Both SEGA and Gearbox Software have issued responses to Kotaku on the class action lawsuit that was filed on Wednesday, claiming Aliens: Colonial Marines used false advertising.

“SEGA cannot comment on specifics of ongoing litigation, but we are confident that the lawsuit is without merit and we will defend it vigorously” SEGA told Kotaku.

The lawsuit, filed by Edelson LLC on behalf of Damion Perrine, claims Gearbox and SEGA falsely advertised Aliens: Colonial Marines by showing ‘actual gameplay’ demos at trade shows which were not accurate representations of the released product.

After being approached for comment by Kotaku, Gearbox responded: “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.”
