Microsoft has filed a lawsuit against rumble company Immersion for not living up to parts of it deal.
Immersion sued Microsoft and Sony in 2002 but Microsoft settled in 2003. That's the main reason why 360's pad rumbles and PS3's doesn't. It cost Microsoft $26 million for licensing rights and they even ended up with a stake in the rumble company. Microsoft has now said that Immersion hasn't lived up "other terms of that deal".
"We entered into a binding licensing agreement with Immersion and are seeking to have that agreement honored," Microsoft Associate General Counsel Steve Aeschbacher said in a statement. "Microsoft licenses technology both in and out and relies on these agreements to be honored and enforced. Our request to the court is that all companies and industry partners should play by the same rules and that the binding agreement we signed with Immersion be honored."
