PS3Center writes: Forums exploded earlier this week when a forum poster on PS3forums said that the PS3 exclusive WarDevil was vaporware. Now Digi-Guys has taken legal action against the poster, but details still remain slim on their project.
u get what u deserve
couldn't agree more. Now this will teach a lesson to all those so call insiders that report false information.
To be completely fair and objective here, how do we know what he said was false information? Or did he even purport his statements to be more than just educated speculation in the first place?
Their and many other developers next stop should be n4g.
(Digi-Guys have stated that they have initiated legal proceedings against their ex-employee, who has been posting on this forum under the username of 'LeeArcher'.) So at least we know he was infact an ex employee, probaly also inveested in som way. He is not some kid inventing sh*t in his dad`s basement. This should get interesting.
Ps3forums is EMBARRASSING, imagine a "playstation" forum overrun by 360 fanboys. That's where posters like "aquanox" come from, on there he is a notorious 360 fanboy.
Now geek will cry for his mommy! "But i didn't mean to buah buah"
not a geek that will cry to his mom, but some dude that will get hit with a legal bat for breaking NDA. Two very different things. I`m more interestd in knowing why he is so pissed to do such a thing. I have high hopes for this game.
hhahahah to all xbots
Is there more to this story or did they really overreact that much to someone calling their game "vaporware"? A lawsuit seems kind of extreme...
someone clam that everything they show far was fake, and they have yet to get anything up and running on the PS3 after 2 years of development.
Game is still in production and as far as we know we could play it next year, so basically this geek by spreading this false rumor is putting them at risk in which many gamers accept this fact that game is in trash can and just miss it or goes under the radar. And just by reading comment of naive kids around forums, most of them did buy this fake azz rumor, so yeah legal actions are correct move. It might teach geeks not to take them selves to seriously.
@OP Good point and I would have to say I don't see too much coming out of this. Slander/Libel are tough to prove and I have a feeling the guy may be right. @Hater So? I've seen much more outrageous claims on message boards fly under the radar. I've seen more outrageous fanboy claims on these boards today to be more specific. @Too Pawned That barely even makes sense and definitely doesn't dignify a response. RUN to school, the future of the world may depend on it.
there is much more to this story, this is clearly not some kid spreading rumors, they would not of done this.
We dont know if the rumors are fake guys... The funny thing is that just a day before that dude posted the stuff on the ps3 forum, i was checking out digi guys and the wardevil project and i was wondering if someone could pull of something like that without making a game at all, just fooling people by putting up some cg movies etc and bragging about the so called studios excellent equipment and such. Then a day later i see this dude on the forum basically saying they are scammers and dont really have a product. Ofcourse the key difference between this and what i was wondering about(didnt really believe it, i was just thinking if that could possibly be pulled off) is that digi guys are a studio and they are making a game, but they have got so little done and everything they show is just cgi. I could definately believe that though, because there is something fishy about those guys. And remember how the dude on the forum talked about how digi guys threaten all the workers/ex-workers with lawsuits if they tell anything? Well that looks to be spot on. Until we see the game running on a ps3 i think the guy on the forum was right.
Sounds more like damage control to me. I remember the company of the vaporware console "Phantom" used to do the same thing when people labeled their product vaporware. Though I am hoping that I am wrong as I would like to see this game made.
I still think this guy might be telling the truth. It sounded like he was knowledgeable, but who knows.
Good, I hope more game companies take action againstk sites that delivery fake news.
if that hapens do you make any idea how many people from N4G would get companys after them we would end up seeing agent 47 looking for people around here lol..... but ya i kinda like what they did if we dont know what we are alking about better not talk about it ... But ya that wont stop me from having my opinions
So how do you know its fake Raoh? I bet a hundred bucks you are saying that because thats what you want to believe. You shouldnt be to certain though, because if that guy is right then you are applauding one of the most re-tarded companies in the world. In due time we will know, atleast i know better then to jump to conclusions.
Still eager to here how the game is coming along, taking legal action doesn't mean the guy was wrong. I don't really care about the legal wranglings right now, let's see what up with the game please.
correct. I want to see the game.
I agree; them taking "legal action" against a poster on a messageboard doesn't prove that their game exists in playable form. I sure hope that this game is real, and comes to fruition.
so far we have zero info on this game, if this law suit settles, we better see some concrete information otherwise it'll be even more suspicious. I mean come on, after 2 years they can't even provide a working demo play??
I want to see it as well. It's fishy that we haven't heard anything about this game an entire year.
DRAMA, DRAMA, DRAMA
or as clarence bodicker says on robocop "GUNS,GUNS,GUNS" the lawsuit guns that is.
Don't get me wrong, I'm pumped for WarDevil(this is the second article I've posted up to N4G about WarDevil in the last 4-5 months). But it bothers me that they would rather sue the guy than just prove him wrong by showing new footage. I'd show the footage first, THEN sue his ass ;)
That's right. 1 gameplay screenshot can change the opinion we got about what that guys said. And even knowing that they don't show nothing and start legal action... It's really weird, anyway i hope the game is real.
. . .read the remarks on PS3 forums that Leearcher made? He knows the insides and out of that company at it does come across as genuine. I'm open to suggestions myself, but he knows the boss and the people running the project, and even predicted they would do this.
exactly. I read a bunch of posts and it made a lot of sense. He is just using the game to get investors to give him money.
I agree with you both.They had lawyers ready to do this.If this rumor is true,the wrath of Sony will be massive upon Digi-Guys
*Octocamo on,Hide under the cardboardbox for more safety*
Your ass is sued buddy!
first he makes the comments on the forum, which may I say sounded highly credible and made sense, but instead of Digi-guys simply showing a gameplay video or releasing a gameplay screenshot of some sort, they decide to take legal action...kinda like what a company with no product to show would do? LETS SEE THE DAMN GAME!!!!!!!
Taking 'legal action' instead of proving the insider wrong with actual gameplay footage or screens pretty much proves that. Come on, 5 years of work and only one courtyard and 1 enemy to show for? HAH
If they don't show something at GDC or, at worst, E3, then this game has never been in development at all.
I think it is some sort of scam just to buy them more time. They are saying now that they won't show anything until this issue is sorted out. It makes totally no sense why they wouldn't show anymore info on the game just because of this. Smells like a load of sh!t.
Looks like the forum post may have been true after all.
BTW guys, I'm working on this game called Warlording...the... uhh Hoes, so please invest in my, I mean our sure hit 1080p project, make checks payable to Gochyadough Inc. and have a nice day.
Where do I send it to?
Got to admit that made me laugh. Bubbles!
That's another 2 years grace then.
but still no new information ahahaahahha scam scam ahaahahahahah sony should do something aleast make them show gameplay footage not that cgi fake sh*t were the monster actually fight not lie on their a##
If the project wasn't real and they sued the guy they would have to prove to the court that the game was real otherwise they would be proving to the court that they were scamming people, there is more going on then we know.
that will teach lying bastard a lesson! hope all xbots spreading misinformation will get the same.
