What I don't get, is how they can be ordered to destroy all software using the engine, they PAID for the license for the engine right? That's like Hershey suing their cocoa provider, losing the case, than being ordered to destroy all their chocolate, it doesn't make sense.


Yeah, I don't quite understand it either...

Speaking of TH, I still need to finish up. Only 1 cheevo left to get. I think it's the tier 3 charm completion.

Too Human might be a collectors item in 2050. I need to buy some now.

I don't understand, did Epic games create unreal engine 3, and they stole it, or what?


Epic creates the Unreal engine 3.
Licensed it to SK
SK then sues epic because "they didn't give them all the tools (something along those lines)
Epic wins lawsuit

Then this happens.


More than one developer sued Epic because they released early UE versions buggy and incomplete. Basically Epic needed money so they started licensing it broken before it was ready to get funds to finish it so they could do GoW.

It affected a LOT of games in the mid 00's and put some developers out of business. Corrupt courts sided with Epic (Microsoft) for some reason.

Silicon Knights
Troika
Square-Enix
Sigil
Eidos / Ion Storm

Had games effected.

-.- I really regret buying Too Human used at gamestop. Shoulda got it brand new from ebay.

I just skimmed through the ,pdf and SK also has to pay Epic Games a substantial amount of money.

This is really bad for SK.
