Connectix President Speaks on Sony Deal
11:58 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Yesterday we brought you word that Connectix Software had reached a settlement with Sony in regards to their Playstation emulator, Virtual Game Station. Today MacCentral pulled aside Roy McDonald, president of Connectix to talk more about how the deal will impact the company. In the interview, McDonald notes the 'joint technology agreement' reached extends beyond the Playstation, and may be a benefit; especially since the VGS was nearing the end of its realistic shelf life. Here's an excerpt:
The silver lining here, said McDonald, is that his company has access to new resources that he hopes will result in new Connectix products in the months and years to come. We're glad to see Connectix is happy with the result, and we wish them the best in their further Mac endeavors. For those that want to pick up the VGS though, make sure to do so before June 30. After that date, Connectix will only be supplying support for VGS owners. We'll keep you informed as any new details surrounding the Sony deal emurge.

"As part of this joint technology agreement, we gain access to technical resources at Sony that we've never had before," said McDonald. "And we've also gained new cash resources that will enable us to fund new projects."
