* Immersion v. Sony: "We've won"

Printer-friendly page Print this story   Email this to a friend
Immersion's Prez gave Gamasutra an interview regarding their lawsuit against Sony for using force feedback (Immersion's got a patent) and the PS3's dropping of the tech:

?If what they?re saying is in fact the reason why [the controller will not have vibration], I?ve offered them numerous solutions to the problem,? Viegas said in an interview Tuesday. ?I don?t believe it?s a very difficult problem to solve, and Immersion has experts that would be happy to solve that problem for them.?

The solutions offered by Immersion, however, would hinge upon Sony?s acceptance of the current litigation, and no word has been given as to Sony?s plans on the matter. Viegas says that Immersion ?would have no qualms helping Sony with their problem, if indeed it is a problem,? but the company would have to cease its appeal against the current injunction.
