    They can’t just register a Jojo attack, what are they thinking?

    Did you hear the latest about Fox vs. Blizzard over the trademark of the Spanish word "Diablo"?

    I find the "ownership" of ideas and words to be a funny subject. Sponsorships, producers, developers and more all get credit for their different roles. I just imagine playing Sunset Overdrive on a PlayStation and seeing the words,"brought to you by Sony" or something similar and it makes me thinks of the meme. Obvious it isn't "theft", which is why I presented it as an oxy-moron.

    I think that ownership over a specific title is ok, but when it is either a commonly used phrase or one word I don’t think that should be allowed. A perfect example would be Sky threatening lawsuit over Microsoft and hellogames, Microsoft for trying to name their cloud storage service “sky drive” and hellogames for no mans sky. So theoretically anyone could claim the word “the” and everyone would be bankrupt. Scary shit, even though there are probably laws against it, but concept still applies.

    The implications that every idea can be trademarked or copywritten is a dystopian scenario that I think about. Let me know when Nintendo starts suing people for saying the name "Mario" on youtube.

    If they release a sequel, it would be a power move to draw Xbox ppl to Sony.

    My thoughts exactly. I got it as soon as it launched and I've beat it twice, but... yeah.
