Microsoft Sued Over Kinect Technology


In a bit of legal news, Microsoft has been sued by an Ohio-based Technology company for allegedly "infringing on patents" that they hold for technology that Microsoft uses for Kinect.

Impulse Technologies, the company suing Microsoft, released the following statement regarding the lawsuit:

"wide variety of games where the movement of a player is tracked in three dimensions ... and certain exercise games where the motion of the player is tracked to effect movement of a virtual avatar, and the exertion of the user is monitored, including where the tracking of the player is done by use of a camera."

Along with Microsoft, several game studios were sued for stealing technology to use in their games including EA and seven others.
