But if you can actually read... "...Sony ignored repeated requests through postal mail and e-mail to come up with reasonable modifications to its games to make them more accessible."

He's not asking how game's being made. He's not asking for money. He's asking for "reasonable" modifications (like, maybe enlarge the text, or high contrast colors for UI via patch or something). I don't think he's asking for something impossible. Again, SOE should at least reply and figure something out than flat out ignoring his requests.
Maybe he was using an obsolete email this whole time. I mean it's possible, he is blind.

What they could have done to be nice isn't the point, a lawsuit is completely ridiculous. They could release games that only produced sound at decible levels 10% of people can hear if they wanted to... it is their decision.

But what else should he do if they ignore him? Sony can certainly do what they want but ignoring people who are willing to pay isn't very clever.
He is simply trying to change something.

BTW, visually impaired doesn't necessarily mean someone is blind.

Yeah I know, but still, Everquest II, why that game. As the article states WOW allows mods, why not switch to that game?

BTW I'm going to start emailing Ford, when I go to bone my gf in my car there just isn't that much room, I sometime get a cramp and have to stop, then when I go to bone my gf again she says there is no way. :: If they don't write back I'll sue.

I am assuming they think the visually impaired market is too small to be worth the bother, which it probably is, and that is well within their rights.

The lawsuit depends on the game being a public place basically, but the subscription charge makes that completely false, if not the fact it is not a place, but a video game.

You're still missing the point. Have you even thought that maybe filing a lawsuit is like last attempt to get SOE's attention?

So, tell me what's technical support or customer service for? To help people with their problems or needs, right? So, how come they, according to article, ignored many requests from him? Something's not right. Of course, unless he went ape**** and wrote nasty letters to them.

Here's some facts you might want to know.

About 314 million people are visually impaired worldwide, 45 million of them are blind.

My guess, maybe 1/3 of them play games (blind people do play games as well with special equipments). Still a lot of numbers.

I think you're letting your emotions blind your reasoning on the issue.

How many requests for different features do you think Sony receives every day? Are they supposed to respond to him and no one else because he's blind? Does that make all the other requests less deserving?

The fact is, Sony probably receives thousands of requests for a wide array of features and his were treated like the rest: they were ignored. Games are not designed for the masses although some believe they are. Games serve a niche market and when you start trying to please everyone, you end up adding lots of features that cost the company a lot of money and benefit a small group of people.

From a business standpoint, it makes no sense whatsoever to try and accommodate everyone.

Here's a crazy idea... how about he stops buying Sony products and giving his money to a company that ignores him.

What the hell is wrong with people today? Just because something bothers them they go and sue everyone they can. It's ridiculous.

I think you're missing everyone else's point.

Lawsuits are not supposed to be used to "get someone's attention". They tie up court time over bull**** issues. A legitimate response to this issue would be to boycott Sony and inform other associations for the visual and/or hearing impaired and get them to boycott Sony as well. That would be a legitimate response. Not a lawsuit.

Not if he wants to change something in general and when they totally ignore him.
