Gaikai sued over alleged patent infringement

T5 Labs is attempting to sue cloud gaming firm Gaikai in the Delware courts. (Gaikai, Industry)

LOL! Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water... This will keep the Gaikai profile high on many sites though, so it's actually good news and great promotion. Thank you T5 Labs and the person who posted it here.

Uh oh! I bet this is a plot to somehow destroy Sony! I just know it, this can't be a coincident.
sikbeta  +   1019d ago
Or maybe there is actually a patent infringement and not some conspiracy against Sony...
insomnium2  +   1019d ago
Yeah sikbeta. Might just be something like that.

It wouldn't be no conspiracy ben if someone was set to destroy Sony. All the people who actually aren't noobs to this website knows how things were in here in 2006-2008.

Yeah yeah you are going to reply with that same "blah blah ancient history blah show me teh proofz" but since it was clearly YOU who brought up the word "conspiracy" which was used quite heavily back in the first few years of this gen it was actually YOU who brought all this "ancient history" as a topic of discussion unintentionally or not.

I am in no way obligated to show you proof of anything. Maybe you should just try and keep your mouth shut on a website you know nothing about/just recently aquainted yourself with if you can't take the heat hmmm?

@Sikbeta

There may be a patent infringement, who knows, it didn't stop Gribble from planting the seeds of disbelief.

@Insomnium

You are so boring it's truly hilarious. No one is bringing up ancient history, I am talking to Gribble and he knows exactly what I am referring too. You on the other hand can't wait to write down 2006-2008 so you make up sh*t to justify your rants. But let me get it out for you:
Back in the days the Xbox fans use Metacritic, say PS3 is teh Doomz, say PS3 has no games....uuuum PS3 has no crosschat, PSN is inferior to Live....uuum...hmmmm anything else you want to keep digging up and reliving CONSTANTLY Insomnium?

Did I get it all, I mean me being such a "noob" on this site I can't possibly imagine all the hardships and trouble you had to endure way back in the good old days of 2006 - 2008. I was just a wee youngin suckin on my momma's tit oblivious to this website and the goings on of this here internets.

HA! You can't show me proof because you have none. Which is why I own you and father you every time son. Now go fetch me the kettle and put back the whipping stick, I'm done here.

And you see how it helped Samsung. Galaxy S3 are selling crazy. They just announced the Galaxy S3 Mini.
Chitown71291  +   1019d ago
Youre really proud of the Galaxy S3 mini?

Samsung is a cheap company who makes cheap products. They have no software that is innovative and mooch off of others for it. In the gaming (sony is a leader), music (sony is the biggest), and movie world if sony fell their would probably be less in terms of what we get. If samsung fell no one would care. Samsung and apple are really bad for the gaming industry and so for that they can go die.

Oh my word, you can patent any group of words and find some global infringement. Aholes!
badz149  +   1019d ago
if that's patented
then will Nvidia get sued too?

and this is too vague just like Apple's slide to unlock patent! seriously, this kind of STUPID and DUMB patents really need to go!

patents should be something smart and bright people are getting for their IP but why is it so STUPID most of the times?

Sueing is the new way of b!tching out!

Research and development company. Their efforts seem to be on technologies typically associated with cloud gaming / computing.

I googled it... wasn't hard either, funny that. :P
