That is why people are more or less saying "Sega, WTF?"


That's just it., people are saying "SEGA, WTF??" without knowing the specifics. Just once i'd like to see someone with enough maturity to say "ok, well I don't know the specifics but i'll reserve judgement until I do"

I agree that many many DS games use the touch interface, so it's clear that it's something really specific.

as a poster said above, Apple sued for the curved edges on their phone, and succeeded.


Well, it's really Sega's own fault for not supplying the specifics in the first place. When you accuse someone of patent infringement and don't explain how they're infringing on said patent, you're asking for trouble.

I'm sure the people that need to know, kinow. the media is just using the story to stir the pot. If only they had the brains not to release this story until the specifics were known, as opposed to painting SEGA up as the bad guy, so the forums can go nuts.

I wished they sued Nintendo after the Phantom Hour Glass so the all future Zelda games weren't allowed touch controls.

Well, this is possibly the patent in question, though w/o knowing the patent number, no way to say for sure.

Now, without playing the game in question of violation, I can't say whether there's any infringement or not.

Sega's been worse than Capcom lately.

Both have been pretty ****y lately IMO. Personally, Sega's handling of Valkyria Chronicles is what has me ticked with them.
