    LOL! Just because they didn't 'show their appreciation for the new iOS game' doesn't mean they should sue them! I think this is stupid. Gotta go face palm.

    What do you think?

    I think we should all follow suit of BEP Music and neglect the Black Eyed Peas entirely.

    And then you decided to, you know, read the relevant portions:

    If they signed a contract that stipulates this and they didn't honor the contract, it's not "LOL!" it's called "breach of contract."

    Note to self: never go into business with xAC3L3G3NDx.

    the black eyed peas are ubisoft's clients, they should approach things differently. I work in design and clients hardly ever respond in time with approvals and it is in our contracts, but we would never go after them suing; it is simply not good business. If it delays the project then it delays the project, client usually ends up paying for delays through added services.

    Ironically this publicity is what "gets retarded in here."

    Yeah, I work listening to recorded phone calls about customer service for credit card stuff all day (service provided to stores)
    and it basically can be summed up in four words
    "contracts suck - READ THEM"

    It wouldn't be an authentic Black Eyed Peas experience if it wasn't longer and required more effort.

    My love for the human race lies in denying the existence of such ear-pillaging.

    I thought the Black Eyed Peas disbanded in 2001, well I wonder why Ubisoft didn't make a game about more important people.

    They also made a game about Michael Jackson ... he's not only from a group that disbanded a LONG time ago ... he's also DEAD.

    Oh, and also this:

    is dated less than a month ago.

    To be fair, the Michael Jackson game also came out right around his death which triggered a resurgence of Jackson's works.

    It didn't come out so awkwardly like the Black Eyed Peas game which came out what I thought was long after their popularity. Only thing I remember recently was that barmitzvah song and that was a long time ago... I thought.
