Ugh. I hate Twitter. LOL.

doubtful. that article grabbed people's interest for a few days, then completely died and was never mentioned. A good idea could be for everyone to write to people like Ed Boon on twitter and let him know how awesome and accessible his MK series is and suggest any improvements. Twitter might be the way to go since everyone seems to be using it nowadays. What were the odds of any of us getting in contact with MK's lead developer before people got interested in twitter? none probably. So let's take advantage of this opportunity guys and let's make ourselves known to these people. Harmonix also has twitter accounts, and they've shown some interest towards accessibility for the blind. I remember Brandon posted to their message boards and he even got a reply from harmonix devs if I'm not mistaken. SO instead of sitting here and discussing this among ourselves, let's do something about it. Ed Boon's twitter name: noobde

It's even more depressing when you consider the almost overwhelmingly positive response to the last article pertaining to us that was posted on Gamespot. Of course that was about games developed for and by blind folks and not about mainstream games being made accessible. Grrr! If only this guy hadn't filed this riddiculous lawsuit! We MIGHT have had a chance of getting somewhere. Homer: Hey, uh, could you go across the street and get me a slice of pizza?

Hi Scott,
Indeed the case seams pretty weak. He and his lawyers are reaching with their suit. So it will be very interesting to see how the judge, if it goes that far, will decide the legal ramifications of this case. I too agree that media support would not be of much help. I've read the comments too, and most of them were pretty discouraging. It seams the general mainstream gaming community could care less about accessibility. If we are getting a response like that on a major forum like Game Spot we can hardly expect national or international media attention to be much better. I'm afraid Sony has the upper hand in this one.

A) doomed to fail and B) a pretty dodgy case in the first place
assuming the people this guy is taking on weren't a giant with
ridiculously highly paid lawyers at their beck and call.  I'm no law
expert, but so far as I know the stretch he's trying for on both
points is about as sound as a chocolate teapot, hence Sony will more
than likely dismiss it as pesky and pay him off a bit if he's lucky.
Of course, everything would be a different ball game if the media get
hold of it and take this chaps side on a national or international
level, but going on the comments thus far it's unlikely dontcha think.
