Full details of the Sony and Immersion settlement

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.
