Aliens: Colonial Marines' infamously optimistic trailers will get a touch of reality thanks to one angry U.K. customer. The Reddit user, who goes by subpardave, sent a complaint to the U.K.'s Advertising Standards Agency about the difference in visual quality between the pre-release videos and the game itself.
"My aim was not to get fines, compensation or any of that," subpardave wrote. Instead he wanted to make sure Sega and the games industry at large is "held accountable for blatantly deceiving the consumer."
Adding a disclaimer to Colonial Marines' website and videos that the footage depicts an in-progress version may not live up to your definition of accountability, but the ASA did side with the consumer on this one.
