Immersion, a small, California-based developer of digital touch technologies, claimed Sony Computer Entertainment infringed on its technology that makes a game controller vibrate in sync with actions in games, the Japanese game maker said.

    They also won a lawsuit against the XBox for the same reason.

    Microsoft however only paid $26 million as a result – And then went and bought 10% of the company for another $6 million.
