I don't understand how you can sue a company for putting out an unfinished game... I'd think that you would have to prove malicious intent, otherwise you'd have no real legal grounds for a suit. It's like saying to a musician, I thought that "your music was pretty good, but the harmonies were underdeveloped and needed more work" and then suing them for pushing out an incomplete album. I'd agree if software fell under the same type of intellectual property laws as say a paperclip or a pencil, but they are in the same category as musical pieces or works of art. Those types of economic goods have looser restrictions and different sorts of regulatory requirements.

I can maybe see the suit going through IF they did in fact violate some of the SEC's securities regulations otherwise the suit stands on weak legs. yeah, it sucks that they put out incomplete products all the time, but who is stupider, the company for pushing out the products to make money or the consumers for buying the incomplete products? You get what you paid for and if you keep buying, they'll keep selling...simple economics.

(Edited for spelling...stupid keyboard needs replaced)

We Americans are a self-entitled and litigious people.

What it rests on is if the litigators working on the case think they can sell it far enough into the process to get a settlement out of EA.

The class action suit over the Madden series bought me an S4.

I should buy Battlefield 4 just so I can get in on another suit against them.

Take care those tend to burn while you charge them

Yeah, if you use knockoff batteries.

Edit- also, iphones can cause fatal electrocution if you use them while it's plugged in. Both beg the question of "why do you use your phone in this manner?"

Its all about keeping the lawyers in money not the consumers who paid for a game
you get a few dollars if that and they get fame and richer when it settles out of court

You seem to be implying that this is not how it should be.

Do the lawyers not do the work while we sit on out butts and complain about EA?

Should they not be rewarded for their efforts?

And it's not like they take a majority of the money. They take their contractually agreed upon cut. Probably around a third. The Madden guys got 27%.

And then the consumers get the rest.

That's fair.
