Ubisoft bought redsteel5.com

Wow. http://gonintendo.com/viewstory.php?id=93042

Thats a little crazy.

I’m going to go buy RedSteel6.com through RedSteel99.com, just to spite them.

I always assumed company’s did this, buy a shit load of other domains just for the fuck of it.

Yahoo.com bought the domain Yaho.com, just in case anyone forgot to put the extra “o” in there.

Just a fact from JPjuice23.

Well it means they at least have the idea of sequels.

Fingers Crossed

Also, if you click the dot on the ! in Yahoo.com, you will hear “YAHOO” in your speakers.

Another fun and wacky fact, brought to you, by JPjuice23!

Those domains could have potential other used other tha sequels also, they could house other facts of archived info relating to any of the games, they could be differnt front ends, they could be differnt failovers, they could even refer to a group in a game (5 main bosses, the Red Steel 5) or whatever. Reserving more than a dozen names without using it costs less than paying one employee a days pay.

They probably bought it simply to secure them for the future so that, say, some random German Porn company doesn’t come in gobble it up, or some Viagra re-directory, or dare I say, something George Clooney related.

Example: Whitehouse.com was a porn site for 7 years before the owner volunteered to give it up and move on. And the government couldn’t take it away from him, because he had complete rights to the domain.

Zelda.com also used to be a porn site.
