Sony Corp. and Immersion Corp. said they have settled their long-simmering patent dispute over the vibration technology that shakes video game controllers, and will work together to bring the so-called "rumble" function back to PlayStation products.
This technology cost me a sick Civic Si in Need for Speed Underground 2. I remember racing against some Lexus IS 300s and coming around the corner at 145 mph. My car hit the wall and the joystick started vibrating like it was about to explode. I dropped the controller which then caused my beautiful Si to explode.
