Gearbox and Sega falsely advertised Aliens: Colonial Marines with press demos, according to lawsuit

Sega and Gearbox Software are the defendants in a class action suit claiming the two companies falsely advertised Aliens: Colonial Marines with unrepresentative trade show demonstrations.

The story is too old to be commented.

Sega deserves it for not funding the game so it would get to where it needed to be by the time it released, unfortunately an old fart judge is going to be reviewing the before and after pics, and I have a feeling based on those comparisons the judge won't have a clue what everyone is whining about as the difference only appears to be in the lighting in those pics.

Really this is just the typical whiny reaction from self entitled gamers who think they can hurt a developer for making a bad game. The thing is, all marketing materials that were released right before the game launched had the game's final footage and screenshots, and not the E3 demo screenshots, so the judge is going to throw this one out.

Still, it would be nice to see Sega get its just deserves for not paying the right amount of attention to a game that deserved to be made right.

I'm happy about this lawsuit since they tricked so many gamers into buying garbage

Its called bait and switlch and its 100% illegal in the U.S. I gladly will add my name to this lawsuit. What they pulled really was horribly wrong.

Generally by default you are included on a class action if you have proof of purchase ... Usually you only need to do work to opt out and commence your own suit if you wish...

I hope they finally get this awful mess sorted out, I don't like wishing ill on anyone but someones head needs to roll for this.

Curious to the person who's disagreeing with everyone, yet hasn't made a comment to validate his opinion.

And yes, Gearbox should be made to pay up for their lack of honesty and character.

Nevermind Randy, he likes to wait in the shadows on these articles.
