Haptics Company Sues Valve, Claims Patent Infringement

Home » Video Games » Haptics Company Sues Valve, Claims Patent Infringement

It never fails. Remember when the PlayStation 3 was released without the “Dual Shock” because of the suit from Immersion? I certainly do, and they are back for the Steam Deck.

While I have my issues with the Steam Deck, I wonder if Immersion is simply a patent troll. While I did not have a great experience with the Steam Deck, many people have.

The Immersion CEO stated:

While we are pleased to see that Valve recognizes the value of haptics and has adopted our haptic technology in its handheld video game and AR/VR systems as part of its effort to generate revenue streams through the sales of hardware, games, and other virtual assets, and advertisements, it is important for us to protect our business against infringement of our intellectual property to preserve the investments that we have made in our technology
