Nintendo Gets Sued Over The Wii

Ever heard of the Wavit remote? It’s totally okay if you haven’t; that’s not what this story is about. The Wavit Remote’s makers on the other hand… Well, they’ve decided to up and sue Nintendo over the Wii. Not only that, but they’ve included other retailers and manufacturers — including WalMart — in the complaint as well. And they’ve chosen the setting most likely to yield a win: the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Texas.

These guys must really want a payday.

the wavit and the wii may seem similar but are used in different applications. The wavit is for PC and the wii is for gaming on the tv.

Nintendo did not steal any business or profits from the wavit because you cant use a wii on a pc. Ergo you get the wavit.

not only that but that is just how progression works. You take something and improve on it. Consoles have been doing that since pong.

The patent is for the technology, it doesn't really matter how it's applied.

The question is why did they decide to do it just now at the end of the Wii's life cycle

This has been the worst year for Nintendo.

Its not a big deal, I mean they all have bad years. Sony had some pretty bad years with the media and Ms had to deal with the press over its hardware issues and what not.

This just means Nintendo isn't perfect, nothing is. Nor are they are as original as everyone is lead to believe, all these companies will have better days and unfortunately have bad ones as well.

I am sure they will settle this and before you know it the wii will be off the market and in comes the wiiu. Things will be back to normal and another desperate industrialist will come scratching for a lawsuit.

Its just how it is.

Yes, but this year has been bad for all of Nintendo's consoles: the Wii, 3DS, and the WiiU, which isn't even out yet. I'm not sure if they can be where they were with the NES, SNES, and 64, at least not until after the WiiU, then maybe they can turn themselves around with the next console. Hopefully at least.
