Ohio-based Impulse Technologies is suing Microsoft for allegedly infringing on patents that it holds for technology that tracks users movements.

The lawsuit claims;

“wide variety of games where the movement of a player is tracked in three dimensions … and certain exercise games where the motion of the player is tracked to effect movement of a virtual avatar, and the exertion of the user is monitored, including where the tracking of the player is done by use of a camera.”

Eight game makers including EA and SEGA are also named in the suit.
