Nintendo had been engaged in a legal battle over the Wii MotionPlus accessory, which was thought to have infringed on one of Triton's patents in the US.
Meh, not the first time a big gaming company has infringed on another company's patents and got away with it, as you'll notice this only happens in the under educated land of America. Go to a different country's court & I bet Nintendo loses this case 9 times out of 10, which we seen in the M$ vs Motorola/Google case, got away with it in America after a germany court went against M$. America the only country in the world you could win a case of selling mature rated games to minors as being against "freedom of speech", the under education of America is simply amazing.
"as you'll notice this only happens in the under educated land of America..." Well said!
Freedom of speech has nothing to do with selling M rated games to minors.
Exactly, yet a Supreme Court Judge in California says otherwise. It's stupid, I know.
truth hurts eh
Oh, okay, I see what you're talking about now. You're talking about this law. I thought you were talking about a store selling games to kids like 14 years old and the supreme court said the store was expressing the right to free speech. http://www.theverge.com/201... I thought you were talking about something different. You see, they tried to raise the age requirement for rated M games. The ESRB rating says 17 and they tried to raise it to 18, the age you are considered and adult in California, and regulate it. The right to free speech is also the right to artistic expression. Movies, video games, music, and art are all protected under this law. If you are under 17, you can not obtain a game in California, the store will ask for ID and turn you away if you don't have one. Atleast, that's what they should do, but that's a topic for another day. But if you are 17, considered a minor in California, you can obtain a M rated game because the ESRB rating allows it. The state of California tried to raise that age to 18 and basically stop a group of people from buying certain games which infact conflicted with the right to artistic expression.
