Sony is back on the offensive against PlayStation emulator developer Connectix after last week dropping its patent violation suit against the software company.

According to US newswires, Sony has refiled the suit. The reason for its behaviour? To bypass "procedural issues that may have been appealable", a Sony spokesman told CNet. Apparently, the move was made on the advice of the trial judge, Charles Legge.

The company was due in court later this week to hear Connectix's motion to have the suit dismissed. The suit alleges Connectix's PlayStation emulator, Virtual Game Station (VGS), infringes 11 Sony patents. The suit, first filed last February, follows a previous filing alleging violation of nine copyrights and trademarks, seven of which were soon after declared to have not been infringed by VGS. ®
