“After one major game console manufacturer included motion control in their new console, the other manufacturers followed suit and introduced similar technology over the next few years.”

The phrase “to follow suit” originally meant “to play a card from the same suit as the previous card” in a card game. If something is “not your strong suit” it means you are not very good at it, but originally it meant you didn’t have good cards in that suit.


「Follow suit」はもともとトランプを使ったゲームで、同じスーツ(絵柄)のカードを出すという意味でした。「not your strong suit 強いスーツではない」は苦手という意味ですが、もともとはそのスーツの強いカードを持っていないという意味でした。
