In 2017, Nintendo lost a lawsuit over the Wii remote and was forced to pay $10 million dollars. That ruling, as well as the fee, has been overturned.
That's two cases they've won. They also recently won a case where they won't let consumers cancel digital pre-orders and don't have to refund them in the EU.
Yikes that last one you mentioned is really bad.
Yep. It's a really stupid and consumer unfriendly move by Nintendo and the courts. Hope someone smartens up soon and overturns it.
At least we know now not to pre-order digital games through Nintendo. I don't live in Europe and tend not to pre-order digital games anyways, but being an informed gamer clearly has its benefits. I feel bad for the consumers who have been and will continue to be burned by policies such as the no pre-order cancellation policy.
This is extremely good news. Glad this got overturned. They need to allow canceling of digital pre orders though.
