Man sues Sony for their LIES

8 August 2014

killzone_shadow_fall Sony are being sued by one unhappy man.

Californian Douglas Ladore is taking Sony to court as he reckons they falsely advertised the native resolution of the multiplayer mode in Killzone Shadow Fall as 1080p

Mr Ladore boo-hoos that Sony is guilty of, "negligent misrepresentation, false advertisement, unfair competition and fraud in the inducement" for various claims from the company that a ‘native’ 1080p resolution was present in the game’s multiplayer.

Going on to shade them with "Unfortunately, Sony's marketing and on-box representations turned out to be nothing more than fiction."

Sony have always said that Killzone Shadow Fall runs at native 1080 and 60fps in both its single and multiplayer modes. However the game actually uses a thing called 'temporal reprojection' to achieve this 1080p image from a lower resolution render.

This 'temporal reprojection' lark tracks the position of pixels and manages to predict where they'll be to form a higher-resolution new frame.

Obviously Ladore is having none of it, claiming how this is more a "technological shortcut" rather than an actual native to the game as he claims advertised.

There's getting upset about something and then there's going through the process of thinking "yes, I'm going to sue this company for their LIES" and then doing so.

Some people eh? They need to go outside and have a minute.

    I don't see how he can be entitled to any more than a refund. He's hardly suffered any distress or monetary loss from it.

    To be fair, these games cost £50/£60, so the least they could do is spend some money making them look good, rather than cutting corners then claiming they're something they're not. Putting it in to context, this lawsuit will be a reaction to games companies constantly pulling this shit.
