I found this out like last month and even wrote OC and they responded that they will be opening this site up in the future. If you want some of the ones I found here they are

Thats illegal you cant take a website on purpsose to make them pay you. I had learned about it in my Business Law class but i cant remember what its called. But you cant simply do something on purpose to try to screw someone
Cybersqatting... and you are correct.. it's very illegal.
thanks for the clarification Chillywilly i couldnt remember D
we'll see the name of the new x-box, @ e3, i wish i could go, i live near LA too (, i wish i was a game designer D
actually cybersquatting is when you register a domain of a trademark holder such as jack daniels, dasiani, samsung, etc, in order to profit from the OWNER of the trademark
registering a bunch of xbox4free.com or freexbox05.com sites, etc is not cybersquatting unless a lawsuit was brought against you by the TRADEMARK holder, ie, microsoft. you can buy up all the freeli domain sites you want and offercentric or gratis couldnt do a damn thing about it because they hold no trademarks to those names
on the other hand, if you went and bought FREEGRATISPRIZES.com or OFFERCENTRICGIFTS.com, then they would hold the trademark, and be able to file suit against you
XBOX 2 will officially be named XBOX360
The X Box 2 will not be called the X Box 2.

Nope its gonna be xbox 360. And i just read, it's set for launch in october or novemer between $249-$299...I LIKE THAT PRICE!!! Also...they're teaming up with pepsi giving away over 9,000 of these bad boys before they come out. The article said it'll be winning them on caps like u do with the itunes now, and with the amount of caps that will be winners, they'll be giving away 1 xbox 360 every 10 minutes, 24 hours a day, for 9 weeks...I dunno about you guys, but I'm gonna be drinking a SHITLOAD of pepsi!!!
wow..lol you must have a LOT of time on your hands to go around whois'ing random domains P
nah its easier than u think u can just search for their ip and get the entire list of their sites. took me a while to find a whois search that does it by ip but i found one and it works great.
