Sega: The Aliens False Advertising Lawsuit Is "Without Merit" [UPDATE]

A class action lawsuit claiming that Aliens: Colonial Marines used false advertising is happening. Today, SEGA—publisher behind the title—has responded with a comment.

“SEGA cannot comment on specifics of ongoing litigation, but we are confident that the lawsuit is without merit and we will defend it vigorously,” SEGA told Kotaku.

The plaintiff seeks damages for people who bought the game before the discrepancies between advertising and final product were publicly known. As we've noted before, there is a noticeable difference between the advertising and the actual game.

Gearbox has not responded to our request for comment.

UPDATE: Gearbox responds:

"Attempting to wring a class action lawsuit out of a demonstration is beyond meritless. We continue to support the game, and will defend the rights of entertainers to share their works-in-progress without fear of frivolous litigation."
