I hope there is a war between North and South Koreans now and that LG gets bombed out of existance.

Harsh... Very harsh.


Harsh... what? hoping millions die in a war because Sony were (allegedly) light fingered on the IP of another company.... Very measured response I thought.   

Jesus.   

I am still waiting for all those people that applauded the EU for stopping MS bundling IE to come in and defend this decision too....  I might be waiting a while I think.

Very different cases though, but expected post from you.

You're right, it's a different case, the MS one was more stupid, they didn't actually take anything from anyone in the first place.



 

This could seriously hurt PS3 sales short term in their best region by far. Bad news indeed!



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

and an expected response from you.

very different indeed: 

One was a company bundling free software with its OS, the other is a company (allegedly) stealing intellectual property from a rival....   (I actually doubt this will stick tbh but I cant believe some of the responses in here)

sony's a way bigger company than lg either this is fake or if this is true sony's gonna get them back hard!!

if we see a decline in weekly sales i will belive you

sony sued first, so isn't it more like LG is hitting back hard?

lg is a great company that makes great products, also is second largest tv manufacturs in the world, and if i'm not wrong i believe lg had more profits in their division than sony this year.



Their TV's are inferior to Sony's and one of their CD drives thrashed a disc of mine. Not to mention the fact that Sony NEC drives exceed theirs in quality by leaps and margins.

If you want great and very affordable products, buy Samsung/Sharp.

That's interesting, considering Sony is using LCD panels produced by LG:

http://www.businessweek.com/news/2011-01-06/lg-display-resumes-lcd-panel-supplies-for-sony-tvs.html

Given that the article is dated January 6th 2011, I now expect cheaper and shittier Sony TV's. And the Bravia in our living room was purchased mid 2010, so it's untouched.

Recommended TV's are usually Panasonic/Samsung/Sony/Sharp. Not without a reason.

Must be good enough for Sony if they decide to use them, right?

Besides, Samsung has been supplying the larger LCDs to Sony, since Sony refused to follow the rest of the market into flat panel screens, stubbornly hanging on to their Trinitron CRTs. So, why not just get a Samsung?  They designed the panel, so probably have more knowledge of it's limitations. And for MUCH cheaper price than Sony, to boot.

I'm usually on the side of court decisions, but even I agree that one was beyond unnecessary. It would be like if Nintendo got in trouble for putting wii sports with every wii.

M$ backing LG confirmed??? :(

ROFLOL...

Yikes...this can't be good for sales in PS3 biggest market...Sony had better hope NA case does get another injunction against it as well, otherwise that’s going to be one heck of a hurt locker to be placed in?  This is probably going to cost a pretty penny to be resolved quickly, especially given that comparatively, the patents Sony is suing LG over are probably nowhere as valuable as these that LG are suing Sony over.  Geohotz seems like an afterthought at this point….

So..."confirmed" Sony using other people's tech in their products!

European law is just pathetic tbh.
