Killzone: Shadow Fall's Resolution Lawsuit Has Been Dismissed

by Ben Reeves on May 05, 2015 at 11:05 AM

Last year, Douglas Ladore initiated a lawsuit against Sony Computer Entertainment for incorrectly marketing Killzone: Shadow Fall as having a native 1080p resolution (1920x1080) when in fact its multiplayer resolution is upscaled from 960x1080. This lawsuit has now been dismissed.

While this lawsuit was initially allowed to proceed, U.S. District Judge Edward Chen dismissed the case from court on April 22 with prejudice. The settlement terms are filed under seal, but each party will have to bear its own cost for the trial.

Despite this resolution gaff, is Killzone: Shadow Fall still a good looking game. Read our review here.

Our Take
I'm glad to see that this case has been put to rest. While I think that consumers should be protected from misrepresented marketing (as when Sony lost this lawsuit), this instance seemed like a minor blunder that probably wasn't worth a lawsuit.
