Newport Beach, Calif. – Sony has been sued for patent infringement by Newport Beach, Calif.-based Parallel Processing Corporation, which claims the Cell processor that powers the company's PlayStation 3 video game console infringes its 1991 patent.

Sony also faces a number of other patent infringement claims related to Blu-ray PlayStation 3 discs, and security features of the console.

Filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Parallel Processing's lawsuit claims its patented "synchronized parallel processing with shared memory" technology has been infringed by Sony; the company seeks damages, attorney's fees, an injunction against further infringement, and destruction of all products allegedly infringing on its patent.
