Aliens Colonial Marines Lawsuit

Gearbox and Sega are being sued for false advertisement. The plaintiff in the case feels that demos of Aliens: Colonial Marines did not accurately reflect the final product.

"Each of the 'actual gameplay' demonstrations purported to show consumers exactly what they would be buying: a cutting edge video game with very specific features and qualities," the claim reads. "Unfortunately for their fans, Defendants never told anyone آ— consumers, industry critics, reviewers, or reporters آ— that their 'actual gameplay' demonstration advertising campaign bore little resemblance to the retail product that would eventually be sold to a large community of unwitting purchasers."
