It's official, Sega of Japan has gone insane and lost their minds. First the was the DMCA against people with Shining series videos and now this. No wonder TotalBiscuit is boycotting their stuff. Seriously who are they gonna try and go after next, Nintendo for having the DS Zelda games control in a similar way.

If you think this is bad you should see what SEGA of Japan are doing to their 'Shining' series American fans.

hope there's more to it then how the bottom screen was used in the game >.>
I mean every game now is similar control wise and it would be funny if sega won the latter part of the suit :]
Just imagine everytime you confirm a choice with X in ps3 system game would be infringing on another game.
We all doubt it's that bad but now I'm so curious....

Next thing you know, Nintendo's going to start suing developers for using A to jump.

What petty nonsense. I hope this case doesn't go anywhere and gets thrown out of court.
