A judge ruled in favor of Sony in a $500 million lawsuit related to its controller communications

A US judge has ruled that Sony did not infringe another company's patented technology with its PlayStation hardware, specifically regarding how consoles and consoles communicate.

As detailed by GamesIndustry.bizGenuine Enabling Technology (GET) first filed a complaint against Sony in 2017, alleging that the PlayStation manufacturer had infringed its '730 patent, titled “Method and apparatus for producing a combined data stream and retrieving the relevant user input stream.” Of which”. At least one input signal.'

Among the many claims raised in this case, the central point was how to connect PlayStation controllers and controllers. Now, as we all know, the DualSense communicates with the PS5 by sending a separate signal at a “slow-changing frequency” for the button inputs and another higher-frequency signal for the motion control input. GET's assertion was that no device was capable of receiving both signals at the same time until the problem was resolved by the '730 patent.
