Definitely interesting. If the patents exist, Sega definitely has a case.


Yes. If a patent exists for "moving a character with a touchscreen", Sega definitely has a case.

Sega also has a case against Capcom, Nintendo, Konami, Namco Bandai, Square Enix, The Pokémon Company, and Atlus.

Good luck boys.

PS: I'd totally boycott SEGA if they were still making games.


It's about how characters are controlled specifically in a soccer game.


The patent reads that it goes beyond soccer and can apply to any game where you control a character like that.

So yes, SEGA is still trying to create a precedent that they control a very basic DS mechanic.

Sounds like a joke to me.


Alternate title: "NeoGAF wouldn't let me sign up. :("


That's not really a burn since Neogaf should let everybody sign up, like GameFAQs does. I haven't tried so I don't really know.

While NeoGAF may have its problems, limiting who can sign up prevents alternate accounts, trolls, and dummies.

Seems things are getting pretty desperate in Sega-land.

As a user who posts on both I'd say GFaqs is better for discussion on individual games because an actual board for the game > one massive OT topic. For most other discussion though GAF is a much better atmosphere, less trolls for one thing.

NeoGAF bans port begging, that instantly makes the forum respectable.

This isn't new from SEGA. They tried to patent the third dimension, in a specific way. I still have the EGM issue where they talked about this.
