Ouch, worrying times for Nintendo?

Worrying times? They could sell their mountain of gold.

People seem to forget the amount of money Nintendo makes.

I clicked on this link hoping to see a white wii vest

You are not the only one, I honestly thought it was some kind of suit as well until I read the description.

akashifire3104d ago

The title should've used "law suit" instead of just "suit" :P

Pennywise3104d ago (Edited 3104d ago )

Should of said law suit... I thought they were coming out with a full body Wii Fit suit!

ZombieNinjaPanda3104d ago

I wonder if they have a solid claim or just trying to leech from Nintendo...

asdr3wsfas3104d ago

They probably won't settle until they know the merits of the suit. Even then they'll likely file motions to dismiss and request summary judgment. If the other party survives this then the claim goes way up in price and you're most likely to see a settlement. Even then nintendo might fight it out.

Treble damages are harsh, if they push for those Nintendo isn't settling because it's basically a huge punishment for (allegedly) ripping them off.

Fyzzu3104d ago

Ouch. Still, I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out - much as suits like this seem to crop up regularly, if it's true that IA and Nintendo were in contact prior to the Wii Fit's launch, this could actually have some serious implications.

Yeh I would be worried about this as well, Nintendo should just pay up and settle it to get it out the way.
