Sony and Connectix kiss and make up.
Yesterday Sony officially dropped their lawsuit against Connectix regarding their Virtual Game Station for PC and MAC. But why? Well it appears that Sony thought it would be smarter for them to purchase all of Connectix's emulation technology, so in that in the future if Connectix wants to develop something, they have to ask Uncle Sony for their permission. Under this joint agreement, that also means that any products under the Connectix name will be endorsed and licensed by Sony, which just makes the product even more reliable, neat huh? The Connectix Virtual Game Station will still be selling up until June 30 for the PC and MAC.
"We look forward to significant advances in emulation technology as a result of our cooperation with Connectix, who owns excellent technology in this field," Shinichi Okamoto, senior vice president of research and development for Sony Computer Entertainment, stated.
"Our new agreement with SCE gives us the resources to move rapidly into a wide range of exciting new applications for our core emulation and virtual machine technologies," Roy McDonald, president of Connectix Corporation, said. "We believe that this collaboration can lead to improved development tools, innovative consumer products, and productive enterprise solutions."
