Nintendo Sued for Patent Infringement

Writing about web page http://uk.wii.ign.com/articles/750/750001p1.html?RSSwhen2006-12-08_112500&RSSid=750001

What puzzles me is why they’ve waited until now to do this? The concept of the Wii and Wiimote have been all over the Internet for ages. If they were really that concerned about financial losses, they’d have nipped it in the bud a long time ago. Also, how is a device only compatible with a specific games console impacting the sales of an existing device for computers?

    If they had started kicking up a fuss earlier Nintendo could have mad e sure that it wasn’t infringing any valid claims. Now they are obviuosly hoping nintendo will settle rather than have a tame Judge ban all sales until it is settled.
    Of course it may also be argued that until they saw a production version they couldn’t sue anyway.

  2. While it’s true they probably couldn’t sue, surely if they were that worried about loss of revenue then could have voiced their concerns directly..
