Sony and Connectix Set Court Date
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The battle between Sony and Connectix over the PlayStation emulator Virtual GameStation continues, and once again they will meet before a judge. MacCentral is reporting that the two will meet again in court next March to attempt to resolve the issues surrounding this emulator. In case you're wondering what the fuss is about, here's a clip:

Connectix first unveiled VGS to crowds at Macworld Expo in San Francisco in January of 1999. The software makes Macintoshes able to play a variety of popular games designed to work on the Sony PlayStation, a popular home video game console. At the time, Connectix was the first company to release a commercial Sony PlayStation emulator for personal computers.
Check out the article for more of the history behind this legal battle. March of 2001 is quite some time away, but we are sure the entire emulation community is watching this case closely, as it may have implications for the future of console and platform emulation.
