Sega moves for Colonial Marines settlement

It should come as no surprise to anyone that what we got with Aliens: Colonial Marines was not what was satisfactory, by any means.  In the ongoing lawsuit regarding false advertising for the title, Sega has agreed to a settlement with the plaintiffs, which would require Sega to pay out $1.25 million.

This would give plaintiffs Damion Perrine and John Locke $2,500, their attorneys’ fees $312,500 and leave $200,000 for administrative fees.  But since this is a class action lawsuit, that leaves $735,000 to be distributed to other members of the suit.  Ideally, that would give everyone who was a part of the suit $59.99, the cost of the game, before applicable taxes.

But once you consider the sheer number of people involved in the suit (around 135,000 people), that gives you about $5.44 per.  Better than nothing though, right?  Hopefully this would send a message that gamers do not take, nor will we continue to take that kind of bullshit.
