    "The complaint demands that Nintendo be enjoined and restrained from further infringing on the patent, presumably by taking the Wii off the market"

    Why wouldn't the company want a cut of the profits from the Wii? Why do they want it off the market? This is all assuming they win :p

    If there is a problem, Nintendo will just buy the patent. They have the money to, stuff like this happens all the time.

    True... it has nothing to do with Sony, but it's still been posted.

    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....

    ..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.

    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.
