Pretty sad for Microsoft but they haven't really used it as well.

The patent office is being stupid here. They are not the same and they should know that

Yeah but it was earlier owned by Nintendo though. I think since they are both in Entertainment section, Microsoft didn't get it.

They should probably give it to Microsoft though considering it's a video game IP.
