MICROSOFT is being sued by In-Fusio over an alleged breach of a development and distribution agreement for Halo on mobile phones.

In-Fusio explained in a complaint filed in a Seattle district court yesterday that its programming designs are subject to Microsoft's approval, "which cannot be unreasonably withheld". But it's alleged Microsoft "thwarted" In-Fusio's efforts to develop Halo.

In the last 11 months since an agreement was signed, Microsoft has approved none of In-Fusio's designs and, it's alleged has ignored and refused to accept any of its game design concepts.

But after Microsoft agreed to delay future payments from In-Fusio, it's alleged it demanded half a million dollars from the firm. And on November 27th last, Microsoft served In-Fusio with a purported breach notice.

In-Fusio wants damages and an injunction on Microsoft. The agreement itself has been placed under seal in the court. µ
