    Lawsuits

    Sony is getting sued again. This time over Blue Ray itself! I think these types of law suits are ridiculous. I remember people trying to sue Nintendo for the Wii remote. People who don't even design game consoles. No one should be sued for something this lame. Opinions?

    yes its true.

    have you not played a PS3?

    its ok if you havent, but if you do, you'll realize the controllers are very light because of the absence of a rumble feature.

    Translation of the article:

    Some company is trying to milk money out of the following companies behind blue ray:
    Apple Computer, Inc.
    Dell Inc.
    Hewlett Packard Company
    Hitachi, Ltd.
    LG Electronics Inc.
    Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd.
    Mitsubishi Electric Corporation
    Pioneer Corporation
    Royal Philips Electronics
    Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.
    Sharp Corporation
    Sony Corporation
    Sun Microsystems, Inc.
    TDK Corporation
    Thomson Multimedia
    Twentieth Century Fox
    Walt Disney Pictures
    Warner Bros. Entertainment

    This is what the company claims is their patent:
    "that products marketed under the Blu-ray name infringe on a patent it owns for reflective layer materials in optical discs. The patent addresses what Target called a need for specific types of silver-based alloys with the advantages (but not the price) of gold. According to the patent, the alloys are also more resistant to corrosion than pure silver."

    This is traslated to: "you used a reflective metal that we thought up". Which is like suing a company for using plywood or plastic. If you take a blend of oak wood and cedar wood, and make a plywood out of it for better support, then if someone claims they own the rights for that wood mixture you can get sued.

    Its rediculous and this lawsuit will fail. The Judge will laugh and the case will be over.

    I'm still furious about the lady who spilled hot coffee on her lap and won the lawsuit. I hope the judge throws it out. Sony fought hard to put everything into the Blue Ray technology.

    I don't like idiots. But even more than that I don't like people who reward idiots. Geesh Shift, you can't comprehend something that simple?

Do you have a change of mind of the ps3? I mean why dont you show at least that you have a SET to tell the truth about Sony, and stop being in denial!!
