A video game developer has sued Electronic Arts Inc.,
charging that the world's biggest video game publisher stole an idea
for a game feature he had and incorporated it in the popular football
title "Madden NFL 06." "We have read the complaint and the allegations are completely without merit," an EA spokeswoman told Reuters on Friday.
his lawsuit filed November 28 with the California Superior Court in San
Mateo County, Virtual Jam owner Pernell Harris said he met with EA in
late 2003 to discuss "Heart of a Champion," a football game he was
developing in which players guide an athlete from high school to
professional football. Among other things, players pick the
athlete's parents and handle all kinds of daily experiences from sports
practice to school homework.
