Sega Settles ‘Aliens’|Ad Class Action


     SAN FRANCISCO (CN) – Sega has settled a class action that claimed its ads for “Aliens: Colonial Marines” misrepresented the game’s quality.
     Sega’s codefendant Gearbox settled the claims against it last week.
     Lead plaintiff Damion Perrine sued Sega of America and Gearbox Software in 2013, claiming the game’s misleading promo induced him to buy it.
     The game is based on James Cameron’s 1986 film “Aliens.”
     After Gearbox settled the claims against it last week, its attorney Robert Schwartz, with Irell & Manella, said his client “paid nothing to plaintiffs.”
     Neither side could be reached Tuesday for the terms of the Sega settlement and dismissal.
