Sony and developer David Jaffe have been sued for allegedly copying other people's ideas in the God of War series of games.
No, not the original Greek myths, but the works of two Californians with strange surnames: Jonathan Bissoon-Dath and Jennifer Barrette-Herzog.
The main claim of the suit, according to GamePolitics, is that the pair had sent their work - including a screenplay - to Sony Pictures, as well as agents that deal with Sony Computer Entertainment America, back in 2002.
The double-barrelled duo note that God of War 1 was released in 2005, and that David Jaffe said the game took three years to develop. Whoops.
Pages of similarities between the fictional works of the duo and the God of War games were also listed.
These mention a champion picked by Zeus and Athens to defend against the invading army of Ares; a champion whose family is hacked to death; a champion whose weapons resemble the two glowing sword-hands of Zeus; and a champion who has to cross a sagging bridge over a bottomless chasm.
Sony and Jaffe, of course, deny all allegations and seek reimbursement for any money shelled out on lawyers and nice suits to wear in court.
