EA Has No Grounds to Sue Zynga

"While it’s true that Zynga definitely doesn’t come up with original games, I would like to provide a counterpoint to all of the negativity surrounding the company: it’s doing nothing new, it’s doing nothing illegal, and it won’t be found guilty in EA’s claims because of this." |

Apple had no grounds to sue Samsung about rounded edges on a block. Still happened though.

Why would EA not be allowed to sue Zynga for closely related gameplay? Apparently you can! Although, as a game developer, I don't agree with it either.

TrevorPhillips2320d ago

Man, I seriously have had enough with all this suing, suing, suing...

When you're out of ideas and sequels you sue


LittleCricket2319d ago

Sorry, Elita, but you're wrong here. EA is far from out of ideas for Sequels, since Sims 4 has already been placed on the planning table, and their next expansion pack, for Sims 3, "Seasons" is scheduled to be released shortly. The
"Supernatural" expansion pack is doing VERY well, and players are having a ball with it. I don't anticipate a lack of interest in the franchise to happen any time too soon. As a Simmer, myself, and one who has been playing the game and collecting all of the Expansions and Stuff Packs, along with nearly every item that EA has made available for the game in their on line store, since February of 2000, I can tell you that I'm having as much fun with the game as I ever had. I still see players designing the fantastic homes, the luxurious fashions, and hairstyles, and creating Mods to correct problems with the game, and giving us a lot of great new options and possibilities. No, The Sims game Franchise is going to be around for a very long time.

@LittleCricket the only reason i said that was because of battlefield 4, its to dam soon for another battlefield

EA should respect their IP's

LittleCricket2319d ago

The only thing I personally have a problem with is your profile picture, and your screen name. It's VERY disrespectful and blasphemous to use the name and image of Christ in a game forum. Shame on you!

Look at this site I'm linking. This site shows every game Zynga ripped off. Page 2 shows The Social Sims in comparison to The Ville. If that's not blatant ripoff, then I don't know what is.

I agree all those are ripoffs except the Bingo one...I mean there's only so much you can do with Bingo.

That is for courts to decide but I do agree.
