Microsoft and Datal: If the pad looks the same, we’ll sue you

By Alan Ng - Apr 2, 2010

It has been confirmed that Microsoft are suing Datal over their Xbox 360 wireless controller, which Microsoft say infringes on one of their patents. Basically stating that Datal copied them.

As reported from VG247, Microsoft are now seeking compensation, royalty payments as well as an injunction stopping further sales of Datal’s controller.

At the moment, you can currently pick up a ‘Wildfire’ and ‘Turbo’ Datal Xbox 360 controller for under $40 in the US.
