DualShock ... the MIRACULOUS AND HIGHLY ADVANCED technology that causes a controller to vibrate, is used in both the XBox and PS2. While Microsoft settled out of court for 26 million, Sony did not and was found guilty of naughties. They must pay the DualShock people 90 million dollars and halt production of the PS2, controllers, and all games that use the DualShock technology. Sony appealed and during this process they may still manufacture this stuff with a fee paid to the DualShock people.

Ok, this is complete bullshit. Causing a controller to vibrate in response to an imbedded PS2 function games can invoke is hardly amazing or difficult to create. I am a team consisting of any Computer Science and Computer Engineering bachelor could make this happen. Ridiculous.

If you have the time, knowledge, and desire enough you can create almost anything. Take the X-Shox Controller for an example.

This story originally was posted almost 2 years ago, so everyone probably saw it... but still... thought it might be a worthwhile look back since we're on the topic of controllers and non-secretive technology.

Apparently gamers don't give a shit about spelling either...

Well, he is from Elkton afterall.

At any rate, it's not like Dual Shock was the first company to do it, either. There was the rumble pack for the N64 and that was someone else. Hardly proprietary knowledge.

Some of us are interested in the industry itself, not just the games.

Others just get their rocks off being catty bitches.

I care about money, I care about money a lot, especially the 67 bucks you cost me this month.

No, he decided he didn't want to live at 71 and waited until four days before he was supposed to move in to let us know. So now I need to cover 1/3 of his $200 rent which is $67. Give or take

You should have given him a "decide by now" date and make sure that a deposit check was given on said date. Problem solved.

I think Spell Check just committed suicide.
