Woman sues over video game-induced seizure

28 March 2007 20:22 by Dela
Woman sues over video game-induced seizureA woman has filed a lawsuit against Vivendi Games, Sierra Entertainment, Sony Computer Entertainment America, and a defunct rental store called Hiawatha Video, after her infant suffered an epileptic seizure while playing Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly on a PS2 console. The lawsuit alleges the defendants were "negligent, careless, and reckless with regard to the design and manufacture" of Spyro.

According to the lawsuit, the child has suffered permanent disabling injuries that will affect him "in all activities of daily living." As with all other games, Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly came with a warning about the possibility of experiencing epileptic seizures "when exposed to certain light patterns or flashing lights."

The woman is seeking damages on behalf of the child "for such fair and reasonable amount as may be awarded by a jury of his peers." Sony has requested that the woman specify the total amount of damages she's seeking.
