i hate people like this*new story*

http://www.cnn.com/2005/TECH/fun.gam....ap/index.html



the old lady got the game for her grandson thats 14, and the games rating is "m" so that makes it 17 and up right?

so why did she flie a lawsuit* when she got the game not paying attention to the rating.....

"She sought unspecified damages on behalf of herself and all consumers nationwide,"

she shouldnt get any money from it, and thats crap that she is doing it on behalf of consumers nationwide...lol bs

she should give all that money away, if i was the judged i wouldnt give her a dime...

Re: i hate people like this

I mentioned this in another thread, but I'll say it again....

are people really suggesting that murder, drugs, and cop-killing is absolutely ok for someone that is 17 but some fake sex isn't ok until they're 18?

if you need a mod to unluck something, is that really the same as including it in the content? Even if the mod violates the EULA?

Re: i hate people like this

I think lawsuits like this should be thrown out at the door. and any lawyer who takes one of these cases should be disbarred

Re: i hate people like this

Should counter-sue for her stupidity.
Reminds me of the hot coffee - McDonalds thing few years back.
Absolutely rediculous.
She shouldnt get a dime as she neglected the rating on the front cover of the game.

Now there's a whole thing about Rockstar getting sued over hidden content in the game that can be unlocked with game modifiers available on the internet, why arent they sueing the people making modifiers for the game? BECAUSE THERE IS NO MONEY THERE!!!
It's easier to sue a relatively profitable organization and get some money. I feel sorry for rockstar and outraged and angry at the woman.
If I were the judge, i'd throw the case out, and make her pay for ALL the court and legal fees for both sides.

REDICULOUS

They should allow judges to carry guns in a courtroom to pop a cap in the ass of idiots like that.

to be fair, while the McDonalds coffee case may seem frivolous, it was actually a pretty good one. Yes, she was an idiot for putting it between her legs but are you honestly saying that coffee should be served to a customer that is hot enough to provide immediate 3rd degree burns? *We're talking about burns so severe they require emergency room care, multiple surgeries and skin grafts. *

as far as the GTA stuff goes, it's pretty stupid. *But I have to admit that I see her point. *There was, in fact, data on the disc that was not disclosed to the public. *Data that, if a customer knew about it, may have prevented them from buying it in the first place. *I'll talk for days about how I think the double standard exists for sex vs violence, and how these people are truly idiots, but I'm anxious to see how this works out. *does installing a mod violate the EULA? Does violating an EULA release the publisher from liability?

I was thinking that a similar situation would be installing an aftermarket exhaust on your car, that made it non-compliant with emissions laws. *Is Mazda to blame because they made a car that would be non-compliant if you installed an aftermarket part? Are you to blame for installing it, or is the exhaust maker at fault because they knew what would happen? *

What if Mazda designed their car to be used with this specific non-compliant exhaust, but then decided to go with something compliant but didn't change the design. *Are they at fault for not disclosing that?

Again, I see the lady's point even though I don't agree with her. *I think she's an idiot for buying the game for her grandson, but maybe she truly does think that copkilling is ok but sex isn't, and would not have purchased it knowing this. (fat chance, but I'll give her the benefit of the doubt.)

Re: i hate people like this

What I love is the first 5 minutes of the game would have been enough for this granny to go irate. It's been how long since the games been out? Unfortunately, they have to go through this whole messy process because someone found an "easter egg". I wonder if she bought her son the console version or the pc version. If she bought the console version she has no ability to sue, right? Since it's only the pc version that can be modded.
