Ugh… got this off the Game Creator Forums.

Visually impaired gamer sues Sony Online

Now then. I'll let you people decide how you feel about it. I'd say something, but I was always told that if you have something REALLY NASTY to say about something, shut your mouth.

Just kidding. Actually I don't know what to say about this…

Well, that seems a bit harsh. I mean, at what level of visual imparity is the “cutoff” point? Certainly they kind make the game ideal for all possibilities. Let's say a game has a color-coded puzzle: do they need to put in 8 or 9 additional cues so that the color blind can play it?

At first I thought this was about the Playstation Network. If you have a PS3 on a standard-definition TV, you basically can't read anything. A few games have big enough fonts to compensate, but most of them don't.

Hard to say. His case makes sense, but can be seen as not. What Sony could produce is a very few select number of games that have Lage Print, like the Large Print books in a library.
