So we know Sony and Immersion kissed and made up. What wasn’t stated though was how much this has cost Sony. Now we know:
Sony Corp. has agreed to pay Immersion Corp. $150.3 million in ending a patent infringement suit in which the latter company claimed the consumer electronics giant used its technology in the PlayStation videogame console.
That’s not all.
In a separate, but related agreement, Sony has licensed Immersion technology for $22.5 million, the spokeswoman said.
That’s a lot of money to pay for rumble. Hopefully, Sony will learn to turn their image around and make up this loss.
