Sony is niet blij met de Playstation Emulator van Connectix, waarmee playstation games op de Mac gedraaid kunnen worden (de Mac heeft namelijk niets beters - in tegenstelling tot het superieure pc game platform ). Kun je dus eindelijk gamen op je appel, begint-ie weer te rotten:
Sony Computer Entertainment and its US division, Sony Computer Entertainment America, are suing Connectix over its Mac-based PlayStation emulator, Virtual GameStation (VGS), according to Japanese news agency Kyodo.
[...] Connectix's argument is that the VGS' was engineered without recourse to Sony intellectual property, Sony has no case against it. That said, the company originally suggested that since Sony only makes money from games, not consoles, Connectix could hardly be sued for damages relating to lost earnings.
However, according to the Kyodo report, Sony has finally concluded that it does have a case against the developer. The suit, filed at the San Francisco Federal District Court, alleges Connectix has violated not Sony's intellectual property rights but its copyrights, too.
