    Following just hours after Apple issued an aggressive lawsuit against SCEA it has been announced that production of SONY's next generation handheld the Playstation VITA will temporarily be suspended. The injunction pertains to the Vita Home Menu XMB interface, an interface which Apple claims "is a flagrant and shameless imitation of our iOS interface". An Apple representative was also quoted as saying "The similarities between the two are astonishing, when I first saw a Vita being used by a friend of mine I thought he was using his ipad. When I found out it was a PS Vita I spent the next 72 hours vomiting in disgust!"

    It is expected that all Playstation Vita's will be removed from retailers shelves and de-listed from online catalogues within the next 48 hours. While retailers such as Wallmart have already stated that the PS Vita will be unavailable to purchase from any of their stores for the foreseeable future.

    In a disturbing turn of events it has also been reported that hundreds of Sony employees have gathered outside Apple stores worldwide in protest. And accompanied by groups of Lawyers have begun hurtling themselves kamikaze style at Apple store shop doors in an attempt to counter sue Apple for damages. It has been reported that several hundred individual lawsuits have already been filed within the last few hours already. One eye witness has been quoted as saying "Shit was crazy yo. It was like that scene at the end of I am Legend or some shit, yo. I could barely concentrate on my shoplifting dawg 4real."

    Sony have already condemned and distanced themselves from these actions and have said that they will ferociously fight their case. "We hope to see the Vita back in production and back on sale within the next seven days" SCEA president Jack Tretton tweeted. And in an interview minutes ago he admitted that "I have never seen I am Legend, Independence Day was really good though."

    I'm positive this will get cleared up eventually. Even if they have to pay some big fee, it's a lot better than having an entire venture closed down.

    Well I seriously hope it's cleared up, I just bought one and the last thing I want is for the system to die because of some bullshit lawsuit.

    EDIT: I can't express my rage enough. I must edit my post to express it.

    Apple are the cancer of the world. They kill us all. They rid us of our most beloved possessions and for what? Their own selfish desires.

    iFish, I blame you, goddamn prick. I will find you.

    That's just retarded, But hey, then that means the sale price for used PS Vita increases dramatically depending on the length they're out of production.

    Too early for what?

    This isn't funny guys, I just bought this thing and now it's going to be useless!

    Also, p1ngy, you need to change your source, you put Wikipedia instead of the proper source.

    Fu*k off, Apple. I never knew you're harboring braindead representatives. I had my suspicions though.
