SEGA have dropped a lawsuit on THQ over money they were owed from Steam pre-orders of Company of Heroes 2.
There were 20,755 pre-orders for Company of Heroes 2 registered through Steam from September 2012 to 24th January 2013. This generated revenue of $1,345,301.29 with Valve taking a 30% cut of those sales. This left THQ and Relic Entertainment with 70% which amounts to around $941,000.
SEGA claims it’s owned $508,877.85 from those pre-orders as Valve paid THQ after 19th December 2012, the day it filed for bankruptcy protection.
SEGA will be demoing the following games at this year’s E3:
Sonic: Lost World (Wii-U, 3DS)

SEGA and Gearbox Software have commented on the lawsuit being filed against them for misrepresenting Aliens: Colonial Marines in pre-release trailers.
SEGA have said, “Sega cannot comment on specifics of ongoing litigation. But we are confident that the lawsuit is without merit and we will defend it vigorously.”
Gearbox have said, “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.”
A lawsuit has been filed against SEGA and Gearbox Software for misrepresenting Aliens: Colonial Marines to customers.
The case has been filed by Edelson LLC on behalf of Damion Perrine. The claim reads:
“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.”
Japanese Android and iOS game Fire should Light a Match is a simple little game where you strike matches against matchboxes. The trick is not to strike items that aren’t matches which include things like pencils and cigarettes.
The App is extremely popular in Japan and through a series of QR codes you can download SEGA-themed backgrounds which feature Dreamcasts, Mega Drives and SEGA Saturns.
