I guess Nintendo was willing to take the chance, considering how much extra money the Wii had already made them. Still, just makes you wonder why Sony didn't utilize it first.

It's a patent owned by an ex-sony employee, not Sony.

And why is when a topic about Sony getting sued, people roll their eyes, but if anyone else is.........then justice is being served?

Because they had nothing whatsoever to do with it.

Considering it was being pitched back in 2003, they could've used it on perhaps the PSP. Or hell, even that ridiculous Playstation tv they released a few years ago, as opposed to using glasses although I know that it's completely different technology.

Every company takes the chance these days. Punishment for stealing other peoples patents is less than the potential profits.

It's not only a completely different technology, it's a completely different scale. The tech used in the 3DS screen simply doesn't work on TV-sized screens (at any kind of reasonable viewing distance/angle).

Double standards or something, I suppose. Not entirely sure why this is something the every-day person should even care about, it's not like we're getting anything from it.
