Playstation Sales Halted, Sony Pwnt Hard?

Anyone else hear/read about this?

"According to Japan Today, the U.S. District Court in Oakland, California, has ordered Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. and its U.S. unit to pay $90.7 million in damages to Immersion Corp. for patent infringement over controllers used with PlayStation game consoles. In the ruling handed down Thursday, the federal court also ordered Sony Computer Entertainment and Sony Entertainment America Inc. to stop selling the PlayStation and PlayStation 2 game consoles using Dualshock controllers as well as more than 40 game software products."

Why would that mean the PS3 is coming out sooner?

This just may be the moron in me talking(which is proboly is cause i jsut got off a 7 hour flight) But they cant sell some of theyre old consoles/controlers without remaking it with different things (whats the other 40 products?) So they say "**** it, why make new stuff for something that will be obsolete in a few months." And then they get started on finalizing the ps3.

Again, I do realize Im proboly in a moronic state.

OOOOOHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!

BBBBUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN! !!!!!!!!!!!!!
awsome, so, how long is it till they can sell again?
This can speed up the release of the ps3 because they just lost the ps2, and the dualshock.

More than likely, they have already fixed the infringement, and they will not have to halt sales because they are already replaced. Unless that is, they are stupid

do you realize that the ps3 will have an all new core to it? How would redesigning a part on a controller be easier for them than designing all new technology for a new system that doesnt have a definite lineup of games set or a price, etc? It wont effect anything

Sony just has to PAY DAMAGES on previous sales, and start acknowledging the patent like everyone else that makes controllers has been.

It's not the end of the world, it's not going to change the PS3 launch AT ALL, and like some have already said, it has probably already been taken care of.

They said the court ordered sales of ps1,ps2 with dualshocks to be stopped. So they need a new controller.
