THQ & Adidas miCoach Lawsuit Settled

Companies part ways.

A few weeks ago Adidas filed a lawsuit against THQ over the miCoach 24/7. THQ were meant to have developed the game and published it in January.

Adidas put in a claim for $10million, citing that was the amount of damages this development failure had caused. They also wanted the game’s development tools and work already carried out so that another developer could finish and publish the title.

Speaking to Gamesta, Adidas Spokesman Frank Thomas said:

“Adidas and THQ have amicably resolved the dispute, which will allow Adidas to get the miCoach game to market without delay and without compromising any of its unique features.

Through the settlement, each party was recognised for and compensated for their important contributions to the game.”

The full details of the settlement have not been revealed but it is understood that THQ will no longer be involved with the miCoach game.

      Yes, because dropping the ball and then having to compensate said fuck up is a reason for THQ to screw Adidas over again… Sound logic…

    What a nice round number. Who on earth calculates these things?

    I’m glad it’s been settled though. Even though THQ were apparently the ones at fault here, the last thing we need is a company of their size going under.
