Sony FINALLY legally allowed to sell dualshock pads...

…$150 million later.

Microsoft own a significant chunk of Immersion iirc. :wink:

IIRC Microsoft was sued for the same reason, and instead settled out of court by purchasing ownership shares, and making some other deals. SONY would not bargain and tried to fight them in court, and predictably lost.

SONY has been making a lot of the same mistakes Nintendo did when they were on top. They still haven’t figured out they’re not invincible, even though they’re losing the current gen console wars after pricing themselves out of the race. How many previous game systems failed because they were too expensive? A dozen or so?
