The question is, will it go anywhere?

Sgt_Slaughter1969d ago

So why did they wait for almost two years to file when they knew about the Switch since late 2016?

CurbStompin1969d ago

Are you seriously asking that? So they can get paid for every console sold so far. Plus future royalties

Sgt_Slaughter1968d ago

It was supposed to be a bit more sarcastic than that but I didn't add more to my point lol

I don't claim to be a lawyer but wouldn't the fact that the joycons are a required part of it (in portable mode) make it different than an add on that has no connection to the devices hardware? I also thought ideas aren't patentable otherwise only 1 company would be making phones or tvs, the way it works is nothing like the way that garbage accessory worked

Technically Joy Cons are not required since there are other Controller options

Why now & not when it was announced is always the question I have with these things

I didn't mind The Callisto Protocol but the DLC really soured me, made everything feel pointless

Also these types of articles...why are we allowing articles where you need to pay to read the entire thing on here.

That sucks. I’m enjoying it so far.

Having a hunch ... Glen Schofield might boomerang back to EA or Activision.
Or what if Sony lets them form a new studio under PS umbrella?

Loved Callisto Protocol alot though it did walk a little too closely in Dead Space's shadow. Would be great to see them seperate more in a sequel.

Schofield’s gone, among others? How long before they shutter? I platinumed it, wasn’t the worst game.
