Sony hit with class action suit over  Killzone  resolution
Sony hit with class action suit over Killzone resolution
August 6, 2014 | By Christian Nutt




As uncovered by Polygon, Sony has been named in a class action lawsuit thanks to the fact that PlayStation 4 launch title Killzone: Shadow Fall doesn't have "native" 1080p HD graphics -- at least according to one player, and his legal team.

According to the lawsuit, PS4 owner Douglas Ladore purchased the game under the impression he'd be getting a 1080p experience, but discovered the game was "blurry" when playing in multiplayer.

The game's producer, Poria Torkan, discussed the ins and outs of the game's resolution on its official blog back in March; the game uses a technique called "temporal reprojection" to "reconstruct a full 1080p image."

"If native means that every part of the pipeline is 1080p then this technique is not native," Torkan writes.

"Had Plaintiff known that Killzone's multiplayer mode was not running at a graphics resolution of 1080p, he would have not have purchased Killzone at all, or would have paid substantially less for it," the lawsuit states.

The class-action lawsuit brought by Ladore seeks to force Sony to compensate PS4 owners who purchased Killzone: Shadow Fall.

The suit was filed by law firm Edelson PC, which also filed suit against Sega and Gearbox over Aliens: Colonial Marines and against EA over a Battlefield promotion.
