Word on the street is that Sony is going through a lawsuit. According to claims filed by Next Generation, Sony has violated a patent filed in October 1991 by Next Generation for their Cell Processor. Next Generation filed the patent 5,056,000 which describes a Cell Processor capable of “Synchronized Parallel Processing with Shared Memory”.
