From original source:

"Game but a mechanism to manipulate the characters by touching the screen with your finger or pen, the claim in the complaint Sega "two patents acquired by the company has been compromised" and. I have sold more than 300 million has 8 series in the works, and about 900 million yen was supposed to enter as royalties."

Have they been paying attention to the WiiU or Smartphone games. This is already a feature that has been out there for years.

it relates to the platform but specifically to the game. otherwise (as you say) they could try and sue every company that makes a touch type game.

It is something specific in how the person and the onscreen action are manipulated not just simply the manipulation.

Same elements, different situations...

Apple didn't need to sue Samsung, they just did that to remain on top / make the competition look bad.

Sega is doing bad financially, so I wouldn't be shocked if they went with this reach to stay alive for a little longer.

Sega's gone way downhill. Instead of a proper Sonic game, they give us garbage over and over.

I have a feeling that this will backfire and put Sega into some deep s****.

I hope so, it's pretty disgusting thing to do by Sega.

Our beloved games industry is already suffering in some quarters, so this class suit action is particularly saddening.

With all the developer/publishing houses closing over the last few years, this activity doesn't help, but merely serves to erode the industry, and sadly if continues...our gaming industry is in danger of self-consumption.

Remember the big industry crash of the late 80's & early 90's?

Too young? ...Go Google ;0
