Sony steals everything.
Analog control sticks from Nintendo
Controller vibration from Immersion (already sued for)
Motion sensing from Nintendo (they pretty much copied the Wiimote and put it in a different package)
Reflective coating from Target
Let me guess, they copied the D-Pad too? How about copying the concept of the controller?
MS copied control sticks from Nintendo, are you *****ing about MS? Nope.
MS copied controller vibration from Immersion, are you *****ing about MS? Nope.
Motion sensing, I see where you come from, but the two are completely different.
The reflective coating is old news btw, and HERE is a good post about it from a PS3 oriented forum, but from what I can tell, its not biased and actually explains it well. I don't know where to find info to back it up, but it does explain it well.
