While it may be true that most lawsuits are stupid, and this guy is just trying to make a buck, we gotta keep in mind that if he was the first to develope this technology, and he patented it first, then he should get paid, that is the law.


he hasnt developed the technology, thats like saying someone that patented the wheele 3 years ago because nobody in thepast 20 centuries bothered to do so should get paid for suining every car maker in the buisness. hes also gone as far as to state in his patent that even though someone finds another way to come up with using low voltage that its still the same concelpt in spirit of what he patentned and therefore he has the right to sue. right there it tells u he is doing this solely to troll a patent. look at his other patents in history and its the same. hes actually worse than immersion.


if thats true, his lawsuit will not hold up.

It's these stupid companies that patent everything they can think of... which really should be illegal. It should be if you file a patent for something, you actually have to make it or at least prove you had plans to make it in the next few years.

But regardless, that company is sunk, an enemy of my enemy is my friend? Or will MS buy Fenner Investments, settle out of court, and then force Sony to pay up?

As if rumble ways ever useful.  It was a stupid idea.  It WAS.  The controller shakes.  It was almost filthy when it came out and wasn't really an addition to the gameplay overall.  If a game wasn't fun, vibration never MADE it fun.  It didn't make or break any game.....and no game was ruined if it wasn't used.  Big deal. 

Kudos to small company number 57895357 for finding the balls to try and sue for some obscure patent.

Can someone let me smack them all upside the head and call them idiots? Because that's what they are.

If this is true why did they wait this long to sue? Why did they not sue last gen? Or Sony's PSONE?
Chuf it out.
