    the company that filed a complaint against nintendo will have to somehow show that they have had reduced sales in whatever that pointer device that they have is and that it is due to the nintendo wii, i doubt nintendo will take the wii off the market due to this like registered nerd said they will probably just buy the patent or something like that

    Interlink may have a good case against Nintendo becuase already people have figured out how to use the wii-mote for PC's and you dont have to use the sensor bar. So alot of people are gonna be buying wii-motes in the near future for PC use aswell unless Nintendo get owned or something.

    Can you use interlink's controller on the Wii? No. Can you use the Wiimote on a computer. Yes, but not within the confines of what Nintendo designed it to do and lots of software manipulation. Conclusion. No revenue lost because they are used for 2 different applications.

    Case dismissed.


    /After thought

    Hmm wouldn't a company that makes 3rd party controllers for a console be taking away revenue from the console maker? I'm pretty sure you can not sue over revenue lost because of a similar product. As long as the similar product is different or does the same thing in a different way.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but....

    The patent describes the advice as a "trigger operated device..
    ..that could be anything. The N64 contoller had a 'trigger' (Z) button. The Light Gun for the NES had a 'trigger'.

    As for the pointed part, it does not mention wireless technology or anything. Plus who the hell has heard of this company.

    "Hey we're a failing company, lets bring a law suit against someone!"


    Write like a four year old and I'll treat you as such Haz, proudly supporting correct use of English and grammar on the forums.
    Think before posting Ask a dumb question and prepare to be owned.

    FYI - Internet is always a capital I. Look it up!

    In the most graphic way possible, i have to say that if the wii is taken off the market, many many children and adults will cry

    Wow more of these threads? Nintendo was also sued last summer, and in August. Microsoft and Nintendo were both sued for patent reasons.

    Big deal, some stupid ass company wants to try and make dime off nintendo. It won't happen.

    If you think it will happen, no, your dumb.
