[dropcap size=small]S[/dropcap]ony shipped Killzone: Shadow Fall on the same day that Playstation 4 was available in North America. This is the 4th installation in the Playstation Exclusive franchise. Despite initial favorable reviews, in March of this year, Digital Foundry ran tests that showed Shadow Fall’s multiplayer rendered in an upscaled 960×1080 resolution rather than the 1920×1080 resolution that ‘1080p’ requires.
After Digital Foundry’s report came out, a class action lawsuit was brought against Sony by an individual, Douglas Ladore, for advertising that Shadow Fall’s multiplayer was rendered in 1080p and numerous PS4 owners sought compensation for the illegitimate claims made about the game’s multiplayer resolution. Last Tuesday, a judge in the U.S. court system shot down Sony’s wishes to have the case dismissed, saying the counter arguments brought against the case by Sony “did not focus on facts, and attempted to display the side of Sony in a most favorable light.”
With continued litigation in Sony’s near future, we will keep you up to date on the case.
