I'm still playing with the Wii I got launch day thank goodness. Too bad to those who havent gotten it




Actually that's BAD FOR YOU and GOD FOR THE PEOPLE WHO DON'T HAVE ONE. This is because, if they stop selling the console,  NO ONE WILL MAKE GAMES FOR IT, therefore you won't have any games to play.


A. This dosen't affect the main motion sensing in the Wii, if they loose it means Nintendo will have to redesign there controller, expensive for them but not detrermental.
B. These things take years, if they were quickly then Sony would have been hurting when they had to stop manufactuing the PS2.

first of all you are an idiot, the DS sold the most of any system this month
look at this
WiimoteNothing says "you're a success" better than a lawsuit. Just ask Borat creator Sacha Baron Cohen. Or Apple. Microsoft. Sony. You can add Nintendo to that list.

The Japanese company was sued by California-based Interlink Electronics for the Wii's copyright infringements on their very own Trigger Operated Electronic Device. The Trigger Operated Electronic Device, according to the company's patent as an "Ergonomically effective mouse for operating a computer" and an invention that "relates to a trigger operated electronic device... it concerns a mouse for operating a cursor in a computer system."

Although the diagrams of Interlink's device is no dead ringer for Nintendo's Wiimote, Interlink claims ownership of the trigger element common to both. Interlink said Nintendo's Wiimote has caused them loss of royalties and reduced sales and profits. The company wants a restraining order against the sale of Nintendo's controller, payment for assessed damages (multiplied three times plus interest) and reimbursement of legal fees. The company also demanded a trial by jury.

Nintendo has this to say about the issue: the company doesn't comment on pending litigation.
also for you incorrect sales
You'll get a lot of numbers in this post, but let's start with the ones that are related to this posts title. Let's talk about console sales. The numbers below are given by the Research firm, NPD Group.

The little dual screened juggernaut, the DS sold 918,000 units in November, bringing U.S. sales to a total of 8.1 million units. The old and yet still hot PS2 followed as the second-best with 664,000 units sold. It's sales probably boosted by Square Enix's FFXII that sold at 896,000 units and has a sales record of $49 million. Third place for systems is held by the never say die GameBoy Advance with 641,000 units.

Despite Gears of War being number one at the software sales charts having sold a million units and having earned around $61.5 million, Microsoft's Xbox 360 is at fourth this November with 511,000 units sold. However despite being fourth this November, overall the Xbox 360, has a life-to-date US sales number of 3.8 million units.

Despite having it's launch date mid November, The Wii sold 476,000 units for the month. The PSP follows the Wii, having sold around 412,000 units during November. Hopefully now that  MGS: Portable Ops is out, people will enjoy running around to check out WiFi spots. Honestly, that soldier recruitment thing that the new MGS has reminds us of the "old CD collection now has a use" effect that the PS1's Monster Rancher generated. So does this mean more PSP sales? We'll check the post holiday season numbers when the time comes.

So who needs to make shipments? The PS3 sold only 197,000 units this month, this despite Sony's promise to have 400,000 units available on launch day in the U.S.

Here's what NPD Analyst Anita Frazier has to say about the numbers: "It's just such overall good news that bodes very well for the health of this industry."

Wow, that is one nice blow.  Maybe those fanboys will shut up.

YES! YES! YES! if that happens I will be incredibly happy..


...Why?  What is the point of needlessly hating a company?


I hate Nintendo and I want the overrated/overhyped Wii to fail horribly.


You might be the single most schizophrenic person I've ever seen. The only rational explantion is that 3 different people are using your account. That must be it.

The Nintendo Wii itself cannot be sued, because it is just a non-living object. Only Nintendo can be sued.
And just because Nintendo is being sued, DS sales will be normal. PSP, PS2 sales are still normal. PS3 sales are down because of the limited supply. Fanboy. Or shall I say, Fanboys?

why would the wii lawsuit affect the ds sales? The ds has nothing to do with this.  and how on earth would this affect the ps3, psp, and ps2 sales?And what about the 360? if the playstation system's sales are going to be affected (wich they won't) the 360 would have an increase in sales too.

So I have enough proof to say the following:




































SHUT UP YOU STUPID SONY FANBOY.

This is ridiculous. Everyone's getting sued left and right
PM me if you can decrypt the following:

Your hint is: "12345" (You NEED this to get it)
Another hint: Encryptor is spelled with a -or, not -er
Another: Where do you go when you need help? Why would I tell you how to spell "encryptor?"
And another: You won't have to leave this browser window to figure it out
Finally someone got it: Congrats to SecretAgentMan on 7/13/07

We seriously need to get rid of fanboys. I think fanboyism should be against the rules here at PSU.

Not true.  They've been a little far apart.

Standing from a neutral standpoint. Wii's bread & butter is the remote. If the judge decides for Nintendo too discontinue the "Wiimote", this could be devastating. However, if the judge says "Nintendo pay up" I don't see too much of a problem.
