Virtual Game Station 1.1 Released Despite Lawsuit -- Connectix Corporation has shipped Virtual Game Station 1.1, an update to the company's Sony PlayStation emulator, introduced at Macworld Expo in San Francisco. Few details were available regarding the changes in version 1.1, although Connectix did say that they've "enhanced compatibility and functionality," plus added additional security technology to prevent use of pirated PlayStation games. Most likely because of a lawsuit brought by Sony, it's been impossible to purchase the $49 Virtual Game Station other than at the show, but Connectix's online store expects availability by 06-Feb-99. Those who managed to purchase Virtual Game Station 1.0 at Macworld Expo can download a free 828K updater. [ACE]
