To celebrate this fantastic news they’re offering the game at a discount price of $0.99/£0.59 from now till Monday 10th May.

Visit the Game’s App Store page to take advantage of the bargain price.

UPDATE:

If you’re not seeing the correct price in iTunes, it’s probably because their servers haven’t updated yet. The price should appear soon.

    Edge’s name has been changed to “Mobigame’s Edge”, at least in the US. Could Timmy still be putting up a fight?

    I didn’t notice this mentioned here, but the drama continues.

    Evidently Langdell didn’t forward his last two replies that were posted to the USPTO site to EA’s lawyers, and actually filed his last reply after the date due. EA’s motion to strike is hillarious, and concludes with the following bazinga.

    “In addition, given the apparent delivery problems associated with Registrant’s mail service, Petitioners respectfully request that the Board order Registrant to serve all papers in this proceeding by a means that incorporates electronic tracking and delivery confirmation, such as Express Mail or Federal Express.”

      It’s obvious that with Summer 2010 around the corner, the entire development staff of EDGE Games is now busy crunching to ship “MIRRORS”, “Bobby Bearing Remix” and “Firebirds Remix”. Can’t we cut Tim Langdell (and his hard-working team of designers, programmers and artists) some slack for not replying to EA’s lawyers in a timely manner?

        Yeah, I forgot about that. I can’t wait to purchase some finely crafted/embroidered EDGE merchandise too. I’m totally going to have my EDGE cap and EDGE t-shirt on when I’m playing Bobby Bearing Remix and Mirrors this summer. I’m so prepared to be amazed… like a sad native man from a 70′s tv commercial.

    Langdell has dropped the Lawsuit bomb on EA. He is asking that the case against his Edge marks be suspended pending the resolution of his federal lawsuit.

    The Lawsuit is a long read, but Langdell is effectively requesting all of EA’s profits from any Mirror’s Edge title or licensing as well as damages for “brand confusion”, Mark infringement, court costs, and ‘lost profits’.

    He is also asking that Punitive Damages be levied against EA to discourage future suits, and to have EA barred from selling anything related to Mirror’s Edge through the course of the trial. Finally, he’s demanding a Jury trial. I guess he figures he can muck up the case against his peers more effectively.

    If this goes to court, I hope EA destroys him.

    …He honestly wants a jury trial? I guess he really is that arrogant.

    I always laugh when I see the word “confusion” in Tim’s complaints. Confusion to what? Since the 80′s and up until Mobigames Edge saga, no one has ever heard of “The Edge”.

    If this does go to court, I hope that all the FACTS from this particular website can be presented – to show that He’s only pretending to have a legitimate company, and in doing so has pulled underhanded tricks including stealing artwork and still using an image from a television commercial.

    It shouldn’t be too hard to make the court see that he’s trying to fool everyone (albeit poorly) and that his only true source of income seems to be from continual lawsuits and possible royalties from smaller companies that he’s threatened.

    Plus, as said before, there should be stiffer trademark rules. It shouldn’t be just to SHOW that you are a legitimate company and deserve the trademarks, you should be able to PROVE that you are legitimate and at least be selling a minimum number of product annually. So for software, if you can’t move more than 5000 copies per year, you’re too small to hold a trademark. It’s going to have to happen eventually, since more and more companies are emerging. You can’t have someone running a hobby business from his garage who’s selling only 5 copies of his product per year cost the courts time and money by holding up the legal system and continually costing larger legitimate companies money and time.

    I’m just wondering why Mr. Langdell keeps doing this. This website in particular has exposed him. It’s only a matter of time, before he really gets in hot water and finds himself destitute. And I kind of wish him ill will at this point.. that he loses his battle after all and then all the other companies and individuals that he’s either threatened or ripped off come after him with lawsuits and continually drag him to court and drain his pockets of whatever spare change he has left.

    There should also be a law against claiming against appending Dr. to your name when clearly you are not and never will have a doctorate of any kind.

    I’ve not seen a copy of the lawsuit as of yet, though I’m looking forward to reading it. I have to think that Langdell is not a very smart man at this point.

    It should be obvious to everybody reading this site or following this story closely that this is nothing more than a shabby, last ditch effort to delay and further obfuscate the USPTO so that he doesn’t lose his “world famous” Edge trademarks. (That, or he’s truly delirious and believes he can win this.)

    But here’s the fun part of this little development. He’s played right into EA’s hands. This is exactly what EA has wanted. If this goes to a trial of any sort, there’s going to be a discovery period. EA can easily find justification to subpoena any of the following records during discovery:

    –Edge corporate income for the past 10+ years (a corporate entity must file income tax as such).
    –Number of employees and records of such employees of Edge Games, Inc. over the past 10+ years.
    –Sales records of games published by Edge Games, Inc. over the past 10+ years.
    –Etc. You get the idea.

    There should be more than a mountain of information found in this matter to prove that Edge Games, Inc. is nothing but a sham of a company, that Tim Langdell is nothing more than a scam artist, and that he deserves nothing less than losing his copyrights and being taken to the legal woodshed.

    Game.

    Set.

    Match.

    EDGE Games is now claiming licensing rights over the publication of Cross Edge.

    If this goes to federal court. Is there a way to find out who all the lawyers (except for Langdell’s) and the presiding judge are? It would be nice to warn them in advance and show what Langdell is really up to. Perhaps, if the judge knew that Langdell was going to tie up the legal system just so that he could delay the inevitable and hold onto his trademarks longer, he would probably throw the case out and possibly have Langdell investigated. All Langdell has, are technicalities. He had a company once that was doing something, but now is nothing. However, his company I guess is still an official company because of unfortunate technicalities of the legal system. Apparently you don’t have to be selling or distributing anything and a mailbox can serve as the business’ location.

    Why does it seem that everyone who knows what’s really going on and what he’s really doing can’t seem to do anything about it legally. I don’t mean that as in “nobody’s putting in the effort”, I mean simply that none of us here on this website for instance are lawyers or have true legal power to intervene. All we can do is investigate to the fullest legal power we have as citizens of our countries (so no hacking or gaining information through illegal means), submit what we found to the right parties.. and beyond that.. hope that those parties who do have true legal power can do something.

    Could we petition the federal court to have his case thrown out? A petition sometimes does get attention and thus all the evidence that for instance the authors and commentors of this blog found might then be reviewed and have substantial weight against Langdell’s claims for legitimate rights of his trademarks.

      The chaosedge stuff is already referenced in evidence in the cancellation proceedings before the TTAB.

      A petition won’t really add anything at this stage, as the people who need to know this stuff know already. It is just that there is a whole bunch of legal process to go through – last thing any of us would want is for Langdell to grounds for appeal through lack of due process.

    I’m preparing to be amazed by Tim Langdell’s forthcoming demonstration to a panel of jurors that he was “flooded” by people who confused “MIRRORS a game by EDGE” with “Mirror’s Edge”. That alone makes me sadder than a Crying Indian in a Teenage Wasteland.

    Did anyone see this:
    “Children are our future.” Edge(R) Donates 10% of its profits to charities and institutions for the benefit of children in need, at-risk children and sick children.

    First… HA HA HA HA HA *choke* HA HA HA. So 10% of his profits from January 2009 to now… from the only copies he’s sold (to members of chaosedge) can barely buy ONE child a SINGLE bowl of soup.

    Second… What a sick, dirty, underhanded thing to do to make your business look like it’s successful. Only businesses that are successful enough can substantially donate to charities. But, to use that for the wrong reasons.. even if just words on a website… Tim Langdell is a real piece of shit. Normally I don’t succumb to using foul language, but in this case it’s suitable.

      I especially like how he doesn’t name any specific charity or institution.

      It’s ironic, since it might actually be true marking the first time Langdell told the truth. 10% of 0 is still 0 XD

    Party time. We all knew it was coming the moment he took this to a jury trial, but EA files a vicious countersuit against Langdell/Edge.

      And the real kicker … between the suit and the countersuit the USPTO registered the ‘Mirror’s Edge’ mark to EA.

      Langdell’s attempt to wriggle out of that one was swiftly denied.

      Now, anyone here think Langdell will succeed in a case against EA for using their own registered trademark?

      Thought not.

    Here is the link to some of the latest escapades that phisheep was refereing to. Nothing too exciting other than the USPTO slapping Tim down a bit. If I didn’t know any better, it almost seems like the clerk involved in overseeing this stuff where Tim is concerned is getting tired of this crap.

    i always preferred the virtual offices type games, they were a lot more entertaining than edge. Then again that’s probably because I could never get the hang of edge where as the aforementioned twaddle currently occupying my public trasport hours could be conquered by a coma patient…unto each his own

    Quote from Langdell’s injunction against EA:
    “Between 2003 and 2009, Edge sold over 11,000 units of boxed, pre-packaged game software and over 45,000 mobile-phone games under the EDGE marks.”

    Tim’s a bit fat liar AND possibly a tax cheat:

    In 2008, Edge (then The Edge Interactive Media, Inc.) was listed as a suspended California corporation.

    Velocity Micro Inc., vs The Edge Interactive Media, Inc., vs Best Buy, Inc.
