Datel sued by Sony over for 'Lite Blue Tool'


Datel had intended on manufacturing a battery which would make the PSP Brite susceptible to hackers.The product never found release, however, and many were left wondering why. According to Portable Video Gamer, Datel cannot manufacture the battery due to a lawsuit in progress from Sony Computer Entertainment.

We're glad that SCEE is taking a more aggressive approach to PSP piracy. The causes of piracy and its effect on PSP software development are debated quite frequently in our comments section. We stand by the belief that curbing piracy on our system is the best way to get the system back to its former glory. Stopping devices like this from entering the market is a key step in Sony's new efforts in making PSP a viable platform once again.

[Thanks, David B.!]
