Aliens Colonial Marines Lawsuit

Perhaps inevitably, SEGA and Gearbox Software are named as defendants in a lawsuit over Aliens: Colonial Marines, the movie-based first-person shooter that met with a good deal of discontent after its recent release (thanks durandal). Polygon reports the suit was filed in the Northern District of California court by law firm Edelson LLC on behalf of plaintiff Damion Perrine, saying the game was falsely advertised. SEGA Europe has already received a scolding over how the visuals in the game did not live up to what was shown in prerelease trailers, and now this is being taken to the courts in the U.S. They offer the following excerpt from the court papers:

"Each of the 'actual gameplay' demonstrations purported to show consumers exactly what they would be buying: a cutting edge video game with very specific features and qualities," the claim reads. "Unfortunately for their fans, Defendants never told anyone consumers, industry critics, reviewers, or reporters that their 'actual gameplay' demonstration advertising campaign bore little resemblance to the retail product that would eventually be sold to a large community of unwitting purchasers."

It doesn't hold water as far as work in progress goes. For 1....yes CONTENT can and does change. Visual s quality tho..... Is supposed to be as good or better at release. They could have saved the game had they not stripped it down to 2002 visuals quality. Dumbazzes.

It won't, but anything that displeases Randy's ego can't be bad, right?

This will never stand, the game has video footage that was show as work in progress. and that means it is always subject to change.
