    From the sounds of it, Valve did this intentionally? Well, I guess $4mil is less than the $6mil MS paid!

    Also isn't this basically the same concept as the F1 sequential gear shifter? You'd think whoever has the patent to that might consider suing Corsair.

    It does sound like patent trolling for sure, does corsair even have any controllers with this concept, or any controller at all?
