Nintendo Loses Wii Motion Controller Lawsuit

Thank you Mario! But your patents are in another castle! You have to appeal!

Judge Colin Birss said a Nintendo unit infringed two Philips patents in a ruling today. Nintendo, the world’s largest maker of video games, didn’t violate a third patent pertaining to modeling a body in a virtual environment, Birss said. "The common general knowledge did not include a device combining a physical motion sensor with a camera and the reasons advanced by Nintendo for putting those two sensors together in one unit are unconvincing," Birss wrote in the decision at the U.K. High Court.
