This Day in History: Garry Kitchen Testifies Against the Game Genie

On this day in 1991, Nintendo and Galoob went to trial in a federal court to determine whether the Game Genie violated Nintendo's intellectual property rights.

The Game Genie, which allowed users to change the data on their NES games in order to (typically) cheat, was under attack by Nintendo, who managed to get the product banned before going to trial. To further its attack in court, Nintendo brought in legendary game designer Garry Kitchen to testify against it on this day.

The story is too old to be commented.
