Fact is, the game is technically 1080p. Does it render a full 1080p image every frame? Yes. Does it only update every other vertical line? Yes. Is it still by definition a 1080p render? Yes.
You and the rest of the Sony fanboys need to learn damn difference between interlaced and progressive scan and stop twisting things. You admitted it yourself. The game doesn't refresh at a progressive scan frame rate on the vertical axis. Therefore it doesn't qualify as a 1080P. Sony should have known better than to say it does. You people just want to go and change the definition of progressive scan and interlaced to suit your needs.
Has nothing to do with gaming. This guy hopped the gun before anyone else and was capable of acquiring 5 million dollars. That's all the matters in this world, not morals not anything else. I'm sure Sony has the 5 mil to hand out, they're a corp who craps on it's costumers just like microsoft.
You have people everyday saying they'd do gay thing for one million, or eat this for one million. Why can this guy not sue a striving company for his well being in this unnecessarily competitive world?
Sony is just a shady company and hooked a lot of fools with the 1080p line. Even if the lawsuit goes nowhere I'm glad they got caught.
Sticky this and let the rest of the thread die.
That guy, if he loses, will be ruined with all the costs. He should stop lol. He's not gonna win, let's get real here. And if he loses, doesn't he have to pay for everything regarding the case?
Not in America. That's the english rule, where you usually do have to pay the other side's attorney's fees (which is what would be the really expensive part here, regular court costs would still be standard). That's how England and Australia operate.
In America, that's not usually how it goes unless there's an exception in a particular federal statute or case law or the federal rules of civil procedure. Our public policy is not to discourage people from bringing valid claims out of a fear of having to pay the other side's attorney's fees. Otherwise no one would ever sue big corporations even on valid claims that are guaranteed to succeed.
