Immersion Corporation announces that video peripheral makers Hori and Katana Game Accessories have both licensed rights for advanced vibro-tactile, spinning mass gaming technologies for dedicated portable gaming devices and computer and console video gaming peripherals.

"All our products are built with the strictest standard of quality," said Yuuki Mizutani, of Hori (U.S.A.). "Rumble technology is one of the key features that makes playing racing and flight simulator games on Hori controllers easier and more realistic." Newly formed Katana Game Accessories has been licensed by Sony Computer Entertainment to produce gaming peripherals and accessories for Sony PlayStation Portable, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation 3 platforms. The soon-to- be released product line includes controllers, memory cards, Bluetooth Technology devices, cabling, and other accessories. Katana has offices in Canada, China, Macao, Singapore, and the U.S.

Founded in 1993, Immersion Corporation is a recognized leader in developing, licensing, and marketing digital touch technology and products. A patent case between Sony and Immersion is the reason why the Sony PS3 did not ship with rumble controllers in the first place.
