Microsoft Corporation privately registers slew of “Halo: Infinity” domain names

Microsoft has made some interesting domain name registrations this week, picking up several “Halo Infinity” domains like HaloInfinity.net and HaloInfinityMultiplayer.com through the internet brand protection company MarkMonitor. Microsoft didn’t stop there either registering several more. Infinity was a popular multiplayer level exclusive only to the PC for Halo: Combat Evolved. (Halo, Microsoft, Xbox 360)

i'm surprised they didn't register a domain for Halo: milk the cow?

I no right I mean I used to play halo a lot but they really should let it go now it's just getting beyond crap
360GamerFG  +   998d ago
Really? Because the last halo was given a 91 metacritic. . . Oh thats right, reviews only matter when we talk about uncharted right? Name me a single ps3 exclusive fps that has scored better than Halo Reach, I'll wait. . .
On topic, infinity is probably what the next xbox will be called.

Critically acclaimed "beyond crap"
MoFo1111  +   998d ago
They give the people what they want
dark-hollow  +   997d ago
Oh really? Let's see:

Halo 3 (main game)
Halo wars (RTS spin off by another developer)
Halo reach (main game)
Halo odst (expansion pack)
Halo 4 (main game)

Ratchet & Clank Future Tools of Destruction
Ratchet & Clank Future Quest for Booty
Ratchet & Clank FutureA Crack in Time
Ratchet & Clank all 4 one.

FOUR main games and nobody called them milked!
And don't tell halo is milked because it has ONE more game than R&C, halo was called milked even before halo 4 announcement, and god knows if insomiac may release another R&C game before the Gen ends.

They aren't milking Halo, not anymore at least. There was the 3 year span with Halo 3, ODST, and Reach but then they took a brake and let 343 take the reins. I'm not even a Halo fan but I'm looking forward to what 343 will do. I can at least enjoy one play through of a Halo game (still none have lived up to that feeling the first game gave me).
Dark11  +   997d ago
Well to be fair milking is fine as long they don't release it every year and put a huge a effort on their games.
Summons75  +   997d ago
that is the goal right now to put one out a year but they have said multiple times that every game still will hold the 3 year dev cycle so I really don't see where the milking comes from if they add to the overall universe/ story of the games.
NYC_Gamer  +   997d ago
Hmm...i bet you're a fan of some franchise that's been flooded with sequels too...Never played any Halo games but people need to stop with all the double standard bull shit..
Bobby Kotex  +   997d ago
If MSFT lets go of Halo they pretty much have nothing left.
DigitalRaptor  +   997d ago
This is so true. Halo is Microsoft's golden horse. Only Gears stands up to a similar degree and who knows if Epic are making another.

Side note, MM is my favorite Zelda, hands down.
Ghost250  +   997d ago

Oh, hands down.
Ghost250  +   997d ago
see this is the problem with this whole community, you can't even crack a joke cause automatically people get ass hurt. stop crying a get the fuck over it. "omg you did not just say halo is miked you bastard" shut-up

If Halo is Milked
Then what is Uncharted, Killzone, LBP, MotorStrom and major Sony Ips ? I play at least 2 per year be on Vita, Psp or Ps3.
hardandsloppy  +   997d ago
How are the exclusives you mentioned milked? There have been 3 uncharted games, 2 Killzone games this generation, 2 LBP games. I kind of agree with Motorstorm but how many halo games have their been this generation? There have been 4 and a 5 coming out this year. That is a lot different than 2 or 3.
lover2012  +   997d ago
yeah sure
3 uncharted /2 killzone/2 LBP/1 god of war on ps3
and you call that a milk ????

on one single platform xb
Halo 3
Halo wars
Halo reach
Halo odst
Halo 4

now that's a milk

i know ... i know

We don't even know what these are, they could be novels or books or something along those lines. Halo is one of the few gaming franchises that has a huge following outside of the games.

I've been a huge fan of the books, series and even the comics.

I don't think Halo is milked in the least, this is the first Halo game to feature Master Chief since 2007, that is more than enough time.
Intentions  +   997d ago
If people like the game then they will keep making games, whats the problem?
Hufandpuf  +   997d ago
this doesn't mean that there will be a new halo soon so calm down. And of course if 343 studios TOOK OVER the Halo franchise they won't just come out with 1 installment so this is expected. On topic, Halo 4 looks amazing.
MasterD919  +   997d ago
At least Halo is a respectable series. Halo is still in the top 10 online games being played. Not to mention how Bungie and 343 at least give a damn about their fans unlike other crappy companies.

Call of Duty isn't respectable?
Gears isn't respectable?

Both of these are both highly rated and popular on Xbox Live and sell well.

Just because a franchise is being milked, it doesn't mean the games are bad.
MasterD919  +   997d ago
Well I was just defending Halo. I am a huge Gears fan as well though. I have all the Halo and Gears games so I can agree there...

COD has degraded itself to a level that doesn't deserve any praise now. No innovation has taken place for quite some time there and it shows in MW3. Yes, millions play it but Halo has much more heart and quality than COD IMO.

COD is being milked. It has gone through more studios than necessary and even the founders of the original successful games are long gone. That is what I would call milked. Especially with yet another game arriving this year.

Totally agree with this comment ^^^ ......Halo multiplayer is on another level than most, if not all other FPS games (BF is great too though)......it takes time to learn and it's a hard game to master.......most haters are usually people that prefer COD (which is fine)

the fact is, for me at least, the biggest difference between sony and MS is that MS has halo and gears which obliterate the likes of resistance, killzone etc......Halo is the most balanced FPS on console and has a great base formula....(i have a PS3 too so no MS fanboy) this is just the truth !!!

The ranking system from past halos, which i'm sure will return in Halo 4 made you want to play, made you want to get better, to get to the next rank.....forget about rewards for just playing.......this is the main reason that kept players coming back.....trying to get as close to 50 as possible......

I recommend all the nay sayers watch the recent MLG halo finals from columbus......it was mind blowing stuff......the support from the community at that event was amazing.......

i wathed the final match between Instinct and Status Quo, and that was insane. Great stuff.
A7XEric  +   997d ago
It's not milking until main entries in the series become annual.
ginsunuva  +   997d ago
It's milking when the series comes to a natural rest but developers, at the last minute, decide to squeeze more content out, disrespecing the franchise, for more money alone.
You'll know when it's milked when it feels unnecessary, lacking believability, and out of place.
