Sony Computer Entertainment?s request for a temporary restraining order against Connectix and its Virtual Game Station emulation software has been rejected by a US federal district court.
Sony filed its lawsuit earlier this year (see VNU Newswire, 29 Januuary, 1999), alleging that Connectix had infringed its copyright and intellectual property, in an attempt to stop the firm selling software that enables Sony Playstation games to run on Apple Macs.
Connectix previewed its $50 emulation software at Macworld Expo early last month, and started selling it soon after, but claimed it sold out.
Roy McDonald, Connectix?s president and chief executive, said: "Virtual Game Station gives Macintosh owners more games to choose from and PlayStation owners more choice in where they play their games, and we will continue to fight for the customer's right to this choice."
Virtual Game Station runs on G3 Power Macs, including the iMac, but the software does not support all of Playstation?s 350 plus games. It does run one of the most popular, Tomb Raider, however.
