    you can find more about this by googling Nintendo Sued for Patent Infringement

    anyways... some of you might be saying oh no! well dont worry, every company that has sued nintendo in the past has been fucked over. so im sure the lawyers are currently in a bring-it-on mood. plus, i dont see how theres much of a case for this anyways. the two controllers are only similar, not the same.

    Not to mention that Nintendo could easily settle out of court. People forget how much loot they rake in in all their ventures combined.

    "The patent describes the device as a "trigger operated device in the nature of a pointing device for use with an electronic system such as a computer."

    Nintendo didn't patent the Duck Hunt gun?

    Three times the assessed damages, and pulling of the Wii off the market? Never going to happen.

    They wouldn't need to to avoid this complaint. Look up "prior art".

    Nintendo stole Tetris as well, they should pay royalties for that.

    Nintendo owes me money too, those bastards. I came up with the idea for a game where you go around and find stuff and kill monsters.

    Sound like anything you've ever played? Exactly. I plan on taking this to the supreme court.

    What the fuck dude I came up with that shit back in like 1957. I had an idea for a game where you have to complete objectives in order to advance and ultimately be victorious. The object of the game was to accomplish tasks. Look it up if you don't believe me.

    Well, I guess every single arcade shooter ever is absolutely fucked :confused:leeping2 .
    It's obvious they're just out for the cash. This will never go through.

    This is probably what stop Companies performing Original Concepts/Designs and Producing said Material. No matter what happens there will always be a Lawsuit because of fucking idiots, if they're honestly that desperate for a quick buck...Make a decent fucking Product of your own.
