Scratch: The Ultimate DJ developer sues Activision

by Ben Gilbert { Apr 14th 2009 at 8:20PM }  



In a David and Goliath story for the ages, Scratch: The Ultimate DJ LLC (a partnership between Genius Products and Numark formed to develop and publish the game of the same name) have revealed a mountain of details regarding a lawsuit against mega-publisher Activision. The lawsuit alleges Activision and 7 Studios -- contract developer for Genius Products -- have intentionally "conspired to withhold the current version of Scratch in an effort to delay the development and release" of the game. Scratch: The Ultimate DJ LLC is seeking the immediate return of its game as well as "other injunctive relief."

Trevor Drinkwater, president of Genius Products, is quoted as saying, "We believe that Activision and 7 Studios have improperly used confidential information obtained from Genius and 7 Studios to interfere with our efforts to complete the game. In short, we believe that Activision is attempting to sabotage the release of our much anticipated game and prevent it from getting to market prior to the release of DJ Hero." Fighting words indeed!

Interestingly, the details revealed this evening also outline Activision's attempt to "acquire" Scratch: The Ultimate DJ from Genius Products, who apparently rebuffed the attempt. Allegedly, Activision then proceeded to purchase 7 Studios and "conspired to prevent Scratch from getting to market on a timely basis" through a variety of means, including withholding "work product, code, and the proprietary game controller." We've still heard nothing from Activision regarding this lawsuit and due to the late arrival of this information, likely won't hear a response from the publisher until tomorrow at the earliest. We can, however, assure you this won't be the last time we hear about this.

알려진 바에 의하면 "액티비전이 Scratch를 매수하려고 했지만 거절당하고, 이후 7스튜디오를 매수하여 Scratch가 시장에 나오는 것을 원천 차단하는 음모를 꾸몄다"

Official enough: Kotick confirms DJ Hero for 2009
DJ Hero 2009년 확정 기정사실

by JC Fletcher { Jan 30th 2009 at 2:24PM }


Activision has yet to announce DJ Hero through any official channels. The "rumored" game has been revealed through trademarks, secret sources, and even musicians whose work is included. But because Activision hasn't sent out a true press release, the game continues to be in some kind of limbo between reality and rumor.

액티비전은 아직 DJ Hero에 대해서 공식적인 언급이 없었다.
이 "루머" 게임은 상표, 기밀 소스, 어떤 뮤지션이 참여했는지까지도 누설된 적이 있다.
하지만 액티비전이 정식 보도 관계자를 통해 밝힌 적은 없다. 이 게임은 진실과 루머 사이에서 계속되고 있다.

Activision CEO Bobby Kotick totally spilled the beans to CNBC, saying, "We have this product called DJ Hero coming out later this year which is a turntable that you can actually play competitively, spin discs and mix on." Can we call this first Guitar Hero spinoff "confirmed" yet? Because it's totally happening.

액티비전 최고경영자 Bobby Kotick는, "실제로 경쟁 플레이, 디스크를 회전시키고 믹스할 수 있는 턴테이블 게임인 DJ Hero라는 이름의 제품이 있으며 올해 말 출시 예정이다" 라며 CNBC를 통해 완전히 까발렸다. 완전히 우연히 일어난 사건이기 때문에, 이 기타 히어로의 첫 파생 제품이 "확정"되었다고 할 수 있는가?

In other news: CNBC's Joe Kernen is basically mystified by Nerf N-Strike. Just like everyone else.
