    lol, I should have known....

    I read this article in the paper this morning and came here directly only to find it being discussed already.

    My only question is whether Sony can afford the case? Is $90million and liscencing fee's a big deal for them?

    i find it really stupid, but that's where stealing gets u. so i say make them pay. i guarentee they ain't got the brain power to make their own vibro technology. sony has to deal with their own dumbass stunts.

    this is totally off subject but i'm saying it anyways. raven, i reallly enjoy ur sig and avatar. lewis black is the ****in best.

    you'd be surprised, I've seen odder things happen in copyright cases. You might be surprised and see them end up coming out unscathed. It all depends on interpretations. My guess is they'll pay something, wether it'll be as large a chunk as this last ruling was we'll have to see. But honestly its not exactly something I'd care to keep up with over the years lol

    for a company 90 million is a loss no matter how big it is, that means thats 90 million dollars in profit gone, every settlement affects quarterly earnings and gains that the company releases to stockholders and the FCC, meaning that if a company posts a negative gain in the market, the market goes down. The stock market is very elastic with earnings statements by company's

    maybe immerson was waiting for Sony to make a really good profit off the system then sue for as much as possible. Sounds like smart thinking to me, probaly why they've waited so long. But to stop selling altogether just seems a bit extreme. Oh well, I'll all be staightened out eventually.

    So I guess this puts a halt on the PS3 being released as well seeing as it will be using the Dual Shock technlegy

    HAHAA.. I feel ya there. I'm in the same position. Before I fixed it, I wouldn't play anything, now it plays DVD's and brand new PS2 DVD games. It seriously is on life support. No worries for me yet, within the month, I'm sure to snag one for myself. Good luck kiddo >_<
