I was unaware companies could patent things based on features offered by the hardware they're developing for. And from what was said in that little snippet of information it's like one company trying to sue another over having the "jump" command mapped to the "X" button. =/

Sega is desperate for cash because of all the flops they release.

Sega....you've been a pretty kick ass publisher this gen.

But I've gotta call bull**** on this one. There is no way they win this.

Why used games don't hurt the industry and why content passes are bull****: http://umthumbs.gametrailers.com/users/noobiablos/gamepad/?

Guess we can kiss Dark cloud 2 g'bye... unless Sony wants to hand it over to a developer with more money. Level 5 is broke as hell...

This is bad news. Level 5 is a small company and this could put them out of business or severely hurt the company. They are one of the few companies left that I actually enjoy.

According to the article they are suing because...

“A mechanism to manipulate the characters by touching the screen with your finger or pen.” Sega is claiming that “two patents acquired by the company has been compromised”.

So why isn't Sega suing every single smart phone game and a large number of DS, 3DS, and Vita game developers?
