God of War Creator Being Sued

GamePolitics.com has reported that the creator of the hit franchise God of War is being sued for plagiarism.  Jonathan Bissoon-Dath and Jennifer Barrette-Herzog both have filed a claim against publisher SCEA and SCEA employee David Jaffe, claiming that they had sent work into Sony Pictures as well as SCEA.

They claim that the story, characters, and plot lines were taken from their ideas and incorporated into the game God of War.  Pretty serious stuff.  It will be interesting to see how this one turns out.

    I hope David Jaffe gets in so much trouble. He is being too arrogant and that his oh-so “hot” God Of War series will become cold as ice.

    So they sue now? Makes perfect sense.

    Anyways, I am sure it’s bullshit unless they provide backup for their sueing. If they don’t, it won’t work.
