Aliens Colonial Marines: Sega and Gearbox Being Sued in Class Action Lawsuit

Despite the critical lashing that Aliens: Colonial Marines received, even the various controversies which included Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford’s refusal of any kind of criticism and doubts as to whether it was the product the developer had showcased years ago, it still did reasonably good sales.

But the bad times aren’t over yet. Because Edelson LLC on behalf of Damion Perrinne are filing a class action lawsuit against Gearbox and Sega according to Polygon.

“Each of the ‘actual gameplay’ demonstrations purported to show consumers exactly what they would be buying: a cutting
edge video game with very specific features and qualities.

“Unfortunately for their fans, Defendants never told anyone – consumers, industry critics, reviewers, or reporters – that their ‘actual gameplay’ demonstration advertising campaign bore little resemblance to the retail product that would eventually be sold to a large community of unwitting purchasers.

Edelson LLC’s Ben Thomassen stated that, “The gaming community had a strong reaction to the release of Aliens: Colonial Marines. We think the video game industry is no different than any other that deals with consumers: if companies like Sega and Gearbox promise their customers one thing but deliver something else, then they should be held accountable for that decision.”

Let’s how Pitchford and Sega plan to spin this.
