When Bungie tried to shut down talk from Imran Khan of Kinda Funny, Jeff Grubb of GamesBeat, and Tom Phillips of Eurogamer regarding acquisition talks with Microsoft, they were mostly successful.

But now, website XboxEra has done some legal digging. What have they found? Well, in short, while there has been a change in "registered agent" over at Bungie, there are a number of reasons why that change probably doesn't mean what they think. Let's talk about it.

We're registered to break hearts (and halos)...in Virtual Legality.
