Nintendo Facing Ban on Wii, GameCube Controllers

Nintendo is facing a ban on sales of the Wavebird, Classic Controller, and Nintendo GameCube controller for its Wii and GameCube systems after it lost a bid to overturn a $21 million patent-infringement verdict.

U.S. District Judge Ron Clark rejected Nintendo's request for a new trial in the case won by Anascape Ltd. The judge said that he would stop sales of the Wii Classic Controller, WaveBird controller and Nintendo GameCube...

Note: The Wii remote and Nunchuk do not infringe on the patent and therefore are in no danger of being banned.

Phew just bought myself 3x official new sealed platinum pads even though the announced jap pads were due to come out soon

Hard to find official GC pads that are new (at least in GB)and the 3rd party stuff is very bad

Solely for Pikmin2 and Four Swords, maybe a little bit of Rogue
