Now, I was really unsure where to post this, because it deals with a real-life issue, and a game. warthog_screen001.jpg The pic on the top is the Peugeot Hogger. A concept car, that has yet to reach the production stages. Below, is the Warthog, the famous vehicle copyrighted to Microsoft, and Bungie. I suspect, although it is a great looking car, that if it ever does reach the production stage, Microsoft will file a law suite. There are more astounding pictures of the Peugeot Hogger on the net. Simply go to Google Image search, and type in "Peugeot Hogger". It is a fine car though :bows:

I think that you have posted in the correct forum myself (although there are others in which this would fit as well). :nodding:

This actually looks to be a hybrid of some sort between an existing car (perhaps a Chrystler) and a dune buggy. The overall shape does indeed ressemble that of the Warthog, and I would not necessarily put it past Microsoft or Bungie to at least speak up if the vehicle is indeed put on the market. I would have no complaints though.

:moved: Let's say I move it to The Pub meanwhile I see if it's more about the real-life issue or the game. :)

BS lol. They will lose that case so bad, it wont be even funny. They have no proof it was copied from it. Just because the shape looks like it, it doesnt mean shit. Thats like.. The first person to design a stick shaped pen sues everybody else for making the same shape, different ink and color pen. After all the halo car was made based on fantesy and a real car. I dont know how the court system works here in the US, but in other countries MS wont have a chance to win such a case.

They sued China for using Linux instead of Windows. Saying windows is safer because its made by them, and that nobody knows who made linux.
