Sony removes thorn in its side

Bleem! is dead!
PlayStation emulation company Bleem! is no more. The company’s website, usually a-buzz with work in progress news, now just displays a picture of Sonic the Hedgehog standing by a grave, holding a flower and crying.

Bleem! was a tenacious little company that you had to respect for taking Sony on head-to-head. It made life somewhat difficult for itself by manufacturing PlayStation emulation software for Dreamcast and PC. Cherry-picking the best titles for Dreamcast, including Gran Turismo 2, Tekken 3 and Metal Gear Solid, made Sony really, really angry. Sony eventually said that it would withdraw support from retail outlets stocking Bleem! products.

And that was that.
